On Wednesday, the Queen, 95, made her latest in-person appearance and met the incoming Defence Services Secretary Major General Eldon Millar and his predecessor Rear Admiral James Macleod. The monarch’s appearance came amid concerns for her health as recently after it was revealed that she had been in contact with Prince Charles who tested positive for Covid just days later.
While royal fans were particularly delighted to see the Queen back to work and in good spirits as she cracked jokes with her guests, others were quick to comment on something the monarch had on display behind her.
Photographs and footage from the audience show the sovereign standing in front of a desk full of ornaments, framed photographs and a plant.
There are also a number of different coloured chocolate boxes on the desk, but one royal fan spotted that there appeared to be a previously never-before-seen family portrait that was sitting on the table in the background behind the monarch.
The snap shows the Queen and her great-grandchildren and royal fans are melting over the sweet image.
It appears to show the Queen joined by her granddaughter Lady Louise Windsor and her great-grandchildren, Prince George, Isla Phillips, Princess Charlotte, Savannah Phillips, Prince Louis, Mia Tindall, Lucas Tindall and Lena Tindall.
In the snap, Lady Louise stands next to Prince George, while Prince Louis sits on a green sofa alongside the Queen who holds a baby Lucas Tindall in her arms.
However, in snaps from the Queen’s engagement on Wednesday, part of the photograph is cut off, a feat which has left fans questioning if any of the Queen’s other grandchildren or great-grandchildren also feature.
While royal fans focused on everything from the Queen holding Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas in the photo to Her Majesty’s choice of chocolates which are displayed in front of the photo frame, there is a topic that everyone is agreed on.

Sharon added: “A beautiful picture of Queen Elizabeth II with Prince Louis we all love. Louis, he’s an adorable child.”
Many also speculated that the photo – like other photographs that show the Queen with her great-grandchildren – was taken at Balmoral where members of the Royal Family gather for a holiday.
Two further photographs were also on display, showing the Queen with her late husband Prince Philip and their great-grandchildren.
One of the snaps was taken by the Duchess of Cambridge at Balmoral Castle and dates from 2018.
While the other was reportedly taken in 2016 when Princess Charlotte was about 18 months old and the other royal children pictured alongside the Queen and Philip were between two and six years old.
A further royal fan chimed in to add their thoughts on the snaps, comparing the Queen to other grandparents across the globe who love showing off the little ones in their family by displaying photos.
