Queen Elizabeth II is celebrating her 96th birthday by honouring her late husband, Prince Philip, and her lifelong love of horses.

The Royal Windsor Horse Show released a new birthday portrait of the monarch, captured by renowned landscape photographer Henry Dallal, who has previously photographed the queen and her horses.

The portrait shows Her Majesty standing in between two of her fell ponies, Bybeck Katie and Bybeck Nightingale, on the grounds of Windsor Castle. She holds the reins of her ponies while dressed in a deep moss green coat.
