Kate's photo of Queen has 'hidden' image of great-grandchild missing from picture

NewsKate's photo of Queen has 'hidden' image of great-grandchild missing from picture

Royal fans have welcomed the sight of a photo never seen before in public taken by the Princess of Wales — in which there are a couple of hidden references to absent family members.

Some eagle-eyed viewers spotted one of the late Queen’s great-grandchildren in the picture Princes Kate took last summer at Balmoral, of the former monarch seated on a green sofa with the young royals all smiles next to their beloved ‘Gan Gan’.

Seated next to her is her oldest great-grandchild, Savannah Phillips, the eldest daughter of Peter Phillips, as well as Mia Tindall, who cradles her baby brother Lucas. Behind them are Lena Tindall, the middle child of Zara and Mike Tindall, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Isla Phillips and Prince Louis.

Standing right at the back are the Queen’s youngest grandchildren, Lady Louise Windsor and James, the new Earl of Wessex — the son and daughter of the now Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh.

One of the great-grandchildren missing from the poignant photo session with the Queen is Princess Beatrice’s child, Sienna. However, though not there in person, she can be spotted in a photo in the background of the family portrait.

A framed photo next to an orchid features Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi, with her father, Edo Mapelli Mozzi.

One royal fan, on spotting the tiny image, wrote on social media: “We have yet to get any official photos or appearances of Sienna Mapelli Mozzi, but she can be seen with her father Edo in what looks like the throne room at St James’s Palace after her Christening. Sienna was christened in the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace in April 2022.”

Other great-grandchildren missing from the photo are the children of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Archie, Princess Lilibet, and August Brooksbank, the son of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.

The family snap was shared by Kate and husband Prince William as today would have been Her late Majesty’s 97th birthday, reports The Mirror.

The late Queen would spend every summer at her beloved Scottish Highlands estate where she would invite her family to stay and enjoy long walks, family barbecues and picnics.

Last year she went to Balmoral on July 21 and remained at the estate to appoint a new prime minister there for the first time in her reign on September 6, two days before her death.
