English monarch, Queen Elizabeth II is the epitome of grace on the cover of Vanity Fair Magazine‘s latest issue, surrounded by her beloved dogs, Corgis and Dorgis.
The 90-year-old royal was photographed by the famous photographer Annie Leibovitz for a series of photos, as a family friend, a longtime royal historian and one of her former secretaries recount three intimate moments with the queen.
In talking about her experience, Annie said “The most moving, important thing about this shoot is that these were all her ideas, She wanted to be photographed with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren; her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh; her daughter, Anne, the Princess Royal; and her corgis. I was told how relaxed she was at Windsor, and it was really true. You get the sense of how at peace she was with herself, and very much enthralled with her family.”
