Queen gifted portrait on her birthday
April 21 , 2014
Britain's Queen Elizabeth is turning 88 and the government gifted her a portrait for her own self to mark the special day. The black-and-white photo was taken by David Bailey back in March. He said he's always admired the queen. "She has very king eyes with a mischievous glint. I've always liked strong women and she is a very strong woman."
NBC notes that the shot captures her "youthful spirit." On another note, Britain's royals get to celebrate their birthdays twice. The queen's special day will be celebrated privately as for now and there will be a public ceremony in June.
