Queen smiling broadly in new portrait

As Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 88th birthday today, she has authorized the release of a new portrait. It is a head and shoulders shot of the Monarch looking relaxed and smiling broadly.

The black and white image was captured by renowned photographer David Bailey. He said he wanted the photo to reflect the mischievous glint the Queen's kind eyes.

The portrait will be used for official purposes and in a global marketing campaign to promote British brands and tourism.
