Meet the Royals: Portraits of Monarchs from Around the World
THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND
This laid-back shot of the monarch, which shows her at home in Buckingham Palace, was released this past September in honor of Queen Elizabeth surpassing Queen Victoria as Britain's longest-reigning monarch. She's been on the throne for more than 63 years.
SWEDEN'S CROWN PRINCESS VICTORIA, PRINCE DANIEL AND PRINCESS ESTELLE
Sweden's sweetest royal, 3-year-old Princess Estelle, steals the spotlight in this official portrait with her parents, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel.
PRINCE GEORGE & PRINCESS CHARLOTTE OF ENGLAND
From the day Princess Kate announced she was expecting royal baby No. 2, we started waiting for this photo. And it delivers: a smiley George with his sweet baby sister, snapped by their mom. There are four photos total in the set.
ENGLAND'S PRINCE WILLIAM
In a portrait released in August, Prince George and Princess Charlotte's dad, Prince William, is seen in his full military regalia at all angles for an exhibit called the The Queen's People, photographed by British shutterbug Hugo Rittson Thomas.
PRINCE GEORGE OF ENGLAND
There's nothing quite as cute as a new picture of Prince George – and this one, released for the little prince's second birthday in July, is about as adorable as gets. Photographed by Mario Testing at Princess Charlotte's christening, George lunges forward at the camera from his father's arms with a big smile on his face.
CAMILLA, DUCHESS OF CORNWALL (ENGLAND)
Also photographed for The Queen's People: Prince Charles' wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, seen here. There are 50 formal portraits in the exhibit, including one of the Queen.
THE SWEDISH ROYAL FAMILY
The gang's all here! The Swedish royal family – including Prince Daniel, Crown Princess Victoria, King Carl Gustaf, Queen Silvia, Prince Carl Philip, Princess Sofia and Princess Madeleine – poses for a photograph in honor of National Sweden Day. The ladies in the family don traditional Swedish garb; Princess Sofia, then Sofia Hellqvist, doesn't wear a cap because at that point, she was not yet married.
NORWAY'S KING HARALD & QUEEN SONJA
The Norwegian monarch – who has been on the throne for nearly 25 years – poses with his wife, Queen Sonja.
THE DANISH ROYAL FAMILY
For the holidays in 2014, Denmark's royals had quite the reunion: the whole family, including Queen Margrethe II, her husband Henrik, the Prince Consort of Denmark, Crown Prince Frederick and Crown Princess Mary, plus plenty of siblings, cousins, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles, came together for this shot.
KING WILLEM & QUEEN MAXIMA OF THE NETHERLANDS
Willem, who became King in 2013 after his mother, the former Queen Beatrix, abdicated the throne after a 33-year reign, is pictured here with his wife, Queen Maxima.
THE ROYAL FAMILIES OF NORWAY, DENMARK, SWEDEN AND LUXEMBOURG
Talk about a royal reunion! Members of the royal families from Sweden (back left), Luxembourg (far left), Denmark (front right) and Norway (back right) gathered for a weekend getaway on an island near Oslo, Norway – and gave us this epic photo.
