Queen celebrates 88th birthday


The photograph was taken at Buckingham Palace in March 2014 and was commissioned on behalf of the British Government’s ‘GREAT Britain’ campaign.

“The image will be used in activities to support the GREAT campaign, which aims to generate jobs and growth through highlighting internationally Britain as a world-class destination for trade, tourism, investment and education. Britain’s monarchy, including our royal heritage and property, is one of the biggest drivers of tourism into the UK.  It is estimated the monarchy alone generates over £500 million per year from overseas tourism spending.”
