The Queen (opens in new tab) has given fans an insight into her beloved family photo collection during her latest video call.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II took part in her first virtual diplomatic audience on Friday but being back at work wasn't the only thing that gave us a pleasant surprise. 

In a picture frame, placed on a sideboard behind her, eagle-eyed fans noticed a new snap of Prince George, Charlotte and Louis (opens in new tab) which hasn't been seen before.

But you'll have to look closely to spot the Cambridge kids over her shoulder on the left hand side of the screen.

The unseen photo shows Prince George, seven, posing next to his sister Princes Charlotte, five and youngest sibling Louis can be seen in front of her.

It's thought the sweet snap was taken by mother Kate, who is a self-professed "enthusiastic amateur photographer," and is no stranger to getting behind the lens to share some of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's (opens in new tab)most treasured moments.

But it's not the first time The Queen has given people a glimpse of her tender family photographs, she often has a selection displayed behind her whenever she is addressing the country over the festive period through her Christmas speech.

And just last month, Kate gave fans an insight into her own treasured snaps displayed at her Kensington Palace home during a Zoom call.
