LONDON, Aug. 20 (UPI) — Buckingham Palace shared two vintage snapshots of a young Queen Elizabeth this week.

The first photo, posted to celebrate World Photography Day Wednesday, features not only the Queen at 28 years old, but her two children: Prince Charles at age 7 and Princess Anne at age 4.

The snap, photographed by Marcus Adams in 1954, is an outtake from what appears to be a formal photography session. The young Prince Charles — his laughing faced turned from the camera — is dressed crisply in red shorts and and white collared shirt while his sister — her face blurred from giggles — wears a prim pink dress.

Their mother dons a flowing brown gown, a huge smile and a heavy string of pearls while looking straight into the camera’s lens.

The second photo, shared in honor of the weekly hashtag trend “Throwback Thursday” on the British Monarchy’s official Twitter account is a photo of the Queen sitting in her study at the Balmoral Castle in 1972. At 46 years old, the British monarch is wears a patterned dress as she poses near her wooden writing desk. Two dogs are seen relaxing underneath.
