Have you seen this pic before? Royal family shares sweet throwback snap of Queen Elizabeth and Princess Anne

To celebrate the 69th birthday of Princess Anne, the Royal Family have shared a heartwarming throwback snap of the Princess Royal posing with her mother, Queen Elizabeth. 

The picture was taken by Annie Leibovitz in 2016 and appears to have been a snap from the monarch’s 90th birthday shoot. 

"Happy Birthday to The Princess Royal!" the Royal Family posted to social media. 

"The Princess Royal, the second child of Her Majesty The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, was born at Clarence House on this day in 1950," they added. 

Reports believe the Princess is spending her birthday alongside her mother and other family members, who may be in Balmoral with the Queen. 

Younger brother, Prince Andrew also took to social media to wish his big sister a merry birthday - along with a sweet snap of them as children. 

"Wishing Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal a very Happy Birthday!" he wrote with the Instagram post.

Princess Anne’s two children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall are not on social media, so royal fans were not treated to a gushing tribute for their mother.
