“These photographs coming out at the moment are wonderful – to see HM during those years – the documentary last night, was incredible. To hear her talk about those days – to hear that wisdom. Deeply moving. My family were horsemen on farms – those punches are incredible creatures – more photography please!” wrote one fan.

Lots of new footage of the Queen has been released ahead of the Jubilee

“Our beloved Queen Elizabeth II. Delightful. Her Majesty’s smile reminds me of me. Her love for horses and nature,” penned another.

The Queen may look most relaxed surrounded by nature, but she has a busy weekend ahead with many Jubilee celebrations planned in the city. Due to Her Majesty’s frailty, it hasn’t been confirmed which events she will attend but it’s hoped that she will make an appearance for Trooping the Colour, a ceremony to celebrate her official birthday.
