Prince George joins royal family for queen's birthday portrait

The photo may have been taken to celebrate Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday, but Prince George stole the show in the recently released family portrait.

The image, which was taken last summer, but released this week, will be made into a stamp set to commemorate the monarch's milestone birthday, Hello Magazine reported.

With a big, bright smile, George holds hands with this father, Prince William, as the queen and Prince Charles appear in the four-generation image, which also illustrates the succession to the throne of England.

The stamps will be part of a series that also include other images over the queen's long reign and even longer life.
