I don't like these pictures. They looks pretty sterile and cold to me. I suppose they fit the birthday girl, then.
i totally agree.
the pics cast a sinister/"bleak house" light over the "everyday life" of the queen,rather than picture her as the royal mum and grandmum that she indeed is.
little mia saves the day with her funny pose, but the greenish cold light of these pics is so similar to the one that shone in the 2008 leibovitz's pics that it almost seem she pasted some grandchildren in,for the occasion.
