It is Queen Elizabeth’s birthday.

Our monarch has turned 88-years-young and a new portrait has been released to mark the day. The photo was taken by British photographer David Bailey and many say it shows a much more relaxed side of the Queen.

“I’ve always been a huge fan of the Queen. She has very kind eyes with a mischievous glint. I’ve always liked strong women and she is a very strong woman,” the 76-year-old Bailey told the Telegraph.

While women around the world drool over what Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wears, it seems her husband is not always the biggest fan of her clothing choices.

As the couple landed in Australia as part of a royal tour, Kate stepped off the plane wearing a bright yellow dress.

The Kate fashion blog What Kate Wore revealed the dress was from designer Roksanda Ilincic, although it was customized for the duchess.

The Mirror reported Heather Easton, who was in the crowd waiting for the royals, told Kate she liked the dress, but the duchess told her, “William said I look like a banana.”

It’s not the first time during this trip Kate has admitted Wills didn’t care for her outfit. When a woman complimented her on a green Erdem coat she wore, Kate said she liked it, but William thought it was a “bit bright.”
