The videos feature Queen Elizabeth and Princess Margaret in various stages of childhood, and their close-knit sister bond can’t be missed. Not to mention, everything from the frilly bonnets to the teeter totter is giving us major nostalgia about the good ol’ playground days.
The caption read, “Thank you for your messages today, on The Queen’s 94th birthday. In this private footage from the @royalcollectiontrust, we see The Queen (then Princess Elizabeth) playing with her family, including her younger sister Princess Margaret.”
It continued, “Head of the Commonwealth, Head of the Armed Forces, Head of State in 16 countries and the longest reigning Monarch in British History. Wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Happy birthday, Your Majesty! To those of you also celebrating your birthdays today at home, with or without your loved ones—we send you many happy returns.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton also celebrated Her Majesty’s birthday by sharing a photo on their official Instagram account (@kensingtonroyal). The caption read, “Wishing Her Majesty The Queen a very happy 94th birthday today!”
