She may be Britain's longest-reigning monarch, but Queen Elizabeth is also a proud matriarch.

In the photos of her meeting with the new prime minister, Boris Johnson, three family portraits are visible in the background. The sweet pictures feature the Queen's grandsons, Prince William and Prince Harry, alongside their wives.

The silver-framed image, closest to the front, shows Prince Harry with Meghan Markle. According to People, it's believed that it was taken by Alexi Lubomirski during the couple's engagement photoshoot.

The photo behind it appears to be from Kate Middleton and Prince William's engagement announcement, all the way back in 2010. Avid royal watchers will remember that landmark moment, with Kate and Will posed for the cameras in St. James Palace.

The third photo shows just the two boys, posing in their military uniforms. Together, all three make quite a sweet homage to the Queen's grandsons.

Now that her annual summer vacation has begun—after it had to be briefly postponed, to accommodate her meetings with Theresa May and Boris Johnson—the Queen will be able to enjoy some time with her family, likely including her grandsons.

Every year, she travels north to Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands for an extended trip. (This time, she's slated to stay until early October.) Generally, most members of the royal family try to join her for a time, and that's expected to be the case this summer, too.

Balmoral has always had a special place in the Queen's heart. "I think Granny is the most happy there," Princess Eugenie explained in the documentary Our Queen At Ninety. "I think she really, really loves the Highlands."
