In honor of their 70th anniversary on Monday, Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh have released a series of new official portraits.

According to the royal family's Twitter account, the first photo shows the Queen and His Royal Highness "framed by Thomas Gainsborough's 1781 portraits of George III and Queen Charlotte, who were married for 57 years."

The other three portraits were taken in front of a fitting "platinum-textured backdrop."

While the milestone is significant—no other member of the royal family has ever reached a platinum wedding anniversary—the Queen and Prince Philip will reportedly celebrate the occasion with a small private dinner surrounded by close family and friends.

See the four portraits, which was taken by British photographer Matt Holyoak in early November in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle, below.
