Queen Elizabeth 90th Birthday Party Has Just Generated #Handbag TrendBy Anita V, UniversityHerald Reporter
The Queen just done celebrating her 90th birthday but apparently she wasn't the only one in the spotlight. And no, it's not Prince George.
Queen Elizabeth 90th birthday was celebrated by the Kingdom as she waved to the crowds from an open top Range Rover. Touring the streets - the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh made a few stops as the Duke managed to spot a little boy bringing flower bouquet for Your Majesty. He lifted the child so he can hand the flowers to the Queen in person as reported by the Telegraph.
The Queen's birthday also marked the official portrait released by Annie Liebovitz. The image of a great grandmother posing with her grandchildren has become the news as two-year-old Mia Tindall managed to steal the spotlight.
@the_british_monarchy have just released this photograph of The Queen surrounded by her two youngest grandchildren and five great-grandchildren, to mark Her Majesty's 90th birthday. This is the first in a series of three official photographs. It was taken at Windsor Castle just after Easter by renowned portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz. #HappyBirthdayYourMajesty

The adorable Mia is seen carrying great grandmother's clutch while looking at the camera. This 'handbag moment', according to the DailyMail, was spontaneous and unplanned. The toddler is the daughter of rugby athlete Mike Tindall and Zara Phillips. The cheeky display has surpassed the popularity of Prince George as the cutest royal.
The Mirror analyzed the official portrait and spotted James, Viscount Severn, the only son of Prince Edward and Sophie of Essex, is seen more laid back and casual putting his hands in his pockets. He's said to love horseback riding with grandma in Windsor. The social media also celebrated the Queen's birthday as Twitter's dedicated hashtag #HappyBirthdayYourMajesty came as a trending topic worldwide as reported by Kansas City.
The #handbag - referring to little Mia's pose - is apparently making a hit on the social media as well. People can't decide whether to thank Liebovitz of such a sweet photograph, or the little toddler for making an appearance that's made everyone obsessed with her. Here are some of the tweets on #handbag!
