The Queen’s Yearbook Photo Is Way Nicer Than Yours

Queen Elizabeth II

Today is Queen Elizabeth II’s Sapphire Jubilee, making her the first British monarch to have held the throne for 65 years, and Buckingham Palace has reissued a very on-brand portrait to commemorate the occasion. In the picture, taken by photographer David Bailey back in 2014, the queen sports a necklace of 16 emerald-cut sapphires surrounded by diamonds and a pair of matching earrings, much like the ones I wore for my own senior portrait. Only thing that would have made this photo better? Lasers.
