With its tartan carpet, floral seat covers, clutter of family photos and plug-in electric heater, it could be any typical front room as furnished by nans across the country.
The surprisingly intimate snap was taken as the Her Maj enjoyed a visit from New Zealand Prime Minister John Key at her private Scottish Highlands retreat.
New Zealand Herald reporter Claire Trevett describes it as: "A lived-in, comfortable room with paperwork piled up and in boxes marked simply 'The Queen'.
The Queen's well-documented love of dogs is also in evidence - with red gingham beds for her Corgis by a bureau, water bowls and even toy hounds in evidence.
It's not the first time we've had a glimpse of the Queen's cosy front room.
In March Prime Minister David Cameron paid her a visit, with snaps showing a similar amount of knick-knacks and charity shop chic.
Good on you, ma'am.
