Queen Elizabeth II’s life has been like a fairy tale, so it makes sense that she’s finally the star of her own picture book. The Royal Collection Trust is publishing a children’s book in honor of her upcoming 90th birthday, titled The Birthday Crown.

In the story, written by Davide Cali, the Queen searches for the perfect crown to wear on her special day. She tries everything from a carousel to a fruit headpiece, but her grandson saves the day with the perfect solution: a paper crown that he made himself. The sweet book will be available for purchase on April 12.

Her Majesty's milestone birthday will also be marked with a new family portrait. The royal posed for photos with Prince George and Princess Charlotte that will be released on her birthday, April 21.

Keep scrolling to see a sneak peek inside the new picture book.
