Four generations of royalty

It is rare to find a photo of so many generations of British royalty together.

The last similar occasion was in 1899, when the 80-year-old Queen Victoria posed with her direct successors Edward VII, George V and Edward VIII.

This time, the Queen, who is 87, is pictured with her son the Prince of Wales, 64, grandson the Duke of Cambridge, 31, and three-month-old great-grandson Prince George.
