Prince George of Cambridge's Baptism

The baptism of Prince George of Cambridge evoked a sense that the British Monarchy is here to stay. The last time a British sovereign was photographed with three future kings was in 1894, when Queen Victoria was photographed holding her great-grandson, Prince David (future Edward VIII), together with her son, Albert, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) and her grandson, Prince George, Duke of York (later King George V).

Queen Elizabeth II posed with her heir, Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, her grandson, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, and her great-grandson Prince George of Cambridge.
