  1. This is a wonderful photo with 4 generations. A special compliment to the photographer who catched them all in such a natural way. The photo expresses warmth and a union between generations.

    1. What an exaggeration! We are in the 21st century. However I think his haircut could be better; but still I prefer it to the Swedish little boys, from Ph & S.

    2. Well, I might not put that many exclamation points on it, but I agree that they could have done much better by George here. Why they would put him in a fussy shirt that looks like it belongs at a three-year-old’s birthday party, I’ll never know. He was dressed quite smartly for the Christmas Day walk to church, and I wish something similar had been provided for this historic portrait.

    3. That is exactly what I thought. I wonder who dressed him. Everybody else looks good.

    6. Agree 3:04pm. It's time to ditch the cutesy little shirts with the Peter Pan collars, he's been wearing them since his baby days. Is it an upper-class tradition or what? George looked so grown up in his dark suit on their Christmas Day church walk, why didn't they put him in that suit for this photo. Time for them to move George into some serious young-boy fashion. ~Rose~

    7. I have to agree. It looks more like a little girl's blouse than a boy's shirt. Since he's also wearing some "interesting" :) plaid (tartan) pants *maybe* the whole thing is some sort of homage to Scotland? (I'm trying to help you out, George. LOL). Could be an outfit of the Queen's father. Who knows.

      Europa.

  4. I agree, there is a lot of warmth in this photo. Glad they had it done and that they shared it! Lovely.

    Separate from the fashion, does anyone else ever think to themselves that Her Maj has met with 14ish prime ministers over the course of her life, weekly!, and therefore what knowledge she must have in her head? I'm knocked out by it. She is amazing.

    1. dellbab68, I agree with you. Queen Elizabeth is unmatched in history, in my opinion, and no one is likely to surpass her in terms of her long reign and the confidences shared with her by the long list of prime ministers.

      Fashion-wise, I think all of the men (including the little prince) look dashing, and, of course, the Queen looks lovely in her ice blue dress and her jewels. I hope the New Year is a good one for them and us commoners :)

    2. Agree with you, Dellbabe! If this handbag could talk....(she even carries it on this photo here!)

  5. Merci Tante Meghan qui a œuvré que george porte un pantalon sinon il n'aurait eu droit de le porter que à l'âge de 12 ans! Il aurait pû porter un blazer pour le côté institutionnel. 4 générations, une reine et 3 héritiers au trône. La monarchie sera mâle les prochaines décennies....La Reine pourrait abdiquer pour Charles qui a tout de même 73 ans! Il sera Roi au grand maximum durant 20 ans et encore...William sera Roi à 50 donc un roi jeune....La reine est detendue; le Duc d'Edimbourg Prince Philip se porte mieux. Andrew aux oubliettes..Ouf

    1. Les parents de Charles se sont mariés le 20 novembre 1947, il est né le 14 novembre 1948. Charles n'a pas 73 ans, il vient juste de fêter ses 71 ans.

    2. Nothing to do with Tante Meghan. What a load of n'importe quoi!!!!

    3. I fully agree with Gladys!!! Why invent when there is no evidence?

  6. Beautiful photo! Excellent outfit on George! Long pants but still dressed like a boy, not a miniature man. The British know how to dress children!

    1. I don't agree but I know in the UK they have a different opinion. Little George wears a blouse that would suit a 3 year old. And lady Louise is a total disastre which I don't understand because the duchess of Wessex has a good taste concerning her own clothes. She could advise her daughter.

    2. Little George wears a shirt similar to what his father wore for "official" occasions, for example on this picture on the balcony of Kensington Palace: https://www.shutterstock.com/editorial/image-editorial/trooping-the-colour-1986-princess-michael-of-kent-princess-diana-prince-william-prince-harry-and-lady-gabriella-on-balcony-at-buckingham-palace-1353506a . It is not a sailor suit any more like earlier :-)) . We all know that for the Royal Family, signalising timelessness, tradition, continuity and recogniseability one, two or more generations later is important.

      As for Lady Louise, she is 16 and I am sure she wears what she likes to wear. I don't suppose that her mother or anyone else forces her to wear clothing she does not like. I think words like "disastrous" are wholly inappropriate just because someone does not understand/like someone else's choices.

    3. To be honest most British people wouldn't dream of dressing their children like that. Not even for a formal occasion.

    4. Very old fashioned style for a boy.

  7. J'aime beaucoup cette photo... Nous voyons enfin Georges en pantalon mais cette chemisette n'est pas en harmonie !

  8. Four Generations of British Royals. The Prince of Wales will be the shortest serving Monarch, since he is already in his mid 70's. I think he would make a good King. I love the dress of the Queen.

  9. This photo is interesting in that the Queen is front and center, William who is tall, is close behind, then Charles is standing on a step, which makes him appear taller, when in reality he is not tall at all. Then there is little George. He's dressed with an outdated shirt and pants that are wrinkled. One would assume for a proper photo, the clothes would be neatly pressed. Given he is just a little boy, keeping his clothes wrinkle free is not on his agenda. I do find it odd and unsettling, that they have appeared to make Charles appear taller than his son, more imposing, rather than keeping them at their natural height.

  12. A beautiful photo of the four generations of royal family members together. This would have to be one of the most beautiful photos I have ever seen of the Queen. So relaxed smiling into the camera, no pose just a radiant smile. She looks stunning in this particular dress, the colour is superb, offset by the natural colour of her hair. The sapphire, diamond and pearl drop brooch is sensational , a masterful piece of jewellery. The tone of her dress is the perfect backdrop for this brooch. Love the pearl necklace, gorgeous.

  13. The Monarchy is changing;as is the role of Monarchy;they tend now to use more PR people to maintain their image. The photo is great.What does the future holdas we know Her Majesty is the glue that keeps them all together; once she is gone Charles will use all his;ideas and sensibility to maintain their unity.

  14. I think the whole idea behind this picture is to send a massage to us that the monarchy will survive and is strong and harmonious ( in contrast to the awfull last months).

    1. Agree 1:46pm. This is the line that the monarchy will follow - the direct line and the direct line only. Others... take note and act/prepare accordingly. ~Rose~

  15. A lovely portrait of the 4 generations. I like the symbolism behind it.
    George does look a bit old fashioned but I guess it was this shirt or else collar and tie which might have been a bit much for him. The trousers do look wrinkled but hey, still like the photo.

  16. Is it me, or does George looks a lot like Diana's brother?. Never noticed before.

  17. he looks sooo old fashioned, kate and william should look how the european princess dress their kids its the 21st century!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. I think it's a lovely photo. I believe a reason for the dress shirt is that George was wearing one very similar to this in the last photo of 4 generations taken to mark the Queen's 90th birthday--it was also a stamp. It might even be the same shirt as it was too big for him in the first photo and looks distinctly tight now (Tried to embed a link but failed--you can google it if you want to check) but I think the colla ris different apart from anything else.
    As to European Royal children I am certain I have read comments on this site about the Spanish princesses being dressed in styles that are too young and the Dutch Princesses being criticised for wearing clothes that are too old :) Perhaps no-one is perfect!
