Newborn royal Prince George’s official christening photos have made history by bringing together four generations of present and future British monarchs for a portrait for the first time in over a century.

In the main family shot, taken by fashion photographer Jason Bell, proud great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, sits surrounded by her three future kings – George, Prince William and her son Prince Charles, the current heir to the throne.

The Duke of Edinburgh, George’s mum Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, uncles Prince Harry of Wales and James Middleton, aunt Pippa Middleton, grandparents Carole and Michael Middleton and step-grandmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall are also featured in the happy family portrait, which was taken in the morning room at Clarence House in London following the young prince’s christening at the Chapel Royal of St James’s Palace on Wednesday.
