In a new family portrait, two-year-old Prince George definitely stole the show as Queen Elizabeth and her direct line of heirs posed for a four-generation picture.
The photograph is set to become a new postage stamp featured on a sheet being released by the Royal Mail in honor of the queen’s 90th birthday Thursday.
Photographer Ranald Mackechnie stood the little prince on gym blocks to balance the photo with his father, Prince William; grandfather, Prince Charles; and great-grandmother, the queen. George was fascinated by the bright lights but settled down long enough to flash a cheeky grin that will likely make the sheet an instant favorite of stamp collectors.
Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away….
Prince William and brother Prince Harry toured the set of Star Wars, Episode VIII, filming at Pinewood Studios outside London Tuesday. Ostensibly, the royals were there to salute the role of British talent and technical skill behind the film franchise — but it appeared to be more about an excuse to have a lot fun — and getting a hug from any galaxy’s favorite wookie.
The brothers even delayed their tour guide, Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in the latest movies, while they conducted a battle royale with light sabers they found in the props department. Their duel and all the brothers’ antics backstage were caught on video by ITN cameras.
