Despite being the heir to the British throne, Prince Charles is proving he’s just like any other doting dad and grandad. In a new exhibition at Buckingham Palace, the Prince of Wales is sharing some very intimate family keepsakes, including personal photos of the royal family marking important moments as well as a never-before-seen photo of Prince George.
The exhibit, titled “Prince & Patron,” displays 100 pieces from the Royal Collection and artistic charities that Prince Charles has patronized, but it’s also designed to give visitors a behind-the-scenes look at his personal residence. So peppered throughout, visitors will see personal items, including books and family photos.
People reporter Simon Perry visited the exhibit and shared some of the most exciting details on social media. First, there’s an absolutely adorable portrait of Charles holding his first grandchild, a then-infant Prince George, while proud father Prince William is all smiles.
Then, in an Instagram video, Perry shares the gorgeous paintings lining the walls. But those with a keen eye will notice that on a table at the end of the video, Charles placed a photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from their May wedding day.
If you missed it, here’s an enlarged still from the video.
Prince Charles isn’t the only one in the royal family to covet personal photos of family. In May, a reporter spotted a never-before-seen picture of Meghan and Harry framed in the background of Queen Elizabeth’s II’s personal quarters. Evidently, being a proud parent and grandparent is universal to every family, royal or not.
For those in London, the exhibition will be on display through the end of September.
