THE Royal Family have released a set of adorable unseen photographs of a very young Prince Charles alongside his mother Queen Elizabeth II and his father Prince Philip.
The royals have shared two photos of the heir-to-the-throne on their Clarence House Instagram page during a summer holiday to Balmoral in 1951. The first image shared on social media from 68 years ago, shows a two year-old Charles riding an animal statue, as the Queen – who was at the time Princess Elizabeth – and Prince Philip watch on with admiration. Charles can bee seen grinning from ear-to-ear as he is also watched on by his grandfather King George VI and auntie Princess Margaret.
The second image taken at the royals summer residence in Scotland, shows Charles sitting in his pushchair alongside his younger sister Princess Anne.
The pair were joined by the royals furry four-legged german shepherd who laid in front.
