History's best royal baby photos

The art of royal baby photography is a tricky one. Make it too formal and you risk looking unapproachable and outdated. Go too far the other way and you may break centuries-old royal protocol. Wills and Kate - The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - seem to have struck a good balance with the photos that have so far been released of nine-month-old baby George.

With the family now embarking on a tour of New Zealand and Australia, we expect to see a lot more of them together. In celebration, we take a look at famous royal baby photos over time, including official photos and more relaxed shots.

From an austere photograph of a curly-haired future Edward VIII with Queen Victoria in 1896 to a candid snap of Queen Elizabeth II's eldest great-granddaughter Savannah Phillips enjoying a shoulder ride with her dad, come see how royal baby photography has evolved over the years, capturing the royal family at their most endearing...
