George VI: The Reluctant King


The Real King George VI greeting a pig in 1942.

George VI: The Reluctant King Don't fail to click on these wonderful photos of the King from infancy. There are 28 pictures in all and believe me, you are in for a real treat. I never knew how much Prince Charles takes after his grandfather before seeing these great vintage photos from Life Magazine.

Hi Rosemary,

I love the pictures of the king...you are right, Prince Charles really looks like his grandpa.

Happy 4th of July!

I also can't believe how much the present Queen Elizabeth, in her older age looks just like her grandmother, Queen Mary! Funny how looks continue on for so many generations. Thanks so much for the reference - loved the pix. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July. Me, after giving the dogs their anti-anxiety meds from the vet will spend a quiet night at home. (The doggies get very stressed hearing fireworks, even several blocks away.). We all send our best to Webster, too. - Lana
