There are photos of Queen Mary (who became Princess of Wales in 1901)
holding Prince Charles(who is Prince of Wales as 2017 draws to a close).
She was born in May 1867 and he in November 1948.
There are group photos including Prince Philip (born 1921,British royal
consort from 1952) and Prince George(born 2013,if he matches Philip's
age will be King in 2110).

What are the most extreme differences in ages between royalty
photographed together?...or longest spans between one's birth
and another's death,or one's gaining and the other's last retaining
a family dignity or heirship?

Was Archduke Otto (died 2011 as head of the Habsburgs) ever
photographed with Emperor Franz Joseph (became Emperor of
Austria in 1848)?

Note of course that Elizabeth II and Franz Joseph succeeded
20 and 30 years respectively before the deaths of abdicated/
bypassed heirs would have made them heirs naturally.

The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.

How about photos of Phil at the Kaiser's 80th birthday party?

Sure. At his funeral.

They were only 62 years apart in age.

Prince Charles' christening photos also include his other great
grandmother, the Dowager Marchioness of Milford Haven (born Princess
Victoria of Hesse and by Rhine) who was born in 1863.

But there must be photos of Kaiser Wilhelm I (1797-1888) with his great
grandson the future Crown Prince Wilhelm (1882-1951).

Princess Anne's son, Peter Phillips, though a member of the Royal
Family, is not technically royalty, but photos of his christening in
1977 include his great great great aunt Princess Alice, Countess of
Athlone, born 1883.

This span is a few months longer than that between Prince Philip and
Princess Charlotte, but would be shorter than that between Prince Philip
and the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, if they are
photographed together next year.

I wonder if there is a photo of the present King of Swaziland, Mswati
III (b 1968) with his father King Sobhuza II (d. 1980), whose reign, on
one reckoning, began in December 1899.

Yes. First image that came up when I googled "Franz Josef" + "Archduke
Otto".

Yes,he had a number of very aged godparents!
She didn't represent a direct line of succession with him,though.

is a photo of Grand Duchess Alexandra Iosifovna of Russia holding her
great-great-grandson Prince Lennart, Duke of Sm?land
Hm,only 79 years separated them and Lennart had a shorter line to that
generation of Russian royalty.

There are photographs of Oscar II (who was the grandson of and old enough to remember Carl XIV Johan AKA Marshal Bernadotte) holding the father of the present King of Sweden, and there are photographs of Carl XVI with his great-grandfather, Gustaf V. I think there are also photographs of Christian IX of Denmark with his great-grandson, the future Frederik IX. As Christian IX lived to see the birth of his great-grandsons the future Kings of Greece, Georgios II and Pavlos I, as well as the future King of Norway, Olav V, I wonder whether there are pictures extant of him with them?

There are also photographs of Wilhelm I of Germany with his great-grandson, the future Crown Prince Wilhelm; who died in 1951. His imperial great-grandfather was himself born in 1799.
