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.
