They are the kinds of photos that all of us once had in our family albums, a bit blurry, imperfectly exposed and a mile away from the pin sharp images taken by the hordes of professional photographers that follow the Royals every move.

An unparalleled collection of intimate, personal photographs of the British Royal family at rest and at play has been released by Buckingham Palace, to celebrate the summer Buckingham Palace exhibition, entitled "A Royal Childhood".
