The Reluctant King. Prince Albert Frederick Arthur George (1895--1952), 2nd son of King George V of England and the one his father wanted to succeed him. That wish came true when Albert's older brother, King Edward VIII, abdicated, paving the way for Prince Albert to become King George VI. His daughter, Elizabeth II succeeded him.
King George VI, 1937 - known as "Bertie" to his family. Here you can really see the resemblance between him and his daughter Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth II). Presumably Kate and Wills named the baby prince "George" as a tribute to him, as William's "gran" i.e. Her Majesty was very fond of her father. #britishmonarchy #royalfamily
