Royals who step behind the camera: Take a look at their photographs

Royals are used to having their photo taken, but every now-and-again, they like to get behind the camera themselves and capture the precious moments.

When it comes to choosing an education for the world's kings and queens of tomorrow, there is a definitive break with yesterday. In the not-so-distant past, the Palace hired a private tutor who was guaranteed to keep the little princes and princesses from being compromised by the people they might one day 'rule'.

Next came the exclusive boarding schools. In Britain, Prince Charles and his siblings were sent to Gordonstoun in Scotland, a 'character-building' institution once described by the Prince of Wales as “Colditz in kilts” – a reference to a WWII-era prisoner of war camp – where cold showers and strict discipline were the order of the day.

Now in this more progressive age, royal tots are being sent to an even broader range of establishments from the alternative Montessori to local public schools.
