Those big eyes! The Queen posed with her baby boy Prince Edward on 13 June 1964. Edward was three months old in this photo and looks rather taken by surprise.

Princess Margaret

Little Princess Margaret looks so precious in this sweet snap published in the Queen's Coronation book. We think the late Princess looked regal even as a baby.

Prince Charles

It's plain to see the resemblance in this adorable photograph of a young Prince Charles being held by the Queen, which was taken in1949. We love how he's pulling on her pearls - even the royals can't escape the vice-like grip of a determined baby!
