Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands became a royal residence in 1852 when Prince Albert purchased the estate for Queen Victoria. After Victoria’s death, the royal family continued to visit Balmoral annually in the autumn and King Edward VII is shown there with the children of the Prince of Wales (later King George V). They are Prince Edward (later King Edward VIII, then Duke of Windsor), Prince Henry (later Duke of Gloucester), Princess Mary (later Countess of Harewood) and Prince Albert (later King George VI). King Edward VII was crowned King of the United Kingdom, of the British Dominions and Emperor of India in August 1902, shortly before this photograph was taken.
