The British Royal Family
In the picture you can see nine members of the British royal family.
The lady in the white coat with a white hat is Queen Elizabeth. Her husband, Prince Philip, is on the far right of the photograph.
They have four children, three sons and a daughter, Princess Anne. Two of their sons, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward, are not in the photo. There is only their oldest son, Prince Charles.
Prince Charles’s second wife, Duchess Camilla, is standing next to him, on the far left of the photograph. She is wearing a green dress.
Between the Queen and Prince Charles is Prince William, the older son of Prince Charles and his first wife, Princess Diana. He is holding his baby son, Prince George. The prince’s mother, Duchess Catherine, is behind the Queen.
On Catherine’s left is Prince Harry, her brother-in-law, wearing a black uniform.
Prince William and Duchess Catherine have two more children – Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. They aren’t in the photo. They haven’t got any cousins because their aunt, Duchess Meghan, and their uncle, Prince Harry, don’t have any children.

A family photo
This is my family: my mum, my sister and me. We like to dress up and we often go to the cinema together. I’m Tom and I’m the youngest. I’m only eight. My sister is eleven. We have fair hair, but we all have different eye colour. My mum’s eyes are brown, my eyes are blue, and my sister’s eyes are green. She is wearing a witch’s hat in the photo. Sometimes, she can be a witch to me. She teases me and hides my things. But sometimes she is very nice. When I am sick, she brings me cookies and we watch cartoons together. My mum also likes cartoons. She is hard-working. She has her own cake shop and makes the best cakes! She isn’t very good with technology, though. Look! She can’t even take a selfie. I help her when I can. She helps me with homework. I still can’t read too well.But I love to play sports and I can swim. My mum says I am the fastest and loudest in our family.
