Duke of York puts picture of Queen and Prince Edward on Facebook

Prince Andrew has posted a picture of the Queen, his brother Prince Edward and his sister-in-law the Countess of Wessex on his official Facebook page shortly before an official function at Buckingham Palace.

The image, which was taken before a charity event honouring the work of Prince Edward and Sophie, is thought to be the first behind-the-scenes glimpse taken by a member of the royal family and posted on social media.

The Duke of York captioned the picture: 'A family photo before we join the guests at my brother and sister-in-law's joint 50th Birthday Reception at Buckingham Palace, to recognise the important work with their many organisations - AY.'

The event at Buckingham Palace was attended by about 375 guests from organisations including the National Youth Theatre, the British Paralympic Association, and MENCAP.
