The future King George V, in 1885, while still third in line to the throne. His grandmother, Victoria, was still Queen, his father, who would later become Edward VII, was first in line, and his elder brother Albert Victor was still alive. When Albert Victor died in 1892, George moved up to second in line to the throne.
