This is one of the most beautiful old-time pictures I have seen. I love the way the Prince and his wife and baby are posed, forming a perfect triangle, yet maintaining a very natural tableau.

Triangle? I'm lost.
But, then again, I've seen and heard enough about Teh Queen this past week or so.

The corners of the triangle being his head and elbow and the babies head.

If a queen in a hive hears another queen about to hatch
, she simply heads over and stings it. If she's not there to sting it, it hatches and the hive has a new queen.)
