This image was used as a Christmas card for 1983. Until the Royal Yacht 'Britannia' was decommissioned in 1997, The Queen and Duke’s annual summer holiday would start with a cruise through the Western Isles. This photograph was taken on board 'Britannia' during their 1983 cruise when they were joined by Princess Anne with her two children Peter and Zara Phillips, and Prince Andrew (far right) and Prince Edward (far left).
