The original caption for this undated photograph of the old royal yacht Victoria and Albert leaving Portsmouth Harbour claimed that ‘their majesties were on board’.

The occasion might have been the 1935 fleet review at Spithead. Footage of the yacht at the review, from the Wessex Film Archive, is in the video accompanying this story.
