It took nearly two months, but young Prince George has finally met the eldest prince in his life, his great-grandfather, Prince Philip.

George, born July 22, joined his parents, Kate and William, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in traveling to Scotland this weekend to visit the royal family’s residence there, Balmoral Castle, according to the U.K.’s Daily Mail.

Prince Philip, 92, has been staying at the castle with his wife, Queen Elizabeth II, on the royal family’s annual summer break since July. While the queen, 87, made a trip to Kensington Palace to visit George the day after he was born, Philip has been recovering from exploratory ­abdominal surgery he underwent in June and was not able to make the trip to London.

Prior to George’s much-anticipated birth, the queen had famously joked that she was eager for the baby to arrive because she was “going on holiday.” Now that the whole family is together on holiday in Balmoral, a moment for a historic photo opportunity presents itself.

The addition of Kate, William and George to the mix of royals already at Balmoral means that four generations of the royal family are present, namely newborn Prince George, his father, Prince William, 31, and Prince William’s father, Prince Charles, 64, all overseen by the royal matriarch herself, Queen Elizabeth.

Prince William and Kate, also 31, have been splitting their time between their homes in Anglesey, Wales, and Kensington Palace and Kate’s parents’ home in Bucklebury since George’s birth.
