The Prince of Wales has given us a rare insight into his heart and his home as he gears up to share unseen photos of the royal family's dearest moments.

One photo that's been making the rounds online is a never-before-seen photograph of Prince Charles, Prince William, and Prince George when the young prince was just a baby.

Members of the public can get a glimpse of the Prince of Wales' home, as he moves some of his most treasured items to the Queen's home, Buckingham Palace, for an exhibition to mark his 70th birthday.

Prince Charles isn't the only royal to have a sweet tribute to Harry and Meghan inside the palace. The colour, pattern and story of the cloak are said to have fascinated Prince Charles since he first saw it on display at Windsor Castle.

Pieces on display include Johan Joseph Zoffany's painting, The Tribuna of the Uffizi, commissioned by Queen Charlotte in 1772, and the cloak of Napoleon Bonaparte, made of wool, silk and silver thread, taken from Napoleon's carriage immediately after the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 and later presented to the future George IV.

Each piece on display won't have a text description bow but, instead, audio commentaries by Charles himself.

"This is a very personal show", Vanessa Remington, senior curator of paintings at the Royal Collection Trust, said.

"It is meant to give a flavor of the Prince of Wales's owning residences and reflect his personal involvement", she told People.

Some of their contributions feature Islamic-inspired artwork and other traditions from the Middle East, including a moving triple portrait of three Yezidi women painted in Iraq by Hannah Rose Thomas, after they had escaped Isis captivity.

As well as supporting the Queen, Charles has become known for his charitable work, his founding of the Prince's Trust, and his campaigning on the environment and other issues.

The Prince of Wales and his deep appreciation of art will be spotlighted in a new exhibit entitled Prince & Patron, which opens this weekend through September 30.
