A video of Prince Harry and Prince William playing the piano has gone viral.

Shot in 1985 during a photoshoot at Kensington Palace, the footage provides a rare insight into the royals' early family life.

It shows a three-year-old William with his one-year-old sibling chatting, playing peek-a-boo with their father Charles and interacting with their mother Diana, the late Princess of Wales.

The family pose for photos next to the piano and take directions from photographer Tim Graham, who has captured the British Royal Family on camera for over 30 years.
