King George V and Queen Mary at the Delhi Durbar in 1911 commemorate their coronation as Emperor and Empress of India.<br />
<br />
Candid photographs showing King George V getting carried away on holiday - during an hilarious four-legged race on board the Royal Yacht - have come to light.<br />
<br />
One snap shows the current Queen's grandfather being dragged off his bound feet by his own footman in the farcical event in 1911.<br />
<br />
The pictures are being sold by the family of former footman Ernest Brown at auction in Sherborne, Dorset,
