At one time, whenever we glanced at somebody glued to a gadget, they were playing Candy Crush. But more often on the train, now, the person sitting next to us is streaming the telly live on their tablet.

So here goes: North and Saint; Blue Ivy; Jaden and Willow; Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper – to name but a few! Above are Romeo and Brooklyn hanging out with some Storm Troopers at the film premiere of The Force Awakens last year.
