Royal Photographs at the Queen’s Gallery – A Private Evening Visit, Lecture and Drink

30 May @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm



Beaton, Cecil (Sir)
Buckingham Palace
March 1945

Any visit to the Queen’s Gallery is always a special one. The curatorial staff are excellent and, naturally, the source of exhibits from the Royal Collections cannot be surpassed. So I urge members to register for this exclusive event featuring Royal Photographs preceded by a 30 minute lecture and glass of English sparkling wine in the Gallery gift shop.

The Royal Family have long been fans of photography beginning with Princess Alexandra, consort to Edward VII, who was famous for recording members of the family at home and on holiday. This exhibit will explore the relationship between the royals and the camera through royal portraits. It will explore the evolution of royal photography from the 1920s to the present day. It will further examine the relationship between the sitter and photographer, as well as the change in status of both the photographer and photography itself, in the over 150 stunning portraits of the Royal Family exhibited.

Do be sure to join us for this wonderful exhibition.

Please note Partners, Spouses and Friends are all welcome for this evening event.
