Hundred years of royal photos on display at Buckingham Palace

Royal family's photos from 1923 to 2023 showcased in exhibition


Among the exhibits are many portraits of the royal family, whose history spans over 100 years.

The exhibition opens with a portrait taken in 1923 to commemorate the engagement of Prince Albert and Lady Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, who later became King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. This portrait is displayed near the official portrait of King Charles taken during his enthronement in 2023.

Featuring works by renowned photographers such as Annie Leibovitz, David Bailey, and Rankin, the exhibition includes a colorful screen print of Queen Elizabeth signed by Andy Warhol (1985) and a portrait of Kate Middleton to mark her 40th birthday.

The exhibition showcases 150 photographs, documents, and letters from the Royal Collection and Royal Archives. It is presented in the King's Gallery at Buckingham Palace and is titled "Royal Portraits: A Century of Photography."

Included is a photograph of Princess Anne and Prince Charles taken by Lord Snowdon as part of a series to celebrate the Prince's 70th birthday.

A photograph of the late Queen Elizabeth II, taken in 1968 by Cecil Beaton, is one of the highlights of the exhibition (photo: Cecil Beaton).
