Magic Moments: The Greatest Royal Photographs of All Time
Arthur Edwards has been Royal Photographer for Britain's best-selling daily newspaper, The Sun, for more than 30 years. He has captured the most poignant and memorable moments in the recent history of the monarchy, including such happy and loving moments as the start of Charles and Diana's marriage, Prince William's first steps, and Prince Harry's first day at Eton. His images range from candid shots to intimate portraits of rare moments when protocol is put aside and the mask of duty slips to reveal the true personalities behind the public figures. Arthur's tremendous career has made him a most familiar face on the Royal circuit. Princess Diana referred to him as "our Arthur" and Prince Charles introduces him to world leaders when they are on royal tours. Arthur also has some fascinating stories to go with his years’ worth of magical and momentous pictures. He was there when Patti Palmer-Tomkinson announced to the assembled press that her "Uncle Harry" would be joining her party—and out stepped Prince Charles wearing false glasses, nose, and moustache. Assembled here is a comprehensive collection of photographs and images, accompanied by Arthur’s own words, which together provide a valuable insider’s account of the history of the British royal family.
