Queen photographed for new exhibition
Britain’s Queen Elizabeth, Prince William and the Duchess of Cornwall have been photographed for a new exhibition.
Taken by Hugo Rittson Thomas, the series of portraits show members of the royal family from several angles at once and will form part of an exhibit named ‘The Queen’s People’.
Speaking about the project, Hugo said: “It was a privilege to photograph her majesty and other members of the royal family and to blend the history and traditions of royal life with a modern photographic style. I hope people will enjoy seeing these photographs as much as I enjoyed making them.”
The glossy images of the three royals shows them in their traditional uniforms, with The Queen wearing a red coatdress designed by her personal dresser Angela Kelly, as well as the Waterloo badge of The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards and black court shoes.
Meanwhile, 33-year-old father-of-two William was photographed in his Irish Guards military frockcoat while Duchess Camilla, 68, wore a Bruce Oldfield-designed outfit and a brooch which was gifted to her by Her Majesty on her 60th birthday.
The images form part of an exhibit of 50 formally posed portraits which will run from August 19 to September 19 at the Eleven gallery in London.
