The photographs of the British royal family by Sir Cecil Beaton (1904-80) are among the most widely published portraits of the 20th century and were instrumental in shaping the monarchy's public image. From teenage princess to mother and sovereign, Elizabeth II posed for his camera on numerous occasions. Containing over 50 formal portraits as well as candid behind the scenes photographs, and enlivened with anecdotes from Beaton's personal diaries, this book celebrates a unique collaboration.
