About the Book:
From the excitement of royal tours to capturing official portraits and quiet behind-the-scenes moments of all senior members of the British royal family, Chris Jackson s singular insight into the most famous family on the planet has never been more exciting than now, on the cusp of the coronation of a new British monarch, the first in an astounding seventy years. Jackson s extensive archive of photographs of the former Prince of Wales and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, now King Charles III and the Queen Consort, chronicles the extraordinary life of His Royal Highness -- the longest-serving heir apparent and the oldest person to accede to the British throne, at the age of 73, following the death of his mother, Elizabeth II. Accompanied by Jackson s warm and always engaging text, this book commemorates the beginning of a new reign and documents more than twenty years of tours, engagements, celebrations, historic moments, and royal family gatherings in a singular volume that demonstrates just how relevant the British royal family remains today.
