Welcome to a very special issue of Royal Life in which we pay tribute to Her Majesty the Queen as she becomes Britain’s longest reigning monarch. Since the young Princess Elizabeth succeeded to the throne 63 years ago, Britain has seen huge social, political and economic change. But throughout the highs and lows she has remained a much-loved constant and stable figure at the head of the world’s most famous royal family. With rarely seen pictures and lots of fascinating background facts, we take a look back on some of the milestones of Her Majesty’s glorious reign.
This issue also contains up-to-date features on the activities of our other modern day royals, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who recently issued a stern warning to paparazzi relentlessly stalking Prince George. In the process they also thanked the British media for not publishing unofficial photographs of Prince George or Princess Charlotte, and the couple’s press secretary said they would be “delighted” to share their own pictures as they pair grow up.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been amazing in their accommodation of the press, releasing some truly wonderful pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte and we look forward to bringing you more of the same – with their blessing.
