Queen Elizabeth II by Cecil Beaton

Just 3 weeks left; please check out this beautiful exhibition

'The telephone rang. 'This is the lady-in-waiting speaking. The Queen wants to know if you will photograph her tomorrow afternoon' ... In choosing me to take her photographs, the Queen made a daring innovation. It is inconceivable that her predecessor would have summoned me - my work was still considered revolutionary and unconventional.'
- Cecil Beaton's diary, July 1939
