Here is the latest volume in a series that has become a royal occasion in its own right. The Royal Year 1989 celebrates the British royal family’s busy year – their public as well as their more personal moments – in more than 200 stunning photographs by Tim Graham, the award-winning photographer who knows the royal family best.
This year’s volume catalogues a busy time indeed for the royal family both at home and abroad. Royal tours included the Queen and Prince Philip’s trip to Spain, the Prince and Princess of Wales’ visits to France and the Middle East, and the Duke and Duchess of York’s visit to Australia.
All the major events at home are covered, including Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev’s historic visit with the Queen at Windsor Castle. Among the annual displays of pomp and pageantry are the Remembrance Day Service at the Cenotaph and Trooping the Colour.
In a more relaxed mood, the Prince of Wales celebrated his 40th birthday and the Queen Mother, in her 89th year was as busy as ever attending concerts and premieres and paying visits up and down the country The Princess of Wales continued to delight the world with her spectacular beauty and Tim Graham’s pictures capture the drama and glamour that have made her a leader of British fashion.
Tim Graham also shows us the younger generation of the royal family out and about on holiday at school, visiting the theatre and enjoying sports at Windsor.
The Royal Year has established itself as the premier photographic record of what some call “the world’s royal family”- it’s a delight for every admirer.
