The photo session was expected to last only a few minutes, but Beaton’s photo session with the Queen lasted for 3 hours. From then on, Beaton became a photographer for the Royal Family, taking their photos from the 1930’s up to the 1960’s. In celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, rare photos taken by Beaton will be displayed. See more details below.
