Life Through a Royal Lens explores the Royal Family through photography and brings together some of the most iconic images ever taken of the Royal Family to Kensington Palace.

For almost 200 years the medium of photography has created an unprecedented intimacy between Sovereign and subjects.

The new display explores the British Royal Family’s enduring relationship with the camera; from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s patronage of photography during its infancy to lesser known intimate family portraits, spanning from the 19th century right up until the present day.

There will be photographs from renowned photographers such as Rankin, Annie Leibovitz and Norman Parkinson. For the first time there will also be a selection of images taken by Royal Family members themselves, including the work of celebrated photographer and former resident of the Palace, Lord Snowdon, husband of Princess Margaret.
