Un-seen photos of British royal family in happier times

An amateur photographer’s family has decided to unveil his collection of royal photographs taken on the Queen and her family’s earlier visits to their country home of Sandringham and the photos are incredibly heartwarming!

The photos, taken by Edward Jackson, were found after his death in November and are now being submitted to the Kensington Palace by his family in response to the Palace’s appeal to collect amateur photographs of the royal family taken over the years to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year.

“My uncle always had two cameras hanging around his neck just in case one went wrong. He was always on the lookout for a good shot,” Jackson’s nephew told the Daily Mail. 

“If Edward was still here, he definitely would have sent some in. We’ve picked half a dozen to send through,” they added.

Jackson, who lived in King’s Lynn near the Queen’s Sandringham estate, built quite the collection of photographs, with one showing the royals, including the Queen, Prince Philip, Princess Diana, Sarah Ferguson, and a young Prince William standing outside St. Mary Magdalene Church during Christmas 1988.
