The Royal Family have shared a selection of archive photos of the Queen behind the camera lens in honour of World Photography Day.

The official Royal Family Instagram account posted three shots of the Her Majesty taking her own photos.

One black and white image shows the Queen poised with her finger on the button, taking a shot on a camera, wearing a chic hat and white gloves.

Another pictures a young Her Majesty helping to children operate a vintage box camera. A third, colour photograph shows the Queen capturing her own photographer as she holds the camera up head-on, wearing a floral dress with co-ordinating hat band.

A caption alongside the official social media post reads, “to mark #WorldPhotographyDay, here are a few moments where The Queen has been pictured behind the lens.”

Many members of the public commented on the post saying they would, “love to view an album of Her Majesty’s photos… a view thru her lens!”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also marked World Photography Day on their official Instagram page by sharing a selection of finalist’s photographs from the Duchess of Cambridge’s Hold Still campaign, in collaboration with the National Portrait Gallery.

The post explained that the royal couple wanted to to “celebrate the youth of the #HoldStill2020 photography project and share the images from the ten youngest finalists.”

They added that, “photography has an amazing ability to create a lasting record of what we have all experienced and are experiencing.,” as the project was created as a way of documenting the nation’s experiences in 2020 over lockdown.
