Robin Nunn has travelled with the Queen for over 20 years. Granted exceptional access to the Royal family he has taken some of the most enduring official and informal images of Her Majesty ever photographed. They capture an unusual naturalness and ease combined with the dignity appropriate to royal occasions. Whatever and whenever they were taken, these magnificent pictures have in common that each shows the humour and pleasure that the Queen takes in her daily encounters with people all over the world. It is there for all to see in her justly famed charming and dazzling smile. Together with the text featuring real life accounts of the pleasure and joy experienced by members of the public when they have met the Queen, Happy and Glorious is a unique tribute from the people, in words and pictures, to Her Royal Majesty in the year of her 80th birthday.
Amassing a massive collection of photographs from the two decades he has spent by the Queen's side, Robin Nunn is the most renown and respected royal photographer today.
