Queen had ‘incredible appearance’, says royal photographer

The Queen had a special charm, says an old royal photographer.

“She was iconic,” Chris Jackson, a photographer who has photographed the royal family for more than 20 years, told Vidak For Congress exclusively.

“She would have this incredible look when she entered the room,” he explained. “As someone who spent a lot of time in her presence, I definitely felt the change in the room when she arrived. And that was clear.”

Jackson added that for most people meeting the monarch was probably one of the most exciting days of their lives, but for her it was “just another day at the office.”

“She’s quite disappointed that she can’t get her…

“It was never a dull day when you got the chance for a queen. She just had this incredible presence and was so characterful in front of the camera and it was fantastic face to face.”

One of Jackson’s favorite photos of the Queen is when he photographed her working on her famous daily ‘red box’ at Sandringham Castle.

“She gets these red boxes every day of the year except Easter and Christmas,” he explained. “I really like that photo. She just looked so happy in that moment and she worked to the end… I think that dedication and duty, that she was always focused on the task, focused on the person she was talking to, is quite unique.

The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral Castle on Thursday.

Her eldest son, Charles – who immediately became King Charles III – called his mother “an inspiration and example” to himself and other family members in a pre-recorded speech on Friday.
