The Three Queens in Mourning --- King George VI died on February 6, 1952. This is a photo of Princess Elizabeth (the new Queen); Queen Mary (the King's mother) and Queen Elizabeth (the King's wife) making their way slowly into the chapel where the king’s body lay in state. A classic photograph.

Queen Elizabeth (Queen Mum), Princess Elizabeth & Princess Margaret. This study of the family in simple dress was taken when Beaton was invited to photograph the visit of Mrs Franklin Roosevelt, the First Lady of the United States, to Buckingham Palace. It was perhaps intended to show the ordinariness of royalty, who, like other Britons, experienced food rationing during the war | Photo by Sir Cecil Beaton, October, 1942.
