A Personal Portrait of the Royal Family by Colin Edwards

A Personal Portrait of the Royal Family
elegantly showcases one man's devotion to the British Monarchy. Colin Edwards has become a familiar face at Royal events; so frequently attending visits and walkabouts that most of the Royal figures know him by name. Over the past 30 years Colin has collated a vast collection of photographs and has vivid emotive, personal memories of his many meetings with the Royals.

His interest was sparked when he was just twelve years old, as he watched the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Like many, he was mesmerized by the procession, ceremony and the pageantry for which the British Monarchy has become renowned.

The stunning, never before seen photographs in this book are Colin's personal tribute to our beloved Queen who has served the British nation and the Commonwealth with devotion and dedication for over sixty years.

"A Personal Portrait is a wealth of images and fascinating revelations about royalty. While fellow royal watchers will undoubtedly be able to relate to Colin's fascination, other readers will be able to experience the life of a royal watcher vicariously through his narration. One thing is certain: everyone who reads the book will no longer think of the members of the Royal Family as a enigma, but instead will appreciate them as genuine, warm and friendly people, with good natures and kind hearts."  –  Royal Central

"Behind the book is a genuine gentleman, whose aspirations for the book are as honest and humble as his love for the Royal Family."  
–  Daily Post

"Colin has successfully captured the softer side of these well-known figures to a professional standard. His candid shots of Her Majesty smiling and of the late Queen mother are particular excellent."  –  Amazon, Customer Review
