Patron’s exclusive – Life through a royal lens

Join our latest Patron’s exclusive event for a guided tour of Kensington Palace’s latest exhibition!

Kensington Palace’s collections curator, Claudia Acott-Williams will lead a private before hours guided tour of the latest exhibition life through a royal lens. Claudia not only is the collection’s curator, but her speciality in royal court and dress history from the 18th century to the present day is sure to provide a unique look into the exhibit.

Life through a royal lens

For almost 200 years the medium of photography has created an unprecedented intimacy between sovereign and subjects. ‘Life Through a Royal Lens’ is a stunning new temporary exhibition exploring the British royal family’s enduring relationship with the camera; from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert’s patronage of photography during its infancy to lesser-known intimate family portraits, spanning from the 19th century right up until the present day. Featuring work from renowned photographers including Cecil Beaton, Rankin, Annie Leibovitz and Norman Parkinson, alongside a selection of images taken by royal family members themselves, this exhibition is a must-see for 2022.

The tour should last for one hour. After the tour, we have a reservation at the pavilion terrace should you wish to stay for a drink.
