A former BBC photographer will mark the Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations with a special exhibition of pictures she took of Her Majesty. Joan Williams, a member of the Richmond and Twickenham Photographic Society, will display a selection of her informal portraits of the Queen at the Landmark Arts Centre, in Ferry Road, Teddington.

She took the snaps, including many which have never been seen publically, when she was a senior photographer with the BBC between 1969 and 1992.

Her colour photos show the Queen and her family during state and other occasions and include a panel of Christmas broadcast photos.

The photographer’s work was published in a book after she worked on the documentary the Royal Family, in 1969, which won public acclaim and had a worldwide audience of more than 20m viewers.

The society decided to feature her portraits at a tribute to the Queen in its annual exhibition at the arts centre between Wednesday, April 4, and Sunday, April 15.

The display will also include work by pupils from St Catherine’s Girls School, in Twickenham.

It follows another special exhibition dedicated to the diamond jubilee, which opened at the Museum of Richmond last month and will run until June 23.
