The Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II – June 2012

Historical Newspaper Images of the Princess Elizabeth and Her Family

With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee taking place this bank holiday weekend, we thought we’d mark this historic occasion by posting a few photos of Princess Elizabeth and her family.  If you’d like to see more photos of the Princess Elizabeth, visit the visit gallery on our Facebook page.

The interesting thing about reading stories in the newspaper archive about the Queen is the fact that she was still a princess at this time – although when we add more recent papers, she’ll evolve into a queen.

So if you’ve grown up with the Queen having always been the Queen, it’s very refreshing to see stories about her BC (before coronation).
