    Join Royal photographer Hugo Burnand as he delves into his preparations and process required to capture the iconic images of Their Majesties The King and Queen at Buckingham Palace on their Coronation Day. Hugo will explain the process of posing, framing and lighting the perfect portrait as well as sharing stories from this extraordinary, memorable day.

    Born in Cannes, France in the Swinging Sixties Hugo first learned to develop and print photographs on the kitchen table at home, with his mother, photographer Ursy Burnand. Over the span of his career, Hugo has photographed an extraordinary list of royals and celebrities, including Queen Elizabeth II, Bill Clinton, President Mikhail Gorbachev, Baroness Thatcher, Lucian Freud, Victoria Beckham and Michael Jackson, to name but a few. 

    Hugo was chosen as the official photographer for the wedding of Their Majesties (then Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles), the wedding of The Prince and Princess of Wales (then known as Prince William and Catherine Middleton), and, most recently, The Coronation of Charles III and Camilla.

    Hugo's talk will be followed by an opportunity for guests to view the exhibition and your ticket will also include a glass of wine or soft drink to enjoy while you explore the gallery.

    Your ticket will also include a 1-Year Pass, allowing you to visit our current and future exhibitions at The King's Gallery, Buckingham Palace as many times as you like within the next year. See here for more information about the 1-Year Pass.
