This is a gorgeous coffee table book filled with images by my favorite royal photographer, Chris Jackson. I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes tidbits and closeups of things I'd never noticed (like Prince Charles patches his shoes!). A perfect gift for any royal fan!

I'll admit, I'm a fan of the British royals. To be fair, I'm also a fan of the Spanish royals too. I'm not exclusive.

An interesting look at the British Royal Family of today. For anyone who believes the role of the royal family is diminishing, you could not be further from the truth.

They are still the face of Great Britain and are often seen representing the country at sporting events, horse races & polo matches, in the military, at charity events, and more!

This book is full of photographs that well-illustrate the various roles where members of the royal family serve.

Brilliant!

Modern Monarchy is a stunning book which documents photos from big state occasions and overseas tours, Royal weddings and first days at school.
We can talk long about the book, but there’s no need to.. This book so beautiful , it is a must have if you are fan of the British Royal Family and seen through the Camera of Chris Jackson.

This is a beautiful book, filled with many gorgeous photos of the modern royal family over the last two decades! My only (minor) complaint is that the year the photo was taken is often not included in the captions, but overall, a beautiful collection of photos for fans of the British Royal Family!!

Gorgeous book by Getty photographer Chris Jackson, documenting the last ten or so years of the British Royal Family. My only quibble is that I’d like to have seen each photograph dated, for reference sake.

Even though this is a bigger book it is all photographs so it is a quick look thru. I could look at their pictures all the time. It is fun to see their different fashions and what they are doing.
