ROYAL PHOTOS26NADFAS REVIEW / WINTER her visit to Vindolanda Roman Fort,Hadrian's Wall, in May 1998, bendingdown to stroke a dog as she tours thesite. This dog, however, is Watney, a dorgibred by Her Majesty two years previouslyand passed to a friend living near Hexham,and what we are actually seeing is ahappy reunion between the two. The number of visits overseasundertaken by the Queen during her 60-year reign is unprecedented - in her SilverJubilee year alone, it was estimated thatthe Queen travelled 56,000 miles.Accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh,she visited Western Samoa, Australia,New Zealand, Tonga, Fiji, Tasmania,Papua New Guinea, Canada and the WestIndies. Joining the royal couple on thesetours were the photographers, alwayshungry for a new image.To mark the 50th anniversary of theQueen's Accession in 2002, a GoldenJubilee Portfolio of photographic portraitsof Her Majesty was commissioned. Tenprominent photographers from Britain andthe Commonwealth were invited tophotograph the Queen, including JohnSwannell, Rankin, Polly Borland and thelate Lord Lichfield - who, for the first timein official royal photography, used digitaltechnology to create his portrait. PollyBorland's portrait of the Queen is includedin this Diamond Jubilee exhibition.

Taken at BuckinghamPalace in December 2001, it is a record ofthe Queen in a contemporary context. It isinteresting to compare this with thephotograph of Queen Victoria taken in1887, the year of her Golden Jubilee. Thatportrait, attributed to John Thomson,portrays the Queen as she was - anelderly woman. Unlike the Borlandphotograph, there is nothing in the pictureto suggest 'Golden', nor indeed 'Queen'.This exhibition provides an eloquenttestimony to our enduring fascination withand affection for our Monarch, whethershe is photographed 'off duty' with mudon her shoes, or 'on duty' at the openingof Parliament, wearing George IV'sDiamond Diadem.
