The East End Dogsbody Who Got To Shoot The Queen

David Bailey is a real East Ender, who started as a studio dogsbody at £3.50 a week.

This morning, the papers are all showing the photograph he has taken of the Queen.

The picture is shown here in the Telegraph. Here’s a small extract about fom the accompanying text.

The pair are said to have got on famously during the photoshoot, which took place at the palace in March.

Bailey, 76, said: “I’ve always been a huge fan of the Queen. She has very kind eyes with a mischievous glint. I’ve always liked strong women and she is a very strong woman.”

I have a feeling that this image will be one of the lasting ones of the only British Queen most of us will ever know.
