I was wondering, how many "real photos" of the royals do you think there are online?
With real photos I mean photos taken by fans, at a public or private event.
But no photos from proffesional photographers/ agencies!

I have taken some photos myself, of the Danish and Swedish royalties and I have seen some of Diana.

It doesn´t matter if its your or sombody elses photo (as long as you give credit ofcourse :) )

so, lets "post away"!

Victoria at Ven, april 29th 2005

This is a photo of a girl name Karin and Victoria. They met on the island of Ven in the summer of 2001(?)

here´s the site where the photo is from:

Random photos of princess Diana. I never had the chance to see her irl, but many other people was. Here´s some of the (probably hundreds) photos of Diana

(I had them saved on my harddrive so I´m not sure where they are from. If anyone know the sources please tell me!)

these two photos are from a visit to Viassystems in 1992

In april 2004 queen Silvia of Sweden visited Ronna school in Södertälje, south of Stockholm.

It is very interesting thread Yenny, I think a real photo more interesting than the one which has taken by a professional photographer since real photo has no special finishing touch into it. Thanks for posting the photos

I think so to! A "real" photo feels much more real :)
It might not be as perfect as the press photos, but it gives you a more realistic veiw imo

ps. I love the photo of Stephanie! She looks really happy! t4p it michelle!
Howcome it was made public? Was it the "friend" who sold it?

Great photos. I like the fact that they are shown in a more down to earth light than having to be on for ther press at all time. That in itself while trying to go about your normal day has to be stressful
I think this photo belongs here aswell. It was probably taken by Rosa Monckton, the girls mother and as she was a personal friend of princess Diana, the photo is a "real" one :)

and this photo was taken at Harrods in 1997, perhaps by someone who spotted her when she was busy shopping

both from my personal collection so I dont remember the sources, sorry

Here´s the much talked-about photos of the swedish royal family at a private party in 2001.
All the guests were givien a camera to take photos with during the dinner. Then they was supposed to give the cameras to the host, but someway one of the cameras got "in the wrong hands" and the photos was leaked to the press.

The royal family was very upset :)

Great thread idea, yennie. I really love photos that aren't professional because they do seem more real to me. Wonderful photos, everyone!
what about Prince William and Prince Harry? and Earl and Countess of Wessex? and lots of more of British Royal Family but i knew Diana had loads of photo! like as about 100 or 200 maybe 1,000 photos!

I have no idea of where they were going, but perhaps they were going to St Maxime?

Sara Boyce
Yes she spotted me... I and some others stood on a balcony at a buildingfloor in the same "level" as her and I was videotaping so thats probably why she noticed me :)
Great photos, I've never been a big Maxima fan, but those photos are fb and have completely changed my opinion of her.
