‘Crown from the Crowd’ project needs you

A groundbreaking project commissioned by Photobox – Europe’s largest photographic community – wants to create a unique photographic biography and archive of the British Royal Family with YOUR photos. ‘Crown from the Crowd’ is a project seen through the camera lens of the British public over the last century.

The nationwide search for the photos is being led by Jennie Bond. Jennie was the BBC’s Royal Correspondent for over 14 years during which the Monarchy suffered its most turbulent times. Jennie will be plundering the people’s archives for photos of The Royal Family from any one of the estimated 50,000 engagements since the Second World War.

‘Crown from the Crowd’ will whittle down the photos to 300 of the best for a spectacular new book – set to be published in early May – with all profits being donated to Help for Heroes. The photos from the public will sit alongside additional images taken by the UK’s leading royal photographers.

The project will provide a portrait of the modernisation of both the institution and family that provide our Head of State – all from the eyes of the people. The House of Windsor’s evolving people, personalities and behaviours will be charted in the book which will reveal the best hidden, forgotten and unseen images from an untapped national archive.

The project was inspired by Karen Anvil’s world-famous Christmas Day photo of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their way to the Christmas Day church service.

The two-week submission window opened on Tuesday 20th March and closes at midnight on Easter Monday, 2nd April.
