Princess Elizabeth, future Queen of England, riding a BSA C10 250cc.
With the uncropped photo from 'The Motor Cycle' in 1941 there was no mention of Princess Elizabeth, but readers recognised the face.
So, now I see HRH Queen Elizabeth as cool too. Portrait photography always interests me and so here is a Cecil Beaton portrait of Princess Elizabeth.
Now I have connected her with motorcycling and portrait photography I can see through the wall to wall red, white and blue bunting of the previous weeks Diamond jubilee and enjoy a more rounded impression of HRH Queen Elizabeth.
Still not a Royalist, just enjoy motorcycles, portrait photography and seeing the human being behind the image.
