Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles Signed Photograph
Exceptional colour satin-finish 11.75 x 9 photo of Queen Elizabeth II and her son, Prince Charles, seated with members of the Privy Council at Buckingham Palace on March 27, 1981, signed on the original mount in fountain pen, "Elizabeth R, 1981" and "Charles." Framed to an overall size of 15.75 x 14.75. In very good condition, with a diagonal crease that runs through the "E" in Elizabeth. The Privy Council meeting on March 27, 1981, marked the Queen giving Prince Charles consent to marry Princess Diana, who was not in attendance, under the Royal Marriages Act. Those present included incumbent Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher and former PM, Harold Wilson. This particular photo was gifted to Wilson and was later sold as part of the 'Harold & Mary Wilson Collection' in 2019. A very rare union of signatures of the Queen and her heir apparent, and a fabulous association piece tying Royalty and members of the British political elite. It will only grow in importance when Charles ascends to the throne in the near future.
