Author

Foreword by Arthur Edwards, Written by The Sun

Arthur Edwards, MBE is a British photographer working for The Sun newspaper, who specialises in pictures of the British Royal Family, covering over 200 royal tours in over 120 countries, seven royal weddings, four funerals and seven births. Born in 1940 in London, he joined The Sun in 1977 and has been with them ever since. He appeared as a castaway on Desert Island Discs in 2011 and was made an MBE for 'outstanding service to newspapers'. Not bad for an East End lad who left school at 15.
