When royalty came to the Fair


It’s not everywhere that you get to follow in the footsteps of royalty. If you’re expecting to be standing on sore feet at London Book Fair, trying to keep your good suit looking pristine, reeling from multiple conversations and always hurrying on to the next stand at least you are in good company. In 2014, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall visited Earls Court to bring the royal seal of approval to the UK’s bustling publishing industry. Take a look back at the Duchess’ experience of London Book Fair from the archives at www.gettyimages.com.
