Princess Elizabeth

1951

Karsh's official portrait of Princess Elizabeth was taken at Clarence House, in London, on July 30, 1951. It shows the young Princess happy and relaxed, only a short six months before the death of her father, King George VI, when she suddenly became the future Queen of England, with all the weighty responsibilities that would bring.
