Informally Royal: Studio Lisa and the Royal Family 1936-1966 is about the photo studio “Studio Lisa”, run by Lisa and Jimmy Sheridan, who ended up taking many photographs of the royal family.

They were hired by the then Duke and Duchess of York to take photos of their family. They would go on to photograph the family a total of 13 times.

The book focuses on the founding and development of Studio Lisa, and it’s quite an engaging story. The relationship with the future King George VI and Queen Elizabeth is quite endearing, especially their earlier interactions. The collection of photos really does make this book really special.

If I had to say one negative thing, it would be that sometimes it feels like the photos aren’t where they’re supposed to be. As in, the text mentions a particular image, but that is not the one on the other page. However, overall, it’s a lovely book and a great addition to any collection.

Informally Royal: Studio Lisa and the Royal Family 1936-1966 by Rodney Laredo is available now in the UK and the US.
