Prince William’s missing first Christmas pics discovered in cellarApril 27th, 2011 - 7:09 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 27 (ANI): With just days to go for the royal wedding, Prince William’s first Christmas pictures taken in 1982 have been discovered in a dusty cellar.
Royal photographer Ian Pelham-Turner was granted seven minutes with the late Princess Diana, Prince Charles and their first-born son in 1982, but the candid snapshots were lost shortly after a selection were used in the press.
The snapper gave up on ever finding the family shots he had taken - but they were discovered amid a haul of his photos in a Fleet Street basement in London.
“Recently I get a call from an agent to say he’s found 10 boxes in the cellar of this building and can we come and pick them up or else they’re gonna throw them in the skip (trash). We find a space for them and we put them into storage,” the Daily Express quoted Pelham-Turner as saying on U.S. news show ‘Access Hollywood Live’ on Tuesday.
And, in among the collection was one very special carrier bag full of celebrity shots.
“My business partner tips open the bag and out falls Diana, out falls William (pictures),” he said.
The shots were unveiled during the show and he admitted they brought back great memories. (ANI)
