INSIDER spoke to Getty Images photographer Chris Jackson about his new book “Modern Monarchy: The British Royal Family Today.”
He shared some of his favorite candid moments with the royal family.
They include a cake-cutting incident with the queen, a lively game of tug-of-war, and a funny moment between Meghan Markle and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.

He previously told INSIDER about his favorite photo of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry — as well as the most adorable snap of Prince George — but these aren’t the only candid moments treasured by the photographer.
“Over the years I have a huge amount of favorite moments,” Jackson told INSIDER. “While the tradition and formality form an integral part of what it means to be a royal, it is their interactions that remind you these are brother and sister, mother and son, sister and brother.”

“I love the moment the queen gets the knife stuck in the cake during the Women’s Institute 100 years celebrations at the Royal Albert Hall,” Jackson told us. ITV News also captured a video of the moment that gave Jackson some of his favorite photos so far.
