Great to get my copy of Alison Jackson's new book 'Private' and to see some of the images from the various shoots that we've shared over the past couple of years. Even better was to see a couple of shots that hadn't been published but were awaiting the release of the new publication.
Kate lookalike Gabriella Munro-Douglas and I had great fun reading the Kama Sutra together and the image has to be a favourite for me. However, a slightly more provocative shot is the one of me wearing the crown whilst knocking back a G&T and having a ciggie. (Not easy to knock a drink back when you've got a couple of kilos on the top of your head! Now I understand what it must feel like for the Queen when she wears the real one)
What I wasn't prepared for as a spin-off of the shoot came as a bit of a surprise! As a keen Camilla follower (for obvious reasons) I have a Google alert that brings anything Camilla-related to my attention (alongside anything that Alison is up to). So, it was rather a weird experience to discover that a London art gallery (that will remain nameless) was actually selling the image of me wearing the crown. That in itself was a little surreal but then I discovered the price tag!! The medium sized print is available for a mere £9000 plus VAT. (And yes, that is three noughts after the 9). However this does include framing and free delivery within London. I'm still trying to get my head round the idea.
There are more fun images in the book which is available from Amazon, price £14.99. (However, there are two editions so make sure you get number 2 which has the royal selfie on the front.)
Methinks I ought to be on commission and increasing my fee! Nevertheless it's a lot of fun and we do enjoy working with Alison. (Do have a look at some of her inspired work covering the US election. Her Trump is one of the best lookalikes in the business.)
