This image was taken in 1992 by Jill James, who recalled: 'Princess Diana was visiting my daughter's nursery in [London] SW14. My daughter is the one on the end of the table looking at her friend as though to say, "Who did you say this was?" She is about six months old in the picture. Princess Diana was very amused at all the cornflour being thrown around and made sure she didn't get too close!'

'This was taken whilst the Queen Mother was on holiday at the Castle of Mey. She had turned up to watch the local sheep dog trials and support the event. As ever she was a dream to photograph, turning in her car seat to ensure l got the shot. She had a wonderful knack of making you feel very special and each time l was lucky enough to meet her, she was effortlessly charming' (snapped by David Butler in August 1992)

The queen at Stormont Castle - Diamond Jubliee 2012

A new book provides a unique photographic record of the royal family - from the people's perspective.

The Crown from the Crowd contains over 250 previously unseen, lost or forgotten images from the nation's 'attic archives'.

And some of those include photos of royal trips to Northern Ireland.

Do you have pictures of the Royal Family taken during one of their visits to Northern Ireland? Send them to us at prainey@belfasttelegraph.co.uk.

The book charts the extraordinary evolution of the people, characters and behaviour of the members of the House of Windsor.

The book, out now, came about after former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond issued a national call-to-action to plunder their albums and attics for unseen photographs of the royals.

The book will raise funds for veterans' charity, Help for Heroes.
