Tokyo, Japan. 1990

Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity

'My portrait of Princess Diana was taken in 1990, when she and Prince Charles visited Japan to attend the enthronement ceremony of the Emperor of Japan, Emperor Akihinto. I was commissioned to photography both Diana and Charles together; having recently announced their intention to divorce, my assignment was to attempt to capture any expression that may suggest the strained relations between them. As it turned out, the Buckingham Palace Press Office anticipated that photographers will want to try and capture this, consequently the Prince and Princess made most of their public appearances separately. It was therefore necessary for me to make the choice of which of them to photography, I made the easy choice of following and photographing HRH Princess Diana. This photograph was taken while she was on a visit to a children's hospital in Tokyo. I was granted a very short private audience with her and have always considered myself extremely privileged to have had the opportunity to meet and photograph the most gracious Princess of modern times.'
