Royalist captures Queen visits in the North West

Royalist author Colin Edwards will be among the thousands of people welcoming the Queen to Lancashire at today's Maundy service.

The 73-year-old has met and photographed the monarch hundreds of times before, and today Colin will personally present her with his book, 'A Personal Portrait of the Royal Family.'

The book features many of the Queen's visits to the North West in a series of photos.
