The story behind that iconic royal Christmas photo

Getting that perfect photo can be a challenge — even for the professionals. And when the Royal family is involved the competition to get the money shot is even more fierce. 

A mum from Norfolk in the UK struck gold when she captured what’s been described as “the best image of the day” using an iPhone. 

Karen Murdoch’s photo of four smiling royals at Sandringham on Christmas Day ended up on the front of several national newspapers in the UK.

She’s been lauded for out scooping 20 of the best photographers in the country. 

Murdoch told the BBC she was “overwhelmed” by the “bizarre and bonkers” response. 

“It was pure luck – I took it on an iPhone and it was a great photograph,” she told BBC Breakfast. “The rest is history.”

Murdoch now plans to use any money made from the image to help fund her daughter’s education. 

The question is, what kind of iPhone did she use?! 

Mashable has reached out to Murdoch for comment and will update this post accordingly.
