It's great to have friends in the media and this photograph was snapped by our pal Arthur Edwards, famous Royal photographer. He allowed me to publish this personal photo of our Queen with some of his own grandchildren. My first photograph was taken 40 years ago when the Queen was meeting some of our members in the House of Lords during our 75th anniversary. This makes us 116 years old! This little story is reproduced in my new book THE WOMAN WRITER which is now out there on the bookshelves, primarily in Waterstones. Obvously, Joyce Grenfell, whose centenary is celebrated next month, is in the picture, along with other members of our famous Society of Women Writers & Journalists. Many similar photos are included within my book.
