The candid photos are striking compared to the official shots. They show the family shuffling around to find their place in the photos. The Queen is caught watching the crowds in the Mall, where tens of thousands of well-wishers have gathered, on a television.

The 14-piece collection originates from a photographer's assistant, who, as a descendant of the Royals, was allowed unparalleled access to the happy couple.
