Single Mother Captures Perfect Royal Family Portrait

As the grouping of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle strolled to meet the rest of the Royal Family for their annual Christmas Day service, many seasoned photographers were eager to snap the money shot of the foursome.

With Markle appearing every bit the future Royal, it was a single mother from the UK who scooped 20 of the best photographers across the country. Her name is Karen Murdoch and now she’s receiving more attention that she’s ever imagined. After capturing the image with just her iPhone, and posting it on Twitter, it blew up.

The photo has been “liked” nearly 40,000 times and retweeted almost 5,000.

The attention caused major media outlets to reach out and request to use the photo. It was used by four major UK newspaper outlets as their front-page image.

Murdoch said she’s been overwhelmed by the “bizarre and bonkers” response.

Murdoch told the BBC her secret to attracting the Royals’ attention.

“I’m just very bubbly by nature and I was with my daughter and I got a bit excitable, I suppose, she said. “I was just sort of shouting and I just went ‘Merry Christmas!’ like an idiot. I was fan-girling.

“That’s all I said and got them to look.”

Murdoch aims to use the royalties and rights of the image to pay for her daughter’s university tuition. She’s been flooded with offers to copyright the image and many believe the image is now part of the Royal Family’s history.
