Born 1939 in Oxford, Thomas Patrick John Anson, 5th Earl of Lichfield was an English photographer and a first cousin once removed of Queen Elizabeth II, his mother Anne Bowes-Lyon (1917–1980, known as ‘Princess Anne of Denmark’ after her second marriage) having been a niece of the late Queen Mother. He inherited the Earldom of Lichfield from his paternal grandfather. In his professional practice he was known as Patrick Lichfield.

Lord Lichfield was educated at Harrow and Sandhurst, and joined the Grenadier Guards in 1959. On leaving the Army in 1962, he began to work as a photographer’s assistant, and built up his own reputation, partly as a result of having access to the Royal Family. He was selected to take the official photographs of the wedding of the Prince and Princess of Wales in 1981, and subsequently became one of the UK’s best-known photographers. From 1999 onwards, he was a pioneer of digital photography at a professional standard. He was chosen by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh to take the official pictures of her Golden Jubilee in 2002.

On 10 November 2005, Lichfield suffered a major stroke, and died the following day (Remembrance Day) at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford, aged 66. These fabulous vintage photos were part of his work that Lord Lichfield took portraits of celebrities from the 1960s to 1980s.
