Karen Anvil, of Norfolk, shot to fame after capturing ‘Fab Four’ walking to church
This time her daughter grabbed candid royal snap when at the BAFTAs in London
She captured the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, with an excited smile on her face
The single mother who took the now-famous photo of the ‘fab four’ smiling on Christmas Day at Sandringham has once again helped get the perfect royal image.
Karen Anvil, from Watlington, Norfolk, shot to fame after capturing William, Kate, Harry, and Meghan, walking to church in 2017 and claims to have raked in £40,000 from the snap.
And she was back to her old tricks when at the EE British Academy Film Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London, on Sunday – this time with the help of her daughter.
Capturing the Duchess of Cambridge, 37, with an excited smile on her face, the royal looks directly at the camera after the hospital worker’s daughter Rachel told her ‘she looked beautiful’.
With eye-brows raised high, the mother-of-three looks ecstatic to once again be attending the prestigious event alongside her husband Prince William.
After first posting the image to Twitter, Ms Anvil wrote: ‘Hi Everyone! Thanks for all of your great comments – can you direct them to my daughter @AnvilRachel.
‘She got the snap when she told the Duchess she looked Beautiful – which she really does, doesn’t she?’
Looking every inch the movie star, Kate opted for an Alexander McQueen off-the-shoulder white gown with a floral motif for her glamorous red carpet appearance.
Ms Anvil was one of hundreds who braved the cold to get a glimpse of the royal family as they walked to church on the Sandringham estate in Norfolk on 25 December in 2017.
After ‘screaming like a fan-girl’ to get their attention, Ms Anvil, who had two jobs at the time, managed to take a close-up that ended up on front pages around the world – and has subsequently helped her make £40,000.
From royalties alone Ms Anvil now has a regular monthly income of between £600 and £6,000
Describing the experience as ‘like a lottery win’, Ms Anvil, of Norfolk, told the BBC: ‘The biggest change for me was that it was so nice to go shopping at Tesco and not be worried about whether I’ve got the cash in the bank.’
The image has since been sold to publications in countries around the world, with requests from Japan, the US, Canada, Spain and Italy all coming through.
