This album, compiled by Trotter himself, contains photographs which he took during the visit of Princess Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh to Kenya in February 1952. It was during this visit that her father, King George VI died, and she cut short the trip to return home.
Trotter evidently had permission to attend events during the trip in an official capacity, as the majority of the images are close-ups and taken from vantage points which would have been inaccessible to mere onlookers. The pictures include a small number of images showing preparations for the royal visit around Nairobi, then a number of the Royal party arriving at Eastleigh Airport and greeting the assembled crowds. There follow a number of pictures taken at a garden party in the grounds of Government House, images from a royal tour of the King George VI Hospital and pictures of the Duke of Edinburgh visiting the Kenya Regiment HQ. There are images from a reception at Nairobi's City Hall, the last to feature the Royal couple themselves. The final images in the album are all of Sagana Lodge, gifted to the Princess by the people of Kenya, and where she was due to spend a holiday when she received the news about her father. Instead there is an image of the press conference where the news was broken to journalists, followed by images of the outside of Nairobi Cathedral during a memorial service for the King.
Particularly considering these pictures were taken fairly early in Trotter's photographic career, they include some impressive images of the young Princess in iconic settings such as on the steps of the BOAC aircraft which took her to Kenya, and possibly paved the way for some of Trotter's later commissions.
A small number of the images in this album have duplicates in the sets of prints at 2001/090/1/3, and there are also some enlargements in 2001/090/1/5/5.
