Freemasonry Today is honoured to be the fi rst publication to publish the new offi cial image of HM The Queen, although it is already on display at the Masonic Hall in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire. Permission has been authorised by Mike O’Keefe, Custodian of the Official Royal Image Library, a member of Ivel Lodge, No. 6846, which meets at Biggleswade. A framed copy of the photo was presented to Ivel Lodge Master Robert Lovesey – who is also Bedfordshire’s Grand Superintendent. At the time of that presentation, the only person who had received a print was Pope Benedict XVI, who had received his signed copy from the Queen during his Papal visit. Mike O’Keefe, who has been Custodian for 29 years, says the photograph – taken by Julian Calder – took place at Buckingham Palace in mid-March 2010.
