Following the traditional links between the ILN and the Royal Family, a special edition was published in June 1986 focussing on the year in the life of the Royal Family since Trooping the Colour the previous June. This number, the “Royal Year 1986”


(Appendix List No. 179) was published in celebration of the Queen’s Official Birthday. It is published each year. The content index of this first issue is typical: the Royal Engagement of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson; a full colour record of foreign tours; coverage of the Queen’s family off-duty; a feature about Balmoral Castle; Princess Diana’ s fashion sense; a calendar of future engagements and a section on the royal children at play.
The front cover shows the Royal Family on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after Trooping the Colour and an engagement photograph of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson. It has 98 pages, measures 30 x 23 cm and was priced at pounds fifty pence.
