A Royal Illustrator: Emily Stanbury

As if we all {yes, we Americans} can't get enough of Kate Middleton's posh style, Prince Williams' effortless charm, young Prince George's rosy cheeks, & baby Princess Charlotte being well, a little princess!

Just when we couldn't take a pinch more of Royal Charm--let me introduce to you Emily Stanbury- A.KA. A Royal Illustrator.

Emily is the artist behind these dashingly cute whimsical illustrations of The Royal Family.

Dwelling in Cornwall, England {about 5 1/2 hours from London} Emily creates her whimsy Royal doodles that have been popping up across social media & enchanting us all.

While it only makes sense that the UK's residence adore the royal fam--you & I both know Americans can't get enough of Kate, William, Harry, & the rest of the Royal bunch. While the peak that we get to have inside the walls of Kensington & Buckingham Palace is limited--Emily's sketches gives us a fun look as  to what it might be like to be a Royal.
Not-to-mention, owning a piece of Emily's art allows us common folk to have a bit of royalty inside our own homes.

Chatting with Emily you can tell where her talent & creativity stems from!

TYS: Has art always been a huge part of your life?

Emily: Drawing has always been apart of my life...I never saw drawing or painting as a career or job. It was just something I really enjoyed. When I was 16, I had a great teacher that pushed me toward illustrations. I studied illustrations at Falmouth University & I specialized in illustrating for children in particular character design & children's books.

TYS: What fascinates you about The Royal Family?

Emily: I became interested in The Royals after The Royal Wedding of Katherine & Prince William. I loved the dresses, the carriage, & the tradition of it all.
After George was born, I started illustrating The Royal Family...After posting my images to Instagram & Facebook I realized that people liked them --so I have carried on & now produce my illustrated versions of Royal portraits like Princess Charlotte's Christening.

"George is just so cheeky! I love thinking of all the mischief he may get into! Especially with his sister, Charolette. He always wears the sweetest outfits. I am looking forward to drawing Charlotte when we see more pictures of her!"-Emily on a few of her favorite Royals to doodle.  
Not one of Emily's, but from Kate Duchess of Cambridge Paper Dolls book

For those who want to get their hands on some of Emily's illustrations she is planning on opening an online shop where you can shop n' buy--but Emily is open to commission work & often displays her prints on her Instagram, Facebook,  Twitter, & Tumblr pages--be sure to check them out!

Just Like Kate:

As for what about the USA that fascinates Emily like The Royals do for us across the pond?

"I was lucky enough to get to go to New York City four years ago. I fell in-love with the city straight away....I live in the countryside so when I go to a city there is always so much I want to see & do! NYC did not disappoint!" --Emily. 
Well, Emily after seeing your illustrations is goes without saying you have a Royal gift & we can't wait to see what monarch moment you capture next!
