Toni Frissell. Winston, Randolph, and Winston Churchill, 1953
Churchill, his son Randolph, and his grandson Winston are shown in this joint portrait by Toni Frissell. In April 1953 Winston accepted an offer by Queen Elizabeth II to become a member of the Order of the Garter, an honor he had declined after World War II. In this photograph, taken in June 1953 during the Queen's Coronation ceremonies, Sir Winston Churchill is shown wearing the Garter Mantle and the badge of the Order on a chain around his neck.
