The Royal Family used to ogle naked sunseekers on a nudist beach.
Ingrid Seward, author new book Prince Philip Revealed, said that “naked sunbathers came under the closest of royal scrutiny”.
She added: “During the summer, Edward, Andrew and other members of the Royal Family would frequently spend their days at Holkham Beach.”
Royal cousin Marina Ogilvy (later Marina Mowatt), who is now 54, would also visit the naturist haven.
Marina told the author: “We all used to have a good look through our binoculars.
“It was very funny and the Queen Mother’s remarks were always the naughtiest.”
The beach is near royal residence Sandringham in Norfolk.

According to data released to Bazaar.com, the Royal Family were tweeted about 20 million times.

"And that is a whopping problem for the royal family – Kate, Duchess of Cambridge especially.
"Next year marks 10 years since she wed Prince William while billions of people around the world watched, time difference be damned.
“As the next Queen (poor Camilla will have to make do with being titled Princess Consort when Charles ascends to the throne) this impending storm will be one that could cloud her royal future for decades to come.
“The institution of the monarchy, in this century anyway, is a beast that needs vast troves of public and media interest to survive. But what happens if people are suddenly far less interested in listening or watching?”
