Presenter | Author | Speaker | Host | Facilitator | Expert
As a former Press Secretary to Queen Elizabeth II and media manager for Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, Dickie Arbiter has had unprecedented access to some of the most notable figures of our time.
With almost five decades of experience covering royalty as a broadcaster, journalist and Royal Press Secretary, he is regarded as one of the most knowledgeable and sought-after experts on the British Monarchy working today.
He is also the only Royal Commentator who has witnessed both the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and her Diamond Jubilee.
In addition to his duties as a royal spokesman, Dickie was responsible for media managing ceremonial occasions, all major state events inside Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle and The Queen's major UK engagements. He was also responsible for all operational media requirements for royal funerals, including that of the late Diana, Princess of Wales.
Dickie retired from Buckingham Palace in 2000 and is now the person the world's press turn to because he has spent nearly fifty years covering royalty, heads of state, and other globally recognized figures. This incredible experience allows him to bring his own personal insight into the public forum as a royal analyst, historian and as an international lecturer.
Dickie's memoirs, On Duty with the Queen was published by Blink in Oct 2014.
