You've probably seen Anvil's photo because it's been shared approximately a billion times since she took it:
No big deal, just an amazing photo of the gorgeous Royal Family looking beautiful and happy on Christmas Day!
When asked how she managed to get their attention for the photo, this is what she had to say:
“I’m just very bubbly by nature and I was with my daughter and I got a bit excitable, I suppose,” Anvil told the BBC. “I was just sort of shouting and I just went ‘Merry Christmas!’ like an idiot. I was fan-girling. That’s all I said and got them to look.”
Within hours of Anvil posting the photo, it had thousands of likes and retweets. According to the BBC, "her previous record was just five likes."
Oh yeah, there were also the countless messages from publications asking for her permission to use the photo and advice from people on Twitter about how much to charge.
“At first I said oh yeah sure. Have the photo. I know nothing about that,” she said.
But when she was made privy to the opportunity to make a little cash, she figured out a copyright.
Now, she has agents calling her up! Through her newfound fame and glory, Karen Anvil has remained just as bubbly and adorable as ever.
She's hoping to use the money she makes from the photo to send her daughter to college.
Anvil told the BBC, “The thing is — and I hate to play the single mum card — I’m a single parent, I work two jobs, which I’m proud of and I’ve always worked. Now I want to save money for my daughter for uni and if I can do that, and can get that opportunity that’s amazing.”
