Royal Wedding Photographer Bribed Kids With Smarties

The star photographer who took Harry and Meghan's official wedding photographs has revealed how a candid shot of the couple was taken by chance.

Photographer Alexi Lubormiski was charged with snapping the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex along with all their pageboys and bridesmaids after their wedding.

However, she chose to move to Kensington Palace as a temporary replacement for Prince Harry's departing private secretary Edward Lane Fox.

Prince Harry and Meghan married during a moving ceremony at St George's Chapel which featured an impassioned speech by who spoke about the "power of love".

Harry's goddaughters Florence van Cutsem, three, and Zalie Warren, two, and his godson Jasper Dyer, six, all took part, as did Meghan's goddaughters Remi Litt, six, and Rylan Litt, seven.

However, Ivy Mulroney (daughter of Meghan's best friend Jessica Mulroney) had to have her hands free for the ceremony in order to hold the bride's bouquet.

"I don't know much about her, but what I've seen or heard ― whether it's been true or false ― everything to me, it sounds incredible", Perry said.

A source told The Times that she already has a busy year of duties planned.

"As soon as their attention span started to wane, I used the Smartie trick", he said.

The Invictus games begin in Sydney on October 20 and while the pair's exact movements have not yet been confirmed, it appears they will be having a private holiday beforehand. "It was pretty darn joyful".

"The sun is setting right just over the top of Windsor Castle just behind them, it was just the most serene, lovely light, they're in love, walking around this handsome garden".

"It was just one of those magical moments when you're a photographer and everything falls into place", Lubomirski told Reuters. "They just looked at each other and they were just laughing, and it was this just attractive moment, and, when you are taking the pictures, you know you have something".

Others assumed the little one had just misplaced her flowers before the photos. "And they just looked at each other and they were just laughing, and it was this just attractive moment".
