Royal wedding: Meghan and Harry choose photographer with royal ties

While the couple is still making the news for a lack of United Kingdom and foreign politicians on the official guest list, including Donald Trump and ex-president, Barack Obama, Prince Harry and Meghan have invited a Nigerian woman among may other "ordinary" members of the public.

According to Fox News, the same man who took the now-famous engagement photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle that were released back in November, will also be photographing the royal wedding on May 19. In the photographer's statement in regard to being chosen as the official wedding photographer for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, he said that he "could not be more thrilled or honored to photograph this historic occasion".

Mr Lubomirski said he is delighted to be named the official photographer for the big day. He traveled in Peru as a young man and studied in England, and now lives in NY with his wife and two sons, the statement says.

Alexi Lubomirski is a well-known portrait photographer, and photographed Prince Harry and Ms Markle a year ago at Frogmore House, Windsor, to mark the news of their engagement.

No fewer than 1,200 guests at the Royal wedding on May 19 will be members of the public from a range of backgrounds and ages.

Meghan and Harry are now just over a month away from their big day.

But it is understood Harry and Meghan will see the couple soon, possibly during an official overseas trip once they are married.

Yet the Kensington Palace's tweet only used his first and last name.

Ahead of the wedding, Meghan has been baptised and confirmed into the Church of England.

He was introduced to star photographer Testino and joined him in Paris as his assistant for four years and has worked regularly for Vogue and Harpers Bazaar.

Mr Lubomirski lives in the East Village of Manhattan with his wife Giada and two young sons Sole Luka and Leone.
