Photographer Who Snapped Iconic Photo of Harry & Meghan from Above Tells His Story!

One photo that we’ve seen all over social media following the Royal Wedding is an overhead shot of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle holding hands during the carriage procession.

Now, Yui Mok, the photographer who snapped the picture, is speaking out with the story behind the photo.

“I had less than a one-second window to take that particular shot – whilst having to focus through a metal grill I was standing over – so was happy to get anything really!” Yui told Press Association.

In a tweet, Yui wrote, “I was positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle, and they passed directly beneath me during their carriage procession.”

“For that shot I used @CanonUKandIE 1Dx Mk2 camera and a 70-200mm lens. For other shots I had the @CanonProNetwork 600mm F4 (which is actually quite light for its size – just as well as I had to handhold it a lot of the time!) Drones would never have been allowed anywhere near,” he added.
