Photographer Explains How He Got This Iconic Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Photo!

Photographer Samir Hussein got this incredible photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the 2020 Endeavour Fund Awards during a rain storm on Thursday night (March 5) in London, England.

Well, he’s speaking out about how he was able to get the now-famous pic.

“It was pouring down with rain, which can be very tricky when shooting flash photography,” he told Vogue. “[It] also meant Harry and Meghan would be under an umbrella, which usually means it’s hard to get clean photos of the couple.”

“Little did I know these elements would come together so spectacularly to produce a timeless image,” he said. “As they walked toward me, I noticed a flash going off from a camera in the crowd behind them. I knew that if that light could be lined up to be right behind as they walked, then it could create a dramatic photo, acting like a backlight in a studio shot. I managed to maneuver myself to line up the flash behind them and then had to work quickly, with just a second or two to get the shot as they smiled wonderfully at each other.”

“It’s a one in a million, when all the elements you could wish for as a photographer come together—perfect timing, great lighting, strong symbolism, and amazing subjects,” he added.

Find out where the formerly royal couple is now quarantining.
