Crowd-pleasers Prince Harry with Meghan Markle during their visit to Belfast last month

In fact, a new announcement from Kensington Palace on Friday has revealed that the couple has chosen their official photographer for the royal wedding, and it is someone who has already proven themselves when it comes to taking handsome pictures of Markle and the prince.

Speaking about landing the coveted commission, Lubomirski said, "I could not be more thrilled or honored to photograph this historic occasion".

A fashion and celebrity photographer, Lubomirski spent four years working as Mario Testino's assistant.

While Kensington Palace hasn't commented on the Midwestern visit, they did indicate MONTHS ago that the California native would begin the process of becoming a United Kingdom citizen. 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.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen Alexi Lubomirski to take their wedding photos.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have announced that they will not be inviting politicians and dignitaries to their wedding unless they have an "existing direct relationship with" the couple.

The announcement comes just five weeks before the wedding.

Harry and Meghan, who have been together since 2016, have invited 1,200 members of the public to their wedding, as well as 200 people from a range of charities, 100 pupils from local schools, 530 members of the royal households and crown estate, and the community members of Windsor Castle.

Many details about Harry and Markle's nuptials have now been released, but they have still managed to keep some things under wraps, including who designed the bride's wedding dress.

Kensington Palace revealed earlier this week that the couple are not inviting any world leaders or political figures in their official capacities, although some may attend as personal friends of the couple.

Sadly, this means that Barack and Michelle Obama won't be at the royal wedding, despite speculation that Prince Harry would invite them.
