Kensington Palace has announced that Alexi Lubomirski will be the official photographer on May 19 at Windsor Castle.

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

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have chosen fashion and celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski to take the photos at their wedding on 19 May. "Having taken Prince Harry and Ms. Markle's engagement photos, it brings me such joy to be able to witness again, the next chapter in this wonderful love story".

Mr Lubomirski said he is delighted to be named the official photographer for the big day.

On top of the statement from Kensington Palace itself, a statement was also sent out by Lubomirski.

He now lives in NY with his wife and two sons.

In the engagement photos, Markle, 36, wore a $75,000 black sheer gown by Ralph & Russo, while Harry, 33, donned a classic blue suit.

The exciting announcement comes weeks after the couple revealed their wedding cake maker, and the florist who will be in charge of creating the floral arrangements on their big day.

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.

Instead of inviting world leaders, then, the couple will extend invitations to 1,200 members of the public, described as "young people who have shown strong leadership, and those who have served their communities".

But many details remain under wraps, including news about Markle's wedding dress and the names of those who will attend the ceremony and the lunchtime and evening receptions.
