Photographer who captured stunning aerial shot reveals exactly how he got it

Kensington Palace today released the official photographs from Saturday’s Royal Wedding.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s big day was watched by two billion people around the world and thousands of pictures captured documented the occasion.

One poignant image was taken by Press Association photographer Yui Mok.

Yui snapped the royal bride and groom from directly above, and the result is an image of Harry and Meghan cuddled up in their carriage, which picked them up from St George’s Chapel and took them past adoring crowds in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Yui’s photo has been shared a lot since May 19. Some have since suggested its popularity is down to the fact that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are sitting in a sort of heart shape.

Whether or not you think this the case, the picture remains special.

Yui has talked about how he got it on Twitter. He said he was "positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle" and the carriage passed beneath him.

He said: "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!"

The photo has been described as "exquisite", "beautiful", and "stunning" by royal fans.

Yui said what he got was "purely coincidental" – a fortunate happenstance.

Yui, who was using a Canon 1Dx Mk2 camera and a 70-200mm lens, also managed to get a shot of Harry and Meghan’s stolen second kiss.

He added on the aerial shot: "I managed not to spill a drop of sweat…which wouldn’t have been very nice for them being directly beneath me."
