Paparazzi Perform Risky Move to Capture Viral Royal Wedding Photo; Was it Worth It?

May 21, 2018

All eyes were on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle last Saturday. The newly-announced Duke and Duchess of Sussex were smiling from ear to ear that day, and so were the fans.

Most of us know that just days leading up to the Royal wedding, Meghan's father has had a difficult time. From the photo-to-cash scandal and then, sadly, his recent health scare of a heart attack, Meghan and Harry have had a lot of things to deal with.


It appeared that none of the above discouraged the happy couple from enjoying their big day. Thousands of photos were taken of the couple, but there was one photo in particular that has gotten the Internet going crazy.

The picture in question is one showing the newlyweds just outside the Ascot Landau Carriage following their wedding ceremony. The photographer was on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle and describes the photo as "purely coincidental."


Originally, a user on Twitter tweeted the picture with the caption, " I don't know who took this picture, but it's exquisite #RoyalWedding."

Thankfully, the photographer, Yui Mok, caught wind of the complement and wrote back saying, "Thanks, glad you like the photo. It was taken by myself, and I'm a staff photographer for Press Association based in the UK. I was positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle, and they passed directly beneath me during their carriage procession."


He continued on saying, "I should also add a big thanks to the PA picture desk, who crop and tidy up the raw images that we send to them directly from our cameras on big jobs like this, before they are issued to the wider world. They tend to be unsung, whilst photographers end up grabbing all the glory."

After giving recognition, he went on to describe the camera he used, "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."
