Britain's Prince Harry and American fiancee Meghan Markle recently announced Alexi Lubomirski as their wedding photographer. Lubomirski took their engagement photos after it was announced that the 33-year-old royal would make the actress his wife.

In a twist, Lubormirski also has royalty in his blood. He holds the title of His Serene Highness Prince Alexi. He is descended from a Polish family and has written a book called Princely Advice for a Happy Life, which was created for his two young sons.

Other famous works

As a fashion and celebrity photographer, he is no stranger to famous faces – he has taken photos of big-name stars such as Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Cate Blanchett and more. Here’s a look at some of his other work via his Instagram account:

On the local side of things, here's a photograph of model Lily Aldridge for the December cover of Harper's Bazaar Arabia:

And of course, here's a photo he took of Harry and Meghan's engagement:

With his impressive portfolio of celebrity shots, it's not a surprise he was chosen for the coveted position. Lubomirski was born in England, but moved to Botswana at the age of 8.

Botswana holds special meaning to the couple, who they took a trip there before their engagement, to celebrate Markle's birthday, and the diamond in her engagement ring is also sourced from there.

The royal wedding will take place on May 19 at St George's Chapel in Windsor.
