A series of romantic images taken by Mr Lubomirski of Harry and his bride-to-be, including an intimate black and white portrait of the couple embracing, were released in December to mark their forthcoming nuptials.

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

“I could not be more thrilled or honoured to photograph this historic occasion.

“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.”

The photographer has the title His Serene Highness Prince Alexi Lubomirski.

He is descended from an influential Polish family who received the hereditary title of prince of the Holy Roman Empire from Emperor Ferdinand III in the 17th century.

Mr Lubomirski, who was born in England but now lives in New York, was given his first camera aged 11 by his stepfather.

He has since made a career photographing the rich and famous from Beyonce and Gwyneth Paltrow to Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Scarlett Johansson.
