Royal photographer Samir Hussein has revealed how Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, were ‘really happy’ with the now famous photograph of them walking through the rain at the Endeavour Awards
In one of the snaps, Meghan and Harry can be seen gazing at each other and smiling as they tackle the wet weather conditions and cobbled streets arm-in-arm.
A second photograph sees the royal couple with their backs to the lens as the flashes from the photographers’ cameras lights up the darkness and emphasises the rain drops.
Royal enthusiasts across the nation were quick to take to social media – with many saying the smiley snaps looked like something ‘out of a movie scene.’
‘Only Harry and Meghan could make a rainy day look this romantic,’ enthused one, while a second penned: ‘Novels should be written off this photo alone.’
The royal photographer, who has joined the couple on tour across the world, revealed how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were talking about the breathtaking image
The photographer went on to describe the image as ‘one in a million’.
He added that he was ‘disappointed’ he might not be able to photograph the couple in the future.
He said: ‘I’m really disappointed that I won’t get to photograph them so much anymore.
He noted how he had been across the world with the couple, joining them on their tours of Australia, Fiji and Southern Africa, before adding: ‘I’ve really, really enjoyed photographing them. I’m going to miss photographing them.”
The photographer called the incredible image ‘one in a million’ and said he would miss snapping pictures of the couple
At the time, photographer Samir, who captured the magical moment, said: ‘It’s a one in a million when all the elements you could wish for as a photographer come together – perfect timing, great lighting, strong symbolism and amazing subjects make this a magical photo I am extremely proud of.’
Social media users were equally impressed, with one commenting: ‘This looks like it came out of a photoshoot,’ commented a third, while a fourth added: ‘Wow, what a great shot! Can I get lighting and fake rain to follow me everywhere so I can get a shot like this!’
It comes amid reports the couple are looking to buy a $13 million mansion round the corner from Tom Hanks and Ben Affleck, complete with a ‘granny annex’ for Doria.
The snap was taken during Prince Harry and Meghan’s farewell tour before the couple stepped by from royal duty officially in March
The Sussexes are said to be eyeing up a sprawling six-bedroom home near LA’s wealthy neighborhood of Pacific Palisades and are planning to have Meghan’s mom Doria move in with them and baby Archie.
‘Once quarantine and lockdown are over, Harry and Meghan will be moving into their new pad – and they want Doria to be included in these plans,’ a source told The Sun.
The source said Meghan wants to keep her mother, 63, close as she is ‘her rock’ and now ‘doesn’t trust many people’ outside of an immediate circle of family and friends.
