Although Meghan Markle may have made an impromptu trip to the United States prior to her wedding to Prince Harry in May, that does not mean that planning and preparation for the big day have slowed down at all.

Alexi Lubomirski, 42, who photographed the pair for their engagement, will be at Windsor Castle next month to take the official wedding shots, Kensington Palace announced.

"I could not be more thrilled or honoured to photograph this historic occasion", he said.

He has also published two photography books, donating the proceeds to Concern Worldwide, a charity he supports as an Ambassador, the Palace said.

Lubomirski was born in England but moved to Botswana with his mother and stepfather when he was 8. Alexi Lubomirski also referred back to the engagement photographs he took past year, saying that having taken those pictures and now being able to witness the next chapter in their relationship is an honor and a joy for him. Currently, he lives in New York City. Revd. David Conner, will conduct the service with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, officiating as the couple make their vows. For their wedding cake, Harry and Meghan have enlisted Claire Ptak, the owner of London-based Violet Bakery, to create a lemon and elderflower cake.

According to his website, Lubomirski studied under Mario Testino, a Peruvian photographer who took the official engagement photographs of Prince William and fiance Kate Middleton in 2010, and has since become a recognized name in the fashion industry. Later that evening, the bride and groom will be joined by 200 guests at a more exclusive reception at Frogmore House, this time hosted by Prince Charles. The happy couple's first royal outing as man and wife will see them take a carriage ride through Windsor. Following the ceremony, guests will be invited to a lunchtime reception at St George's Hall, hosted by the Queen.
