This is why you'll never see a clear photo of Meghan Markle

The reason is actually quite cute

It's only a day before the Royal wedding, and if you're not one of the lucky 1,200 guests invited (including Meghan's Hollywood guests), then you'll no doubt be refreshing Twitter every 5 seconds for the first glimpse of the bride.

But it turns out that Meghan is one tricky Royal to photograph, and the reason behind it is really quite adorable.

According to Shutterstock's Royal photographer Tim Rooke, it's really because she's very much in love with Prince Harry.

He told InStyle US, Ms. Markle and Prince Harry are very much in love, in fact, it’s hard for me to capture a picture of them each alone because they always either locked in each other's gazes or joined hands'.

'We like to get fashion shots of what she’s wearing on these occasions, but they are often hard to get because she’s always holding Harry’s hand, making it difficult to get the full fashion shot without cropping out her arm,' he added.

And in case you're still in any doubt about how loved up Harry and Meghan are, Rooke can confirm he's never seen anything like it where the Royals are concerned.

'I haven’t had a lot of opportunity to photograph Meghan yet. I’ve mostly only been able to capture her on big event pieces. That being said, I've not seen this much affection between two royals in my decades of shooting,' he said.

Here's hoping he gets a clear shot of the wedding dress though.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
