    About Photographer Mark Stewart:

    British photojournalist Mark A. C. Stewart has photographed Kate, now the Duchess of Cambridge, since 2005, chronicling her transformation from a casually dressed young lady into an international style setter. 
    Throughout Mark's extensive career he has photographed the lives of Royal Family members, including the late Diana Princess of Wales, Her Majesty The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, as well as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Now he is photographing the next generation of royals; Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Mark has traveled with the Cambridges on all of their overseas tours, including the 2012 Jubilee Tour, as well as 2014's historic New Zealand/Australia tour, Prince George's first overseas tour. 
    Mark is also photographing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (formerly Meghan Markle). Mark says "The Duchess of Sussex has certainly hit the ground running in her first year since getting engaged to Prince Harry. She is professional, caring and engaging with everyone she meets." 
    Mark's knowledge of the Royal Family's unique history, traditions and personalities offer context for his photographs. His pictures have consistently graced the covers of newspapers & magazines around the world. Mark is the recipient of many major photographic press awards, including Royal Photographer of the Year: The Picture Editors' Guild Awards 2013.
