Best Candid Photos of Royals in 2022, According to Photographers

Shutterstock royal photographer Tim Rooke accompanied Prince William and Kate Middleton on their Caribbean tour in March, where he photographed them greeting locals in Jamaica.

Rooke said members of the royal family are often “much more relaxed” on royal tours.

“During the visit, the couple were keen to get to know the locals and spent time immersing themselves in the crowd,” he said. “The Duke and Duchess, as well as the rest of the royal family, are often seen throwing themselves into situations like this to ensure each person feels noticed and special.”

Getty Images photographer Samir Hussein took this candid photo of Kate sampling local cuisine during a visit to Abaco, Bahamas.

Hussein said this photo was considered unusual by royal standards, as Kate Middleton showed her “adventurous side” by sampling dishes at a food stall during her royal tour of the Caribbean in March.

This photo of Prince William and Kate in the rain during their royal tour of the Caribbean is another of Hussein’s favorites.

“The tropical rain in the Bahamas helped produce this touching moment when the Prince and Princess of Wales arrived with umbrellas in an attempt to stay dry,” Hussein said.

“It’s a fun, unique moment where the elements create a good photo against the odds,” he added.

Rooke snapped a candid shot of Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, during their Caribbean visit in April.

Edward and Sophie, who Rooke called a “vivacious duo”, visited the Caribbean shortly after William and Kate. Rooke’s photo shows the moment Sophie blew a foghorn as Edward covered his ears in the background.

“This image almost looks posted, but it’s completely natural and quite hilarious!” he said.

Rooke snapped a photo of Queen Elizabeth II smiling at the Royal Windsor Horse Show in May.

Rooke said the Queen always looked “relaxed, happy and enjoying herself” in the presence of horses, which “radiated on her face” at engagements such as the Royal Horse Show.

Hussein took this photo of Princess Charlotte, 7, showing her brother Prince George, 9, a flower during a visit to Wales.

Hussein said he took the photo during a royal visit to Cardiff Castle during the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations on June 4.

“Princess Charlotte received a single flower from a member of the public and immediately walked over to her older brother Prince George with a big smile to show him,” Hussein said.

Rooke captured a candid moment between Prince Louis and his grandparents at the Platinum Jubilee Pageant in June.

Rooke said the photo shows Louis “displaying the evil of the evil that we often get from the children of the family.”

In August, Rooke photographed Charlotte giving William and Kate a thumbs up at the Commonwealth Games.

The Commonwealth Games was Charlotte’s first solo royal engagement with her parents.

“Charlotte seemed to really enjoy her experience at the Commonwealth Games and clearly got her passion for sport from her parents,” said Rooke.
