I’ve spent much of the last year documenting some intimate and ‘behind the scenes’ moments with The Prince of Wales to celebrate his 70th Birthday – It really has been an incredible priviledge to create such a unique set of images and a huge amount of fun at the same time. Huge thanks to everyone at @clarencehouse all their help, as ever the amazing team at @gettyimages and of course @royanikkhah and the team at the @thestmagazine !
