Royal photographer Mark Stewart has been taking award-winning pictures of the Queen and her family for newspapers and magazines around the world for more than 25 years.
The high standard of his work has been recognised with prestigious accolades such as Picture Editors’ Awards Royal Photographer of the Year 2004 and 2013, and first prize in the Press Photographer’s Year Royalty Section 2007, 2009 and 2010.
Mark has also been rewarded with private commissions from Buckingham Palace and is a regular commentator on royal events for international TV, radio and magazines.
As one of the first photographers to realise the importance of Kate Middleton in Prince William’s life, he has an unrivalled early archive of images of the future queen. This records her transformation from home counties girl to royal Duchess, including an exclusive collection of Kate at weddings and society events.
Well-known in palace circles, Mark was accredited to cover Kate and William’s engagement, wedding and their two recent overseas tours of Canada and California and Asia and the South Pacific. He has covered all the major events, both at home and abroad, in William and Kate’s romance from the early days to their wedding and life as a married couple ever since.
Earlier in his career Mark toured the world with Diana, Princess of Wales, and worked as personal photographer to Sarah, Duchess of York, accompanying her on charity trips to countries as far and wide as Argentina, Russia, and Liberia. He was also commissioned to take the official 18th birthday photographs of Princess Beatrice at her Windsor Castle birthday ball and produce a private record of that glittering event.
Other important highlights of Mark’s long career include photographing the Queen’s meeting with Pope John Paul II at the Vatican and extensive coverage of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee. He was one of the few privileged photographers invited to the Buckingham Palace media reception hosted by the Queen with the senior members of the royal family.
Together with his extensive royal library, Mark has an unrivalled collection of images of those closest to the royals; their friends, confidants and courtiers .
