There are a few royal moments in history we wish we could have been a part of. Princess Diana and Prince Charles’s wedding and Prince William’s christening are two on that list. Luckily, we recently spoke with royal photographer, Kent Gavin, who witnessed both events first-hand.
PureWow recently sat down with Gavin ahead of the release of BritBox’s, new film, The Wedding of the Century, which documents the Princess of Wales’s wedding back in 1981 and features interviews with key insiders involved in the historical event.
During the chat, Gavin opened up about being hand-selected by Charles and Diana to photograph the christening of their first child, Prince William.
“At that time I had been quite present in Diana's life,” Gavin revealed. “But when I found out that I was picked, I was on holiday. I got a call saying ‘You won't believe this but Charles and Diana have chosen you to do the christening,’ and I was chuffed. And it was from there on I built a great relationship with her over the years.”
