Prince Harry is ‘unpredictable’ and ‘always been special’, says royal snapper

A royal photographer has said that Prince Harry is 'unpredictable' and 'always special' during an interview revealing the behind-the-scenes antics of the Royal Family.

Chris Jackson had inside access to royal life as a royal photographer at Getty Images for nearly two decades.

His career has led to him following Harry and Meghan Markle on their tour of Australia, taking an official portrait of the Queen, and capturing Prince William as he took Prince George to his first day of school.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Jackson discussed the 'in-depth knowledge of royal personalities' he built up during those years.

Jackson became particularly close with Harry and will be photographing his efforts at the upcoming Invictus Games in the Netherlands in April next year.

He said: "Harry has a real energy to his engagements.

"[He brings] an element of unpredictability which has always been special.

"One example of that was when he joined in a charity run in Rio de Janeiro and he ended up finishing the race with a face mask on. You literally couldn't have predicted that."

Jackson also noted how the royals all treat their various engagements differently, particularly the Queen and her son Charles.

He continued: "The Prince of Wales is very interactive with people and expressive. The Queen moves about engagements in a different way to the Prince of Wales.

The job of a royal photographer is all about predicting what is going to happen, according to Jackson, picking shots and positioning oneself based on where the royals are going and who they are about to meet.

He is married to Natasha Archer, Kate Middleton's assistant, and stylist, giving him an even greater understanding of royal business.

The couple also have a son, Theo, who at two-years-old is similarly aged to some of the royal kids Jackson has photographed.

He said: "[Those assignments] always makes you smile behind the camera, and I love that.

"There is a real energy to the engagement, which is great fun.

"It is a less regular event, but equally that's what makes it so special."

It's been a year like no other for the Queen from the loss of her husband to heartache over Prince Harry.
