"Having photographed Prince Harry for so many years as a solo royal, it's been great to capture him with the duchess, two people who clearly share similar passions and are so relaxed and happy together," Jackson said. "I actually took my favorite photograph of the pair during a visit to Sussex [Wednesday] — a lovely interaction as they held hands and burst into laughter during a visit to a youth project."

The photo in question was taken at the Joff Youth Centre in Peacehaven, Sussex on October 3 and Jackson is right — it is an amazing picture of the couple.

Jackson also shared some other insights about the royals during his interview with Insider. Here are some highlights:
