Apart from being a fabulous photographer this success is largely due to the privilege presented him by Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Charles, Lady Diana Spencer and more recently Prince William and Kate. Kent has a truly unique collection of photography spanning more than 30 years. From some of the most iconic images of Diana through to William and Kate’s wedding he has covered the Royals at their most formal and informal.
