One lucky Charles and Diana fan could soon be the owner of some rare photographs, as behind-the-scenes shots of their wedding day are set to go up for auction next month.

Twelve images, including seven black and white and five colour prints, are up for grabs, capturing moments from the couple’s wedding reception at Buckingham Palace, on 29 July 1981.

Taken by Lord Patrick Lichfield – the only photographer allowed to take informal pictures of the royal family on their big day – the photographs were passed down to an assistant, later making their way to auction.

The sale is set to take place in Boston, Massachusetts, in September.
