Meghan Markle has more than a little experience with photographers. In her previous career as an actress, she regularly walked red carpets and attended photoshoots, in addition to her work on television and film sets.

But according to royal photographer Tim Rooke, whom Prince Harry fondly calls "Rookie," Markle has one habit that makes things difficult for the people trying to take her picture: she can't keep her hands off her fiancé.

"Quite often we like to get a fashion shot, just a full-length picture of whatever she’s wearing, but I’ve found that quite hard because she seems to be holding Prince Harry’s hand the whole time," Rooke tells Town & Country.

"It's very sweet," he says, "but it makes it quite difficult to get the pictures I want."

There you have it: the only person who isn't such a fan of the happy couple's hand-holding.

Rooke, who has been working for Rex by Shutterstock for over two decades, started his career photographing Princess Diana in the 1990s. In 2011, he captured the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they excited Westminster Abbey, arm in arm, and come May 19, he'll be in Windsor for Meghan and Harry's big day. Perhaps that's one day he'll be glad to see a little PDA.
