Prince William wanted my photos of his wedding

The Sun's royal photographer Arthur Edwards reveals it was due to a request by Prince William that he was given a prime position opposite the balcony at Buckingham Palace on William and Kate's wedding day.

He also explains why Prince William had trouble driving up the Mall after the reception - he had forgotten to release the handbrake.

Arthur Edwards' interview with Kirsty Young on Desert Island Discs will be broadcast on Sunday 25 September at 1115 BST on BBC Radio 4, and repeated at 0900 BST on Friday 30 September. Listen online or browse the extensive Desert Island Discs archive.
