Boston-based RR Auction will feature the 12 photos in a live auction on September 24 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

"These candid never-before-seen photos capture precious informal moments of the royal family," Bobby Livingston, executive VP at RR Auction, told BuzzFeed Life.

According to a press release from RR Auction, Lichfield's "peerage descent allowed him unparalleled access to the royal family."

In a letter that accompanies the photos, Lichfield's assistant wrote that they were assigned by the royal couple to take photos of the family and their guests in between the ceremony and the reception.

"These are photographs that were not used in the family album that Lord Lichfield presented to Prince Charles and Princess Diana to commemorate the day of their wedding," he wrote.

"The royal wedding was seen by an estimated 750 million viewers on television; it's something that most of us baby boomers can relate to," Livingston said.
