On Thursday, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle blessed royal fans the world over with a few truly stunning photographs from their engagement photo session.
Shot by fashion and royal photographer Alexi Lubomirski, the photos show the couple in a truly unique, and heartwarming, light.
In the first photo, shared by Kensington Palace on both Instagram and Twitter, Meghan can be seen leaning into her future husband, while wearing a stunning black ball gown straight from the Fall 2017 couture runway of Ralph Russo. The dress came complete with a full-length tulle skirt and beaded sheer bodice, though it appears Meghan added a lining to the top.
Harry looked equally dapper in a dark blue tailored suit. In the caption of the post Kensington wrote, “Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen to release this official portrait photograph to mark their engagement.”
In the second image, the couple looked far more relaxed as they nuzzle into one another. Meghan does a truly expert job in the photograph of showing off her gorgeous engagement ring. And in case you forgot the ring’s details, it comes complete with three diamonds including two smaller side stones, both of which come from Princess Diana’s personal collection, as well as a center stone Harry himself sourced from Botswana.
Again, in the caption Kensington simply wrote, “Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen to release this official portrait photograph to mark their engagement.”
While royal fans would be psyched to see just these two images Prince Harry and Meghan decided to do us all a favor and release one more candid image from the shoot as a “thank you” for all the “wonderful comments” following their first two posts.
In the third snap the couple can be seen strolling together hand-in-hand as they walk through the grounds of Windsor Castle, according to Daily Mail. And as Kensington revealed in the caption, the couple couldn’t be more pleased with both the photos and their fans’ reactions to them.
“The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives,” the palace wrote. “As a way to say thank you, they have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you.”
