The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex released the images, with a “thank you” to everyone that took part in celebrating their special day. The three photographs, taken by photographer Alex Lubomirksi, include one image of the happy newlyweds and two images of them together with members of the British Royal Family. The #RoyalWedding was a truly joyous occasion.
The first picture released depicts the couple with members of the Royal household in the Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle following the carriage procession. Amongst Harry and Meghan are Prince Phillip, Duke of Cambridge and Harry’s older brother, who acted as best man, Harry’s father, Prince Charles, and of course the Queen. The picture also features Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, who was the only close family member to attend the event.
The second picture displays the proud Duke and Duchess surrounded by the young bridesmaids and page boys who assisted them in Saturday’s ceremony. You can see Princess Charlotte at the bottom left of the photograph, with Prince George smiling beside Meghan.
The final photograph released shows the couple smiling together as they sit beside each other on the stone steps of the east terrace of Windsor Castle. The two are both beaming with happiness as Harry has his arm draped lovingly around his wife and she rests her arm on his knee.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday. They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the UK, Commonwealth, and around the world #RoyalWedding
