Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released official photographs today to mark their engagement. These beautiful pictures were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski earlier this week at Frogmore House, Windsor. The couple will marry at Windsor Castle on May 19.
The Polish photographer who himself is a royal and styled His Serene Highness Prince Alexi Lubomirski said: "It was an incredible honour to be asked to document this wonderful event, but also a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for one another. I cannot help but smile when I look..."
Several hours after the first two were released, Kensington Palace released a third photo with the message:
“Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments following the release of Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle’s engagement photographs. The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives. 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.”

The piece is from their Autumn/Winter 2016/2017 collection and is described as a black tulle gown with silk organza skirt, hand appliquéd with silk tulle ruffles and embroidered with gold feather thread-work.
