The newest royal couple has just released some positively romantic engagement pictures just in time for Christmas.
The pictures are stunning and such a glowing reminder of what a great couple these two are and how their love seems to be incredibly obvious and infectious. Kensington Palace announced via a statement on the morning of Thursday, December 21 that the couple had decided to mark their engagement with a couple of sweet photos just in time for the holiday.
Since the announcement of their engagement last month, the two haven’t been seen together publically but were spotted leaving the Queen’s annual Christmas lunch just a day before these engagement pictures were released.
The photographs were shot by Alexi Lubomirski, a fashion photographer who was overjoyed to get the opportunity to capture the spark and love between the engaged couple. Unlike many past engagement pictures that have come from royal engagements, there is an obvious show of affection and physical contact that exists between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
In the first picture, the two are sitting on outdoor steps as Markle leans into her fiance and the two lovingly hold hands. Both have a look of happy contentment on their faces.
While Prince Harry wears a more classic and understated blue suit, the former Suits actress is wearing a gorgeous ruffled black gown with lovely sheer detailing which is a complete departure from many of the stuffy suits and conservative style choices that are typically made by the women in the royal family.
It appears Markle is a huge departure and change in a number of different ways. One of which is that she’s the first biracial woman to be married into the British royal family. She shows off her specially crafted diamond ring in all the photos, two of the diamonds in her ring are from Prince Harry’s late mother Princess Diana.
In the second photo, the two lovebirds look absolutely blissful in their love as they lean into one another and embrace, both beaming with huge smiles. The two will be married on May 19th, 2018 which will surely be an extravagant and highly watched nupital ceremony.
