Today, (December 21, 2017) Kensington Palace released two official photographs of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle from their formal engagement shoot. Shortly afterwards “as a way to say thank you” The Palace released one candid photo. The photographs were taken in Windsor, on the grounds of Frogmore House, an area the couple has previously stated as ‘a very special’ for the two of them. The photos were taken by fashion and celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski who 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 at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together.” You can now view the photos in the gallery. Enjoy!
Photoshoots & Official Portraits > Official Portraits > Official Engagement Photos – December 2017
Every year, on the Wednesday before Christmas, the Queen holds a pre-Christmas lunch at the palace, and it’s one of the more entertaining of the traditional royal events because, instead of seeing posed photos from inside the event, we only get a bunch of paparazzi shots of the various royals in their cars making their way into the palace. It’s sort of like the royal version of those photos taken of people as they careen down the track on an amusement park ride.
And this year’s photos are even more notable than they have been other years, as the event was attended by Meghan Markle. Markle, who is set to marry Prince Harry in May, presumably met many of the extended-family royals for the first time today, as more than 50 royals lunched with the Queen.
Markle wore a “high-necked lace dress” from the label Self-Portrait. She accompanied the look with some diamond drop earrings.
