Meghan Markle and Prince Harry release official engagement photos


Britain's Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle have posed for a series of stunning new portraits to mark their recent engagement.

The 33-year-old fifth in line to the British throne is seen hand-in-hand with the 36-year-old American actress on the grounds of Frogmore House in Windsor in photographs taken by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski earlier this week.

Lubomirski said in a statement: "I can not help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together".

In the photo above, Markle is wearing a long-sleeve Ralph & Russo gown with a bodice embroidered with gilded feathers. They will be married on May 19 at Windsor Castle's St. George's Chapel in a highly-anticipated royal wedding.

Kensington Palace on Thursday released the couple's engagement photos, and royal watchers went bananas. Her groom looked dapper in a blue suit.

Markle, alongside Prince Harry, were accompanied by more than 50 royal family members on Wednesday, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall and Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace. Harry and Markle hired photographer Alexi Lubomirksi.

How do these compare to past royal engagement photos?

Just two hours after the initial release of the pair of engagement photos, Kensington Palace released an additional candid photo from the engagement shoot while thanking the public "for all of the wonderful comments". "The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives".

And as a thank you for all the well wishes, the couple even shared a candid photograph from the same day. Testino photographed William and Kate for their engagement photos in 2010.

From the gorgeous top with gold embellishment, to the flowing, textured tulle skirt, every inch of this dress is sheer perfection.

The couple also chose to use a different photographer.
