"Harry leans in protectively to enable them to pose with their heads together in a way that would normally signal high levels of trust and like-minded thinking and the expression of love on his face suggests a man who still can't quite believe his luck in finding his ideal woman". Which is why their decision to recruit New York-based photographer Alexi Lubomirski to take their official engagement photographs is such a telling one.
"Not only was it an incredible honour [sic], but also an huge privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple's love for each other".
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".
The royal-to-be stole the show as she arrived with her future husband in a four-wheel drive - flashing her engagement ring while giving an elegant wave and smile to the crowds lining the streets.
Kensington palace has just released official photographs to mark Prince Harry's engagement to Meghan Markle. In one image, Meghan and Harry were photographed sitting on stairs while the Suits alum leaned against her fiancé's legs. It appears the prince has his jacket partly around Markle in this black and white shot, and they seem so cozy together. "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 chose to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you", Kensington Palace said in a statement. "As a way to say thank you, they have made a decision to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you".
From the gorgeous top with gold embellishment, to the flowing, textured tulle skirt, every inch of this dress is sheer perfection. Their snuggling was more polite; Markle is wrapped in Harry's coat, with her hand resting on his face.
