Don’t Have Warm Christmas Fuzzies Yet? Take A Look At Prince Harry And Meghan Markle’s Engagement Photos And Feel The Love

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have released their official engagement photos and they’re as stunning as you want them to be.

The pictures were taken by celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski – a former assistant to Vogue favourite Mario Testino – earlier this week and are akin to a classic Ralph Lauren or Burberry campaign. It’s all VERY British, but incredibly beautiful.

A huge thank you to His Royal Highness Prince Harry and Ms Markle, for allowing me to take their official engagement portraits. Not only was it an incredible honour, but also an immense privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for each other.  I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took. @Kensingtonroyal

Harry is fifth in line to the throne and has been dating 36-year-old Markle since the summer of 2016. The actress opened up about their relationship to Vanity Fair just recently, saying that they were in love, happy and enjoying their time together after just over a year of dating.

“We’re a couple. We’re in love,” she said of the year-long romance. “I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time.”

No, YOU’RE crying. The couple is due to wed Saturday, May 19th and we suspect our invites are in the post.
