And they are stunning.
Meghan walked the aisle in a stunning bridal gown by British designer, Clare Waight Keller, the artistic director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy, but it wasn’t her dress that got the internet talking. Nor was it the long list of A-list royal wedding guests – we’re talking Victoria Beckham, Amal Clooney, Serena Williams and Oprah, to name a few.
The wedding instead been made news for being one of the most touching and seriously stunning in royal history, from the congregation laughing after Harry’s loud ‘I Do’ to the tiny bridesmaids and page boys tottering down the aisle behind Meghan Markle holding hands with each other.
The royal wedding reception held by the Queen was also a success, from the on-trend food bowls and surprise Elton John concert to Meghan’s wedding speech - a watershed moment for royal women. And the royal wedding after party sounded even better, from apache shooters and an ice luge to special ‘When Harry Met Meghan’ cocktails and one hell of a fire work display.
Basically, the whole day was incredible, and now that it's over, there has been one question on everyone's lips: when are the official wedding photos coming out?
Well today is that day, with Kensington Royal’s Instagram account releasing three official photos from the day.
‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day,’ the first image was captioned. ‘This photograph was taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski in The Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle, following the carriage procession #RoyalWedding.’
Official royal photo number two was captioned, 'This photo of The Duke and Duchess with the Bridesmaids and Page Boys was taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski in The Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle #RoyalWedding.’
‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday,’ they captioned the final photo. ‘They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the UK, Commonwealth, and around the world #RoyalWedding.’
Well that has made our day.
