    There have been thousands of pictures from this weekend’s Royal wedding, from Meghan Markle’s wedding dress to Prince George and Princess Charlotte looking adorable – but one picture in particular was so unique that it completely went viral.

    Yep, we’re referring to that aerial shot of Harry and Meghan in their carriage begin the procession around Windsor, and we’ve lost count of the amount of times we’ve spotted it on social media.

    It was popular for many reasons: it provided an intimate portrait of the newlyweds, and as they hold hands it looks like they are shaping a heart.

    Plus, it gives a different view of that stunning Givenchy wedding dress, with delicate off-the-shoulder neckline.

    The snap was taken by Yui Mok, a staff photographer for Press Association, and he took to Twitter to reveal how he got that winning shot – and before you ask, it wasn’t a drone.

    ‘I was positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle, and they passed directly beneath me during their carriage procession,’ he said.

    ‘I had less than a one-second window to take that particular shot – whilst having to focus through a metal grill I was standing over – so was happy to get anything really!’

    Hands down the standout shot from the Royal wedding, and that’s saying something.
