Harry and Meghan pose

Prince Harry Meghan Markle

21, Kensington Palace released a sampling of the couple's official engagement portraits via Twitter. As per reports, the pictures were taken earlier this week at Frogmore House, in the grounds of Windsor Castle.

The pictures are by fashion and celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski.

Princess Michael-the wife of Prince Michael of Kent, the Queen's first cousin; she is referred to as the female version of her husband's name because she doesn't have her own title-raised more than a few eyebrows with her choice of jewellery for the event. Markle, 36, wears what Vogue identified as a Ralph & Russo dress, with a black sheer top decorated by embroidered leaf patterns.

The public finally has some up-close-and-personal, mushy and romantic Meghan Markle and Prince Harry photos to pore over. A second black and white picture shows the couple cozying up together, smiling while Harry wrapped his bride-to-be inside his jacket.

Additionally, the two couples went with different photographers.




In fact, The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton didn't attend the ceremonies back in 2010 when she was still Prince William's fiancé.

The engagement photos come one day after Meghan's first royal family traditional Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace. Perhaps it's fitting, as Markle is certainly not a cookie-cutter royal fiancee; she's American, mixed-race and divorced.

But they also released another portrait that showed them locked in a loving embrace, wearing matching blue oxfords.

"Not only was it an incredible honour, but also an vast privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple's love for each other", said Lubomirski of the shoot.

In 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge took their own engagement photos prior to their big day, and they look an terrible lot like Harry and Meghan's photos.
