Days after the Royal Wedding between the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex at Windsor Castle, Kensington Palace released the official photos of their wedding – and they’re truly lovely.
The photos were taken by celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski, who was also the mastermind behind the couple’s engagement photos in December.
The first of the photos features the Duke and Duchess alongside their bridesmaids and page boys, many of whom are related to the happy nuptials as godchildren.
News outlets were quick to note that the couch on which Prince Harry is seated is the same emerald green couch used by his late mother, Princess Diana, during his christening in 1984. Additionally, the flower bouquet in the Duchess’s hands is made up of forget-me-nots, which were one of Princess Diana’s favorite flowers.
Though the bouquet was sent to rest on the Grave of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey, the rest of the flowers used for the wedding ceremony were donated to hospice patients in London.
The second photo depicts just the happy couple sitting on the steps of the castle’s East Terrace.
“Their Royal Highnesses are delighted with these official portraits,” said a statement from the Palace.
Finally, Lubomirski shot a photo of the entire Royal Family, along with the Duchess’s mother, who was the only member of her family to attend the wedding.
According to the Windsor city council, over 110,000 well-wishers filled the streets to show their love to the noble family, 67,000 train trips were made in and out of the two city train stations, and over 11 million people tuned in to watch the wedding’s coverage.
Lubomirski also added that it had been an “incredible honor” to document the couple’s “inspiring journey of love.”
“This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget,” he said, according to the BBC.
