On Thursday morning, Kensington Palace released Harry and Markle's engagement photos, and they are every bit as gorgeous as you might imagine.

Harry and Meghan's photos were taken by fashion and celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski earlier this week at the house in Windsor.

Prince Harry and Markle also shared a candid photo.

Lubomirski, who has previously worked with photographer Mario Testino, a favourite of Prince William and Princess Diana, described taking the pictures in Berkshire this week as "an incredible honour". A second black and white picture shows the couple cozying up together, smiling while Harry wrapped his bride-to-be inside his jacket. They are all smiles as the "Horrible Bosses" star holds the arm of her prince charming and locks her fingers in his.

The photos have already received widespread acclaim, with the official Kensington Palace Twitter account releasing a third candid image of the couple to say thanks, adding that the couple was "so grateful for the warm and generous messages".




But those thinking that her formal introduction into the royal family's festive proceedings was all eggnog and carols should perhaps look towards Princess Michael of Kent.

The release of the pictures comes after Meghan spent the day with Harry and members of the royal family at Queen Elizabeth II's annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

We gathered the photos for a slideshow, but since we got a scant three pics we chose to add a few shots from the day Prince Harry and Markle announced their engagement on November 27.

But they also released another portrait that showed them locked in a loving embrace, wearing matching blue oxfords. The couple will marry at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19.
