Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave their nearly 10 million Instagram followers a treat when they shared a never-before-seen photo from their royal wedding today. In the snapshot, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear to be outside of St. George’s Chapel, the church where they got married. They’re both in their wedding attire, she in her boat-necked Givenchy gown and Queen Mary’s bandeau tiara, while Harry’s in his military dress uniform. It looks like Harry had just made a joke because Meghan is doubled over with a big smile on her face as she holds her wedding bouquet.
The photo is the second in a series of images posted to the Sussex Royal Instagram account to celebrate the two year anniversary of Meghan and Harry’s engagement announcement. The first photo is one that was taken on November 27, 2018, at their first photocall after the news went public. In it, they’re smiling and holding hands, basking in the happiness of the day. The third is from their first photocall as parents with their baby, Archie, who Harry is holding as Meghan looks on.
The post has been liked over 225,000 times since it was posted and close to 2,500 people have commented on it. In those comments, fans shared their well-wishes for the couple.
“To a lifetime of love, peace, and joy,” one fan wrote.
