Alexi Lubomirski/AP/REX/ShutterstockPrince Harry and Meghan Markle are already known for putting tradition to the wayside, but there’s one custom we’re glad they stuck to: taking official wedding portraits with the royal family.
After the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot at St. George’s Chapel and took a carriage ride around Windsor, the newlyweds returned to the castle so photographer Alexi Lubomirski could take some charming snaps in the Green Drawing Room. Then they headed to enjoy the mouth-watering food served at the royal wedding reception.
The whole crew included Harry’s immediate family and his grandparents, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, plus Meghan’s mom, Doria Ragland. The little bridesmaids and pageboys got the chance to pose with the royal couple and even hammed it up in an adorable kids-only photo with the couple.
Prince George and Princess Charlotte were part of the bridal party, along with Harry’s godchildren Florence van Cutsem and Jasper Dyer, Markle’s godchildren Remi and Rylan Litt, and the kids of Meghan’s close friend, Ivy, Brian, and John Mulroney. They all seem excited to have witnessed the 11 ways Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding made history.
And that’s not all. The happy couple also lounged for a classic grayscale photo, radiating postnuptial bliss. You can bet this will be framed in their Nottingham Cottage home.
