Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Engagement Photos Are Here And We're Swooning

Looking completely in love, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shared their official engagement photos taken earlier this week and they are absolutely stunning.

When Prince William and Kate Middleton got engaged in December 2010, they released two official photos to mark the occasion.

Second in line to the throne, the future king and his bride-to-be looked stunning with a well-composed smile. Their formal shots were taken at the historic Council Chamber linked to Clarence House, which is the official residence of William's father, Prince Charles.

William had selected fashion photographer Mario Testino for the job, and during the two-hour photo shoot they captured both formal and a more relaxed appearance of the couple. Their dressed-down look was captured in the Cornwall Room of St. James's Palace.

Following in his big brother's footsteps, Harry has released two official snaps, one glamorous and one relaxed to mark their engagement, and we just can't contain ourselves!

Harry and Meghan started dating just over a year ago after meeting in Toronto, Canada where the Suits actress lived and worked. The prince was in town to promote the Invictus Games and the pair hit it off quickly.

"We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception," the actress told Vanity Fair.

The lovebirds made their official debut as a couple during this year's Invictus Games, and two months later we were hearing wedding bells!

The pair made their first appearance together as a newly engaged couple in November, and we couldn't help but fall more in love with them.

After their first official interview together we could see the love in their eyes.

"I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly... All the stars were aligned - everything was just perfect. It was this beautiful woman just sort of literally tripped and fell into my life - I fell into her life," Harry said.

That's why when Kensington Palace released their engagement photos, we couldn't help but get excited to see the happy couple again!

The photos taken by Alexi Lubomirski, a fashion photographer and author, just capture the moment perfectly.

"A huge thank you to His Royal Highness Prince Harry and Ms Markle, for allowing me to take their official engagement portraits. Not only was it an incredible honour, but also an immense privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for each other.  I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took. @Kensingtonroyal," he wrote on Instagram.

The photos were taken at Frogmore House in Windsor earlier this week and include a formal shot as well as a more casual snap of the couple.

The royal couple is set to wed at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018.

Congratulations to the happy pair!
