The official engagement photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released by Kensington palace.

“As a way to say thank you, they have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you,” said the Kensington Palace release. “The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives.”

Fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski photographed the couple at Frogmore House in Windsor. Alexi is a fashion photographer and author of "PRINCELY ADVICE for a HAPPY LIFE" and "MENSAJES de un PRINCIPE" All $$$ of which go to the charity Concern Worldwide.

Alexi was born in England to a Peruvian/English mother and a Polish/French father. At the age of eight, he moved to Botswana with his mother and English stepfather. It was his stepfather who gave him his first camera at the age of 11. His serious interest in photography developed whilst traveling in Peru during a gap year at college. His interest later shifted from social commentary to narrative-based fashion photography whilst studying for his degree at the University of Brighton, in the UK.

"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 " Alexis wrote on his facebook page.

The couple will wed at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in May 2018.
