Ahh, it all makes sense now!

On Sunday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex celebrated their first wedding anniversary by releasing some unseen photos from their special day. The royal couple posted the images as part of a video montage on their newly-opened Instagram account. Not only was it lovely for royal fans to see the behind-the-scenes pictures, but one snapshot even helped to solve a year-long mystery surrounding Meghan's flowers. When the Duchess entered St George's Chapel, she was handed her bouquet by a female guest, and the televised footage made it difficult to work out exactly who the guest was. Twitter fans had suggested that it could have been the Duchess of Cambridge, or the Queen's assistant private secretary Samantha Cohen. However, the new clearer photo from the big day revealed the woman to be Prince Harry's assistant Clare Madden.

Other photos released on Sunday by Harry and Meghan included one of the bride and her mum Doria Ragland, an image of Harry and William walking up the stairs, and a sweet image of Meghan and Harry with their young bridal party, including nephew and niece Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The accompanying music to the video was This Little Light of Mine, which was chosen by the royal couple. The post read: "Happy one year anniversary to Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! Today marks the one year anniversary of the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Their Royal Highnesses exchanged vows at St George's Chapel within the grounds of Windsor Castle on May 19th, 2018.
