The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made sure their royal fans were treated to a lovely thank you card following the messages they received in honour of their first wedding anniversary. The royal couple, who tied the knot in Windsor on 19 May 2018, used a gorgeous picture - which was shared on royal fan account Gert's Royals - from their wedding day. The photo itself saw the happy couple pose on the steps outside St. George's chapel after their ceremony. "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were so touched that you wrote on the occasion of their first Wedding Anniversary," the message in the card read. "It was incredibly kind of you, and Their Royal Highnesses send you their warmest thanks and best wishes."

On their first-year anniversary, Prince Harry and Meghan shared some never-before-seen photos from their wedding on their official Instagram account, Sussex Royal. The pictures were part of a video montage, and included one of Meghan and her mum Doria, Harry waiting on the morning of his wedding day, and a lovely image of Meghan and Harry and their young bridal party, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The accompanying music to the video was This Little Light of Mine, which was chosen by the royal couple.
