The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared a never-seen-before photograph from their wedding day on the Sussex Royal Instagram account, to mark two years since they announced their engagement. Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, shared the adorable black and white snap from their May 2018 nuptials, taken by photographer Chris Allerton. Harry grins as he stands in his frock coat uniform, while his wife Meghan is in fits of giggles, wearing her Clare Waight Keller wedding dress and Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara.

During their engagement interview, Harry spoke about how his relationship with former actress Meghan blossomed: "The fact that I fell in love with Meghan so incredibly quickly was sort of confirmation to me that 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.

He added: "The fact that she — I know the fact that she will be unbelievably good at the job part of it as well is obviously a huge relief to me because she will be able to deal with everything else that comes with it. We’re a fantastic team. We know we are. And we hope to, over time, try and have as much impact for the things that we care about as much as possible."

The couple tied the knot at St George's Chapel in Windsor on 19 May 2018 and just five months later, announced they were expecting their first child as they began their royal tour of Australia. 

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor was born on 6 May 2019 at the Portland Hospital in London. The Sussexes are currently on a six-week break from royal duties and are thought to be spending time with Meghan's mother Doria Ragland.
