It’s Valentine's Day – and love is in the air.

For top photographer Misan Harriman, that meant celebrating a magical moment between his good friends Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – their baby announcement.

Misan took to Twitter writing: "Two years ago today, I helped my friends announce some wonderful news." He added a love heart emoji and the hashtag #happyvalentinesday.

Accompanying the post were two black and white photos that Misan took for the couple's big baby reveal. It was on Valentine's Day in 2021 that Harry and Meghan announced they were expecting their second baby. Coincidentally, it was on Valentine's Day in 1984 that Princess Diana announced her pregnancy with Harry.

The couple's daughter Lilibet Diana was born on 4 June that same year.

Fans loved seeing the snapshots again, with one telling Misan: "These are such beautiful photos of a happy family. Love them." A second shared: "This day was just joyful… after the miscarriage and all the heartache this was a really gold at the end of the rainbow."

Speaking later about the 2021 pregnancy photographs, Misan commented: "With the tree of life behind them and the garden representing fertility, life and moving forward, they didn’t need any direction, because they are, and always have been, waltzing through life together as absolute soulmates.

"To be asked to help share this absolute joy after such an unimaginable loss and heartache is a marker of true friendship," he added, referencing Meghan's sad miscarriage which she bravely later wrote about.

Talking to Vogue, Misan said: "Meg reminded me that had I not introduced her to a mutual friend then she wouldn’t have met Harry. I’m grateful for whatever small part I played."
