Kensington Palace shared the photo Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are using for their Christmas card this year, and it’s breathtaking. The shot is from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s May 19 wedding reception. Markle is wearing her stunning white Stella McCartney dress, her and Prince Harry’s backs turned to the camera as they watch a firework show. Is this an ad for a Disney movie or a Christmas card? I’m not sure, but either way I’m completely captivated.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May,” Kensington Palace shared on Instagram alongside the new pic. “The photograph, which was taken by photographer Chris Allerton, features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card this year.”
Take a look at the photo for yourself, below.
With everything Markle and Prince Harry have accomplished in 2018, it’s hard to believe this photo was only snapped a few months ago. Their royal wedding was followed by a busy, engagement-filled summer and fall. Markle went on her first solo outing with Queen Elizabeth II in June. Then, four months later, she and Prince Harry embarked on a royal tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga, and New Zealand. Right before this trip, Kensington Palace announced Markle and Prince Harry were expecting their first child.
“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019,” the palace posted to both Twitter and Instagram on Monday, October 15. “Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public.”
