Royal Wedding 2018: The Official Portraits are Here!

Meghan Markle didn’t merely marry Prince Harry this past Saturday.

She married into Prince Harry’s famous and very wealthy family.

And this development has now been driven home via the release of the official Royal Portraits from Kensington Palace.

Snapped in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle after Meghan and Harry magical carriage procession through London, the picture were shot by fashion photographer, Alexi Lubomirski.

This is the same artist who took the couple’s memorable engagement photos at Frogmore House in Windsor late last year.

The first image (above) is a truly epic gathering of the entire royal family (minus four-week-old Prince Louis, who stayed home at the palace because… come on, he’s four weeks old).

Include in this snapshot is the little bridal party and Meghan’s proud mother, Doria Ragland.

(As you’ve likely read about by now, Meghan’s father, Thomas, suffered a heart attack last week and then underwent a heart procedure. He was unable to make the trip.)

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day,” opens the Kensington Palace Twitter caption alongside this photo, adding:

“These photographs were taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski at Windsor Castle, following the carriage procession. #RoyalWedding.”

Also featured in the photo set is a picture of just Harry and Meghan with their adorable page boys and bridesmaids.

And it’s beyond precious…

Led by Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eight other children include several of Harry and Meghan’s godchildren and children of their friends.

They are:

Florence van Cutsem, 3; Remi Litt, 6 and her sister Rylan, 7; Ivy Mulroney, 4; Zalie Warren, 2; Jasper Dyer, 6; and twins Brian and John Mulroney, 7.

“The duke and duchess would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said in a statement on Monday.

“They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and those who watched on television across the U.K., Commonwealth and around the world.”

Finally, this three-photo release concludes with a romantic snapshot of the brand new bride and groom, looking as happy as two people can be:

Meghan and Harry’s wedding came six months after the couple announced their engagement to the world.

It went off without a hitch, but with plenty of memorable moments.

Markle, for example, paid tribute to Princess Diana by wearing something blue.

She also stunned and inadvertedly seduced millions of people around the world by changing into a sleek white dress for her evening reception.

Just… wow, right?

There was also the kiss outside the chapel and the rendition of “Stand By Me” that was sung right before Meghan and Harry exchanged vows.

The vows did not include the word “obey,” which many have taken as a subtle pro-feminism stance by Markle’s part.

We approve.

Check out the exchange below:

“It has been an incredible honor and privilege to document The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s inspiring journey of love, hope and family; from the engagement photos, all the way through to the official wedding and family portraits on Saturday,” Lubomirski said in a statement, concluding:

“This has been a beautiful chapter in my career and life, that I will happily never forget.”

The same goes for all who witnessed this blessed event.

Meghan Markle’s Dumb Dad Wishes He’d Gone to the Royal Wedding

If you’ve been anywhere near an internet-enabled device in the past 72 hours, then you’re no doubt aware that Prince Harry married Meghan Markle in a unique ceremony at Windsor Castle in London.

Harry and Meghan’s nuptials were different from previous royal weddings in a number of important ways.

Most were cool and interesting, others … well, not so much.

For example, the ceremony incorporated elements of African-American culture in order to honor Meghan’s ethnicity and nationality.

That was inarguably awesome.

In the other column, you’ll find the almost unbelievably messy drama surrounding Meghan’s family.

While it certainly helped set this wedding apart from its predecessors, we’re guessing Harry and Meghan would have been happy to skip over the soap opera BS delivered by her father and her half-siblings.

Meghan’s half-brother and half-sister talked a bunch of trash, but that came as no surprise, as those two revealed themselves to be bestselling items at the jerk store several months ago.

Much more unexpected was the last-minute turmoil involving Meghan’s father.

Thomas Markle skipped the royal wedding, bowing out just days before the ceremony for reasons that still aren’t totally clear.

At first, there were reports that Meghan’s dad had suffered a heart attack.

Now, however, it doesn’t that that was the case.

The more likely explanation seems to be that Thomas was humiliated by the revelation that he’d agreed to be photographed by paparazzi in exchange for a fee.

That’s not to say Thomas is without health issues, but it seems that his reasons for skipping the wedding were more varied and complex than initially reported.

Weirdly, Thomas was in regular communication with TMZ throughout the build-up to the wedding, and he spoke to the site on Saturday after Meghan and Harry exchanged vows.

“My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy,” he said.

“I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness.”

Thomas added that watching the wedding on television was both “emotional and joyful.”

We may never know exactly what prompted Thomas to stay home instead of participating in this once-in-a-lifetime event, but remarkably, it seems he and Meghan have remained on good terms.

But perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised by that – something tells us Meghan has lots of experience forgiving her father.
