Beautiful! Georges's big smile. Adorable.

jacqui24 05-21-2018 10:05 AM

A little disappointed there isn't a better picture of the dress and veil outside on the greens. :lol: But I do like them, particularly of the one with just the couple. Meghan's hair makes a lot more sense now.

Rossina 05-21-2018 10:06 AM

Absolutely stunning photos! Congratulations to the happy couple & their families.

Curbside 05-21-2018 10:06 AM

Beautiful photos!

ACO 05-21-2018 10:12 AM

I do hope they release one of Harry and Meghan standing what shows off her dress and veil. But otherwise, I love them. Love the kids being cheeky and cute.

What a historic picture for so many reasons.

W.Y.CII 05-21-2018 10:12 AM

Oh no they chop out the veil...okay that's the only thing I dislike.

I love that Doria stands that close to Meghan in the family photo. And the bridesmaids and page boys one, is very sweet. These kids are relaxed and happy, and I like George's big smile. The b&w one is romantic, I love that they pose similarly to their engagement photo, it's like a before & after if putting these two side by side :lol:.

Osipi 05-21-2018 10:16 AM

Also very happy to be able to scroll down and see that Meghan's bouquet has been place on the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior in Westminster Abbey. Another British tradition that was not broken.

AlowVera 05-21-2018 10:17 AM

The pictures are amazing! They have an air of relaxed formality and exude happiness! Also George and his toothy smile! I hope they release a more formal color pic of just Harry and Meghan alone.

Pranter 05-21-2018 10:21 AM

LOVE the pics! Love the room they chose...the only thing I wish was that Camilla had worn cream or mint or some sort of pale green.


LaRae

The kids are such a hoot! George sure doesn't come across shy in these pics!



LaRae

Curryong 05-21-2018 10:23 AM

I love these! Everyone, including the littlies, appears relaxed and happy. I'm sure there are more to come.

Yes! Finally we know that both Doria and the Queen aren't randomly pick green. Probably the ladies got a memo that where the photographs will be taken and Camilla just missed it.

Fem 05-21-2018 10:35 AM

I didn't even notice it during the ceremony, but the page boys' outfits should have at least some colour in them. They look like big black spots on pictures.

But the children look really, really happy and Charlotte steals the show for me on the second one.

DuchessMia 05-21-2018 10:40 AM

Gorgeous pictures! George is adorable with his tooth grin. All the kids are adorable. The Litt girls are beautiful. Harry & Meghan are...lovely. Their happiness and love shine through. I hope there’s a photo of Meghan with Doria and one of the bridal couple with her alone.

TLLK 05-21-2018 10:41 AM

Beautiful photos of the wedding party and the couple themselves!

Nico 05-21-2018 10:42 AM

They do look really nice !

Terri Terri 05-21-2018 10:42 AM

Absolutely fantastic photos!!!! But I am greedy!! I wanted a photo with Harry and Meghan alone with full view of the veil!!

The green balance also struck me when I saw the pics. I think Camila was probably told to wear a neutral shade/very light pastel, as was Catherine. The Queen and Doria balance out on the left and right, and the two other ladies Camilla and Catherine also balance out the lighter pastels. The ladies colors are then accented by the bouquets' colors of green (Queen and Doria) and white (light pastels of Camilla and Catherine).

Still don't like Meghan's hair in the B&W photo--reminds me of beauty pageants somehow.

The pageboy outfits are miniatures of Prince Harry and Prince William uniform

Kate's light yellow outfit is harmonious with the green but Camilla's pink is too stand out.

I hope for some color too but I guess they can't modify too much as it is based on actual military uniform?

Not in this case...you have a green and gold room...and everyone in white/cream/pale green...then Camilla in pink. If it was a blush it would work. It's too pink and different from everyone else's.


LaRae

Osipi 05-21-2018 11:18 AM

Basically, to me, what mattered is that the two most important women at the wedding were color coordinated. Doria and The Queen (in lieu of Harry's mother being deceased). I noticed it right away at the ceremony. HM added a touch of regal purple flowers to her hat though.

I actually liked the page boys outfits. Now, George has a uniform to wear just like his Daddy's and I bet his mother didn't have to fuss overly much to get George dressed up in it. I hope Kate took a private picture of Daddy and son in uniforms standing side by side. That would be a keeper for sure. :biggrin:

Maybe it was meant as an accent to the red bits in the room, the only other color present, aside from the blue, that stands alone. Perhaps lighter shade of the Queen's dark purple hat plumes would have tied her together with the rest.

Forgot to comment on the best part of the photo--they all seem so joyful.

Oh it is also the first time we see George wearing a pants (trousers)

Nitpicking much ? I mean the carpet is red, the walls have an almost pinkish tone and Camilla 's pale pink outfit looks almost white.
All is well balanced, colourful and lively.

I believe it's pretty traditional for pageboys in the UK to be dressed in either military-eque outfits or old fashioned outfits. With the royal men who've married in uniform (Charles, Andrew, William, and now Harry) the pageboy outfit have all been clearly inspired by the uniform that they wore. With Harry's pageboys it's kind of hard to give them colour when his own uniform was lacking in colour.

Moonmaiden23 05-21-2018 11:39 AM

The Sussex official Wedding Photos are the most beautiful and romantic Royal wedding pictures I have ever seen. No exceptions.

The one of Harry and Meghan seated on the steps of Frogmore House is just everything.

Great work, Count Lubomirska!:smile:

Just pointing out that for me this throws the balance of the photo off. I already said this....and her outfit is pink...doesn't even look close to white.

I'm kind of with you here. I liked Camilla's outfit in general, but it does stand out in a not great way in the family photo - had the dress been a bit paler it would have been better for this photo.

Actually, my first thought, when I saw the colours of Her Majesty's outfit -and given that Meghan is an acknowledged feminist- was that it was a nod to the Suffragette movement.

Cocoasneeze 05-21-2018 12:00 PM

What gorgeous pictures. I love how close to Meghan both Harry and Doria are.

The children look so lovely and lively. It looks like they had fun.

The black and white one is really romantic, the setting.

Meghan and Harry both look extremely happy, beaming.

LaRae

Perhaps it was even intentional. Its a family portrait and with Camilla being just a little bit off balance from the others in the pictures, it may be a subtle way of referencing Camilla as a stepmother. She's part of it all, she is with the happy family on a joyous day but rather than mesh in with the Queen and the mother of the bride, she wore something that did in a way seem "out of place" for the reason I've given.

It would be something I think Camilla would think of. She's never tried to or even wanted to "fill" Diana's shoes with William and Harry.

Just thoughts.

An Ard Ri 05-21-2018 12:13 PM

Love the new photos and what a gorgeous room for the background.

O-H Anglophile 05-21-2018 12:18 PM

I think Camilla's pink co-ordinates with the red & pinkish color of the roses and pattern in the carpet.

I don't like the photos, they look so dark, and the only Meghan and Henry photo is black and white. A huge group photo would have been lovely! The only thing I like is that childrens photo with Henry and Meghan on their level.

Brian, Ivy and John Mulroney are children of Meghans friends Jessica and Ben Mulroney.

Jasper Dyer, Florence Van Cutsem and Zalie Warren are Henry's godchildren.

Remi and Rylan Litt are Meghans godchildren.

We know who George and Charlotte are. ;)

I'm of the opinion that cream per se doesn't do Camilla justice. She seems to become 'lost' in it -possibly because of her blond hair? However, I loved the pale pink. More, I think, than the duck egg blue she often wears

Going off the picture with just the children with Harry and Meghan (to the best of my ability.

Standing L-R: Brian Mulroney (one of the twin sons of Meghan's close friend Jessica and her husband Ben), Remi Litt (one of the daughters of Meghan's longtime friend Benita and her husband Darren, referred to as Meghan's "fairy goddaughters"), Jasper Dyer (Harry's godson and the son of his mentor Mark Dyer), John Mulroney (twin of the aforementioned Brian).

Sitting on the couch or otherwise level with it L-R: Rylan Litt (sister of the aforementioned Remi, one of Meghan's fairy godchildren), Prince George (Harry's nephew and Prince William's elder son), and Ivy Mulroney (Daughter of Jessica and Ben Mulroney, younger sister to the aforementioned twins)

Sitting on the floor L-R: Zailie Warren (Harry's goddaughter and daughter of his close friend Jake Warren), Princess Charlotte (Harry's niece and daughter of Prince William), and Florence van Cutsem (Harry's goddaughter, Daughter of his friend Nicholas van Cutsem, cousin of Grace van Cutsem who was a bridesmaid at William and Kate's wedding)

I almost think Ivy is somewhat of a mini maid of honor. :lol: She's the only one that didn't have her own bouquet, but she held Auntie Meghan's during the service, which explained why she didn't have her own. LOVE the one with her and Florence van Cutsem sharing the bouquet btw. :wub:

Anyone closer than Anne Komorowska’s great great great grandmother from her mother’ side?

Moonmaiden23 05-21-2018 03:21 PM

:previous: This is not the thread to discuss it, but I don't know and I am not even sure why it matters if it's any closer than that.


My point was that Mathilde's mother has a line of descent from the Lubomirski family and she does, same as the current queen of England has Hanover ancestors.

The TV commentators said the pageboy uniforms were based on the Blues and Royals uniform. I am not an expert in military attire, so I can't tell from the pictures.

Henry and William were wearing Blues and Royals uniform, that of the household cavalry. You’ll notice George has a similar frockcoat to Henry with the black lapels/feathers on the front.

FYI - you're right. Queen Mathilde and Alex Lubomirski are both descendants of Prince Jozef Lubomirski (1751-1817).

VictoriaB 05-21-2018 08:18 PM

I think the photos are very, very beautiful (how could they not be given how head over heals in love the couple look, how stunning the bride was and how adorable the children were) but the indoor ones seem a little dark. Maybe if they had been posed against a lighter background. Charles and Camilla used the White Drawing Room and I think that provided a lighter look to their photos.

Juliette2 05-21-2018 09:15 PM

I'm not sure about the pictures. I find them all a bit too "Vogue" for my taste (dark and sultry and with a lot of contrasting light...).

The family one was the best one. A great picture overall. I like that it was "intimate."It really felt that way. A big "group" picture would have isolated Doria even more. Prince Harry looks great. I know she's the bride but Meghan takes a lot of space (wait, I'm going to explain..!!). What I mean is that I like to see wedding pictures where the bride and groom are equal, presenting themselves as a couple, as a unity, where one doesn't' hide, tower or outshine the other (especially if only 3 pictures are released!!!).

In the one with the pageboys and bridesmaids Prince Harry looks amazing! Really natural. What i didn't like was the unnatural "grins" on some of the children. I know it's hard to photograph little ones but still...Overall a lovely shot.

The one I really dislike is the black and white one. Am I going to get a lot of backlash if I say that it's very conventional and bourgeois? That's how I feel though. Meghan's hair with the two locks are so common. I think 9 out of 10 brides have inexplicably sported that trend for the past 20 years (WHY???). At least they're not ringlets., but so close... The pose is too intimate, yet so staged, again it could come from any ordinary, average couple's wedding book, which maybe is what they wanted but not what I personally like to see when reading about the BRF. My two cents...

But I have to say Prince Harry looks great in all three! Very relaxed and happy!

Those two strands of hair, IMO, are going to be her signature look.

What I mean is that I like to see wedding pictures where the bride and groom are equal, presenting themselves as a couple, as a unity, where one doesn't' hide, tower or outshine the other (especially if only 3 pictures are released!!!).

In the one with the pageboys and bridesmaids Prince Harry looks amazing! Really natural. What i didn't like was the unnatural "grins" on some of the children. I know it's hard to photograph little ones but still...Overall a lovely shot.

The one I really dislike is the black and white one. Am I going to get a lot of backlash if I say that it's very conventional and bourgeois? That's how I feel though. Meghan's hair with the two locks are so common. I think 9 out of 10 brides have inexplicably sported that trend for the past 20 years (WHY???). At least they're not ringlets., but so close... The pose is too intimate, yet so staged, again it could come from any ordinary, average couple's wedding book, which maybe is what they wanted but not what I personally like to see when reading about the BRF. My two cents...

But I have to say Prince Harry looks great in all three! Very relaxed and happy!

I’m not sure what you are trying to convey. The bride is always the focus of any wedding, and wedding pictures are always posed and staged for Royal Weddings, so why should this wedding be any different?

Billie Holliday started wearing flowers in her hair because one day when she was trying to straighten it, she accidentally burned it off. So it became her signature look.

I dunno, I like the messy hair look, but everyone in my house has messy hair. I love these photos. And I love how affectionate they often are in photos. I think Meghan's affectionate nature is one of the things Harry loves about her.

I'm so used to my daughter's messy bun hair that when we had her graduation photos done, half of them are with her hair down and half with it thrown up into her signature bun--she didn't look like herself with her hair down over her shoulders.


I'm firmly in the camp that brides look better when they wear their hair mostly similar to their normal hairstyles. So Meghan looked just fine to me.

Wonderful photographs! I like how Princess Charlotte is sitting on her mother's lap.

Good thing about most young women her age, they don't tend to keep a 'signature look' for life. Her style will evolve. I don't think we will see the same 'royal uniform' we have seen with Kate (her style changing almost none since marriage). It will evolve with time and style. I am sure you will be seeing eventually a move from the messy bun. Maybe not soon enough for some.


The photos were amazing. So happy to come home from a long shift to them :smile:

The black and white photo is positively stunning. My favorite royal wedding portrait ever.

I love the one with the kids and them. The kids all seem so happy. I love where Ivy and Florence are sharing Florence's bouquet. I bet Ivy felt special she got to carry aunty Meghan's bouquet for her, but she was likely a little sad to not have her own in the photo times.

I don't find Camilla clashed at all. Happy she wasn't in green. Actually I wish if they knew they were doing pictures in a green room, there had been less green. Too much green on green. I think the lovely pink of Camilla and the yellowish of Kate looked great in the room.

I would really like a formal picture of just the 2 of them standing and with a complete sweep of the veil in front and not cut off. The veil is spectacular and i would love to see all of the detail. (ok... it could just be a picture of her - i really just want to see the veil:heart:

I'm sure one was taken, and many more. Hopefully we'll get to see more of them eventually. I'd love a better look at the veil!

I know! Although with Alexi’s eye for beauty, I can’t believe they didn’t. There is no way he would’ve let that veil go. The two indoors were quite traditional and what people would expect from royal wedding photos. But given that they went outside, there is hope. :wub::wub:

I get the sense there are two sets of photos- the overly formal ones that are expected of royal wedding pictures. The first two belong to them.

But Harry and Meghan likely opted for a few personal ones. Especially for Meghan who would be more used to the more candid or at least casual ones.

I get the sense the black and white one may have been released as an after thought. Kind of like when they did the engagement photos, and they had the two traditional photos. And then as a thank you, they released the third photo where we saw the full dress. That the couple decided to share one of their more private photos with the public. I get the sense the black and white, or one like it, is likely the one they will feature most in their home.

Those less traditional I always like the best. My two friends I was maid of honor for, we had a lot of staged and formal ones. But it was some of the more casual ones that were favorites. Including one of my best friend's daughter in her flower girl dress. She had got a hold of one of my high heels I ditched, and was playing phone with it. My other friend, the best photo comes from after the photo shoot was meant to be done. We were waiting for all the guests to leave so we could proceed to the reception for the big entrance, and we were sprawled out on the grass enjoying the sun. The photographer hadn't left and snapped a shot of us which none of us realized. Both photos are framed on my shelf to this day.

Wonderful photos.
- One Official Pic with the Queen.
- One still official one, but less formal, with a lot of fun (with the pageboys and flower girls)
- One just with the 2
Great job!

I don't think so. They did the exact same thing as Prince William did with official photos - one of the close family, one with page boys and girls and one with just the two of them, the difference being the one with just the two of them is rather casual.
Tbh, I would rather see another "official" one, as it would showcase the dress and the veil much better.

They'll be less noticeable when her hair is down. However, she'll probably have her hand there unconsciously as it may have become a habit.

Not to veer off topic but may I suggest those lamenting the hair take a quick look at the Garden Party, the Sussex first royal engagement.

Yes, she looked stunning at the Garden Party. My favorite look so far.

I think there was likely a ton of other pictures taken. And more then one with just the couple. Probably a few stiff, formal ones, like the usual royal portraits. I think Harry and Meghan likely saw the black and white, one that was likely intended more for a private photo for their own (maybe friends and family) and decided to release it instead.

Only liked the pic of Harry and Meghan alone; there are too many people in the other ones. I know its customary but I prefer the one of them sitting on the stairs alone.
