The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are celebrating two years since the announcement of their engagement with a previously unseen portrait from their wedding last year.
Taking to Instagram, the new parents shared three beautiful photos to mark the happy occasion: a photograph from their engagement photocall at Kensington Palace, a brand new photograph from their royal wedding in May last year and a beautiful shot of the Sussexes as a new family-of-three during Archie's debut to the world.
In the never-before-seen wedding portrait, the couple are captured in an adorable candid moment after their ceremony in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle with their arms around each other and Meghan laughing.
"On this day, two years ago: 27th of November 2017, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the news of their engagement, later becoming Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex," the Instagram caption begins.
"They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world ❤"
Exactly two years ago, hot on the heels of their official engagement announcement and after just 16 months of dating, Prince Harry and Meghan faced the press for an official photocall at one of Princess Diana's favourite places, The Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace.
Looking blissfully happy, Meghan showed off her beautiful ring, touchingly designed by Prince Harry himself, featuring a diamond from Botswana – a place close to their hearts after several trips there together – and two diamonds from Harry's mother, Diana's personal collection.
Sitting down with BBC for their official engagement interview the couple revealed Prince Harry popped the question while they were at their home at the time, Nottingham Cottage at Kensington, while they were roasting a chicken for dinner.
"She didn't even let me finish, she said 'Can I say yes, can I say yes?'" Harry revealed.
"And then there were hugs and I had the ring in my hand and I was like can I… can I give you the ring? And she goes, 'Oh yes, the ring!'" Harry laughed.
"It was a really nice moment, it was just the two of us and I think managed to catch her by surprise as well."
Meghan added: "It was so sweet and natural and very romantic."

Since their happy engagement announcement two years ago a lot has happened for Harry and Meghan.
It was not long after tying the knot in an historic wedding that the couple also announced they were expecting their first child and on the very first day of their first international tour as a newlywed couple, no less!
After an incredibly successful tour of Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga in 2018, Meghan was then bestowed four royal patronages at the start of this year before they welcomed their first child into the world on May 6, 2019, a son, who they named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
A move from Kensington Palace to their first family home Frogmore Cottage at Windsor has also been undertaken, as well as an official split from the Kensington household (the office of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) as well as international royal tours to Morocco and southern Africa.
In May the couple also marked their one year wedding anniversary, sharing a number of behind-the-scenes photographs from the incredibly special day, compiled in a beautiful video to the tune of This Little Heart of Mine.

As a couple always eager to try new things, the couple have taken new approaches to their charitable efforts, with Meghan guest-edited the September issue of British Vogue this year, with the aim to shine light on people who are forces for change around the world, and collaborating on a capsule clothing collection to benefit one of her patronages, Smart Works.
The Sussexes are currently on an extended break until the end of the year, but if these past two years are anything to go by, we can't wait to see what exciting things are in store for them next year.
