Royal couple release official photographs

After tying the knot on Saturday, the royal couple issued three official portrait pictures taken by Alexi Lubomirski.

One shows the couple pictured in the castle's Green Drawing Room flanked by Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, and Harry's father, the heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles.

It also includes the 92-year-old queen and her husband Prince Philip, 96, sitting alongside, together with Harry's elder brother Prince William, his wife Kate and Charles's second wife Camilla.

The royal wedding ceremony was filled with laughs and not a few tears, the couple held hands throughout, and the prince was visibly emotional as he greeted his bride at the altar saying: "You look amazing."
