LONDON: Newlyweds Prince Harry and Meghan thanked everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday, as their Kensington Palace residence published three official wedding photographs.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday,” the palace said in a statement.
“They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the UK, Commonwealth, and around the world,” it said.
Some 100,000 people came for the ceremony in Windsor, west of London and it was watched live globally, including by 29 million people in the US alone.
The new royal couple said they were “delighted” with the official portraits taken by Alexi Lubomirski and thanked the public for their “generous messages of support”. One photo shows the couple with Harry’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, her husband Prince Philip, and their son Prince Charles, the heir to the throne.
In another, the newlyweds pose with all the page boys and bridesmaids who took part in the wedding, including Prince George, who is third in line to the throne. The third shows the couple alone in black and white.
