As the hoopla around their big week begins to die down, and after appearing in public for the first time as husband and wife, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex (better known as Harry and Meghan) have caught the attention of the press with a simple act that Royals do every day. But this time, curiosity was peaked because of all the expectations that are heaped upon the Royal couple.
With everyone thinking that the duo will start a family right away, we are waiting patiently for “that announcement” that will herald the arrival of a new royal baby.
Coming less than a week after their spectacular wedding, though, it’s unlikely that it will be the statement that we’re all waiting for, but nonetheless, we are dying to know what they had to say.
Just a few short days after Harry and Meghan said their ‘I Dos’ the couple took time out from their hectic schedules to send a sweet message to all their fans, delighting them, one and all!
In the short statement, the Duke and Duchess express their gratitude to everyone who participated, either at Windsor or around the world via television, and to those who sent their good wishes for the newlyweds:
"The Duke and Duchess would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding.
"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 UK, Commonwealth and around the world."
Along with the short but sweet message, the Palace released three official wedding photographs that have been enchanting everyone who has been lucky enough set eyes on them.
One is of the couple with the junior members of the bridal party, including Prince George and Princess Charlotte, two fan-favorites!
The second is of the entire Windsor Family, including the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and wife Camilla, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the junior attendants, and Meghan’s mum, Doria Ragland.
The third is a stunning snap of the new husband and wife casually lounging together on the steps in front of Windsor Castle.
The brilliant pictures were snapped by photographer Alexi Lubomirski.
Even though the statement is not the one we are eagerly awaiting, we are happy to receive word from the newlywed couple. And what about those photos? Wow!!
