Prepare to have your breath taken away by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first official engagement photos!

Kensington Palace provided us with a stunning glimpse at the lovebirds’s happily ever after with two snaps of the newlyweds-to-be, which were captured by photographer Alexi Lubomirski at Frogmore House in Windsor.

In the first shot, the Suits actress looks radiant in a sheer black Ralph & Russo gown that tastefully puts her sparkling engagement ring on full display. The future bride leans up against the dapper prince, who is decked out in a smart navy blue suit – both appear positively enamored with one another.

Proving that their royal romance is definitely a modern fairy tale, a second photo – a black-and-white snap – shows the pair straying from tradition with a more candid angle.

The image offers viewers a rare look at an intimate moment between the pair as Markle, with her eyes closed, tenderly cradles Harry’s face with her hand.

And as a thank you for all the well wishes, the couple even shared a candid photograph from the same day. “The couple are so grateful for the warm and generous messages they have received during such a happy time in their lives,” Kensington Palace wrote on Instagram.
