In this handout photo provided by Kensington Palace, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle pose for one of two official engagement photos at Frogmore House in December, 2017 in Windsor, United Kingdom. The photographs were shot earlier this week at Frogmore House in Windsor by acclaimed fashion photographer Alexi Lumbomirski.
It's unlikely that Prince Harry's future wife would have purchased the expensive dress herself, given that designers typically loan samples of their clothes to celebrities in exchange for publicity.
From how happy the hubby and bride-to-be look in these pics. we're guessing they couldn't care less.
"The ring is yellow gold, because that's [Markle's] favorite, and the main stone itself I sourced from Botswana, and the little diamonds either side are from my mother's jewelry collection to make sure that she's with us on this - on this insane journey together", Harry said during the couple's first joint interview with the BBC.
Then a third portrait was released two hours later as a "candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings", with Kensington Palace saying the couple thanked well-wishers for their "warm and generous messages".
However, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace told Mail Online that the gown was "privately purchased", although it is unclear as to who made the purchase and whether or not a discount was applied. The couple's nuptials will take place at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle.
Younger, hipper, cooler - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's engagement photographs herald a new era of royal portraiture, just as their relationship has.
The prince and Meghan announced their engagement last month after an 18-month romance.
