Inside Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's gorgeous post-wedding thank you cards.

Nearly two months on from the royal wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are settling into their new roles as Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

And now, the couple are handling all that post-wedding admin, sending out thank you cards to the thousands of well-wishers who sent them cards and gifts.

The card features Alexi Lubomirski’s now-famous black and white photograph of the pair, captured on the stairs of Frogmore House in Windsor just moments after the couple wed.

The inside of the card reads, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overwhelmed by all the incredibly kind cards and letters they have received on the occasion of their Wedding, and are so touched that you took the trouble to write as you did”.

“It really was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated by Their Royal Highnesses who send you their very best wishes.”

The unsigned card was shared on an Instagram account, which shares royal correspondence and letters.

The Alexi Lubomirski photograph featured on the card was a spur of the moment shot – captured in just three minutes.

“We went out there and had about three and a half minutes to take some quick shots because everything was running like clockwork,” Lubomirski told BBC News.

“It was just one of those magical moments when you’re a photographer and everything falls into place. I said ‘just before you go in, sit on those stairs’.

“And she just slumped between his legs and there was this moment where they were just laughing because they were exhausted and thinking finally it’s all over. It was one of these beautiful moments,” he said.

The couple previously sent out thank you notes following their royal engagement last November.
