It's hard to believe that it's been a year since we watched Meghan Markle walk down the aisle in her Givenchy wedding dress, and saw her and Prince Harry drive off into the sunset in a vintage Jaguar. But there were many moments from the couple's big day that the world didn't get to see, and in honor of their first anniversary they're giving us a look at some pretty special ones from behind the scenes.
On May 19th—exactly one year after their wedding at St. George's Chapel—the palace released 14 never-before-seen photos on the couple's Instagram page. The black-and-white slideshow is set to the song "This Little Light of Mine," which Meghan and Harry chose for their recessional, and shows some beautifully intimate moments. There is a photo of Meghan and Prince Charles shortly before they walked down the aisle, shots of both Meghan and Harry signing wedding documents, and a photo of the couple with their flower girls and page boys, among others.
The palace also shared a message from the Duke and Duchess in the caption. "Thank you for all of the love and support from so many of you around the world," it reads. "Each of you made this day even more meaningful."
Their anniversary is hardly the only thing the Sussexes are celebrating this month. On May 6th, they welcomed their first child together, Archie. In his first public statement after the birth, Prince Harry called welcoming his son, "the most amazing experience I could ever possibly imagine."
He continued, "How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension, but we’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful to all the love and support of everybody out there, from everybody out there. It's been amazing, so just wanted to share this with everybody."
