It sounds like leaving their roles as senior members of the Royal Family was the right choice for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle for many reasons — not least of all because Meghan’s hair is amazing now.
We kid, of course. Lustrous hair is nowhere near as important as the couple’s mental health, or their family’s happiness. But looking at a new portrait of the couple, their first since stepping down at the beginning of the year, it’s hard not get distracted by the Duchess of Sussex’s long, shiny, perfectly wavy, dramatic, covetable hair. Just look at it!

The gorgeous black-and-white portrait, by photographer Matt Sayles, is reminiscent of the photos they released to celebrate their engagement. Those were by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski. And while that, too, was undeniably beautiful — and it goes without saying the couple look incredible — nothing can measure up to Meghan’s present-day hair. It just can’t.
A huge thank you to His Royal Highness Prince Harry and Ms Markle, for allowing me to take their official engagement portraits. Not only was it an incredible honour, but also an immense privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for each other. I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took. @Kensingtonroyal
