Earlier this week, Meghan Markle was present at the Queen's annual Christmas party at Sandringham, joining the extended royal family to celebrate the upcoming holiday season. Wearing a Self-Portrait dress, Meghan was snapped smiling ear to ear as she and fiancée, Prince Harry, drove into the estate. 

And it seems that the pair have not stopped smiling since news of their engagement broke a few weeks ago. Just now, Kensington Palace released the official engagement photos of the pair and they are seriously adorable.

Shot at Frogmore House in Windsor by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski, the two portraits show just how comfortable the pair is with one another. The first photo is the more formal of the two, showing the pair sitting on stairs with Meghan resting on Harry's leg, whilst the second image is of the pair with their heads close together with Meghan smiling and her ring on full display.

According to a statement released by the palace, Lubomirski said, "It was an incredible honour to be asked to document this wonderful event but also a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple's love for one another. I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos we took of them, such was their happiness together."
