The Suits actress wore a black gown-featuring a sheer bodice with gold embroidery and a tulle skirt-by the British brand Ralph and Russo's 2016 couture collection.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are thankful for the support they have received since releasing their official engagement photos on Thursday, December 21. The original gown was presented on the runway in July without the more modest, nude-colored lining added to Markle's dress.

The first of the photographs, taken by Alexi Lubomirski earlier this week at Frogmore House, Windsor, features the couple staring through the lens, looking serene and content. In one image, Meghan and Harry were photographed sitting on stairs while the Suits alum leaned against her fiancé's legs.

The world has been swooning over Prince Harry and his new fiancee Meghan Markle's adorable relationship ever since they announced their engagement last month. Harry and Markle hired photographer Alexi Lubomirksi.

Proving that their royal romance is definitely a modern fairytale, a second photo-a black-and-white snap-shows the pair straying from tradition with a more candid angle.

The clothing and the poses are a clear departure from the official engagement photos of Harry's older brother, Prince William, and the then Kate Middleton, taken in December 2010. The actress' ring, which Harry designed himself, is front and center while Markle closes her eyes and smiles. "I can not help but smile when I look at the photos that we took", the photographer continued.

The couple are set to marry on May 19 in St George's Castle at Windsor Castle, and there have already been rumours over who will and won't be attending.

Other members of the royal family joined the Christmas lunch festivities, including the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who also opted to drive to the event with their two young children and their nanny.

If you love that photo, just wait for the black and whites.
