Prince Harry and Meghan Markle release previously unseen photos to celebrate first anniversary

One year on, the couple have shared behind-the-scenes photos from their wedding day

It's been a year since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle married and, to celebrate the occasion, they have shared a video of previously unseen images from their big day.

A video on the Sussex Royal Instagram shows tender moments, from the signing of the registry to the Duchess of Sussex with her mother, Doria Ragland. There is also a photo of Prince Harry having a solitary second, perhaps practicing his groom's speech for later that day.

See all of the photos in the gallery above. 

It has been a big year for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. They married at St George’s Chapel within the grounds of Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, and earlier this month, on May 6, they welcomed a baby boy, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.

The soundtrack of the video is This Little Light of Mine, the song chosen by the couple for their recessional.

"Thank you for all of the love and support from so many of you around the world. Each of you made this day even more meaningful," the couple said in a joint message on their anniversary.

On May 18, Prince Harry was back at St George's Chapel for the wedding of Lady Gabriella Windsor, the daughter of Queen Elizabeth II's cousin, Prince Michael of Kent, to financier Thomas Kingston.

Also in attendance from the royal family was the queen, Prince Philip, Princess Anne, Prince Harry and Prince Edward. Like the Duchess of Sussex, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did not attend.

But Kate Middleton's mother and father, Carole and Michael Middleton, brother James Middleton and sister, Pippa Matthews, all attended. Mrs Matthews is said to be a long-time close friend of the Kingstons.
