The Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was no less than a magical affair. In the words of our Desi Girl, Meghan’s good friend and one of the guests at the wedding Priyanka Chopra, this was a wedding which stood for hope and change, and we agree with the same. Though the world officially witnessed the wedding live, there were pictures that went viral too. And the palace recently released three official pictures, making us fall in love again.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released three official photographs from their Wedding day. This photo of The Duke and Duchess with the Bridesmaids and Page Boys was taken by photographer @alexilubomirski in The Green Drawing Room of Windsor Castle #RoyalWedding

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday. They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the UK, Commonwealth, and around the world #RoyalWedding
However, we bet you did not notice this teeny tiny detail in the pictures. British Author Emily Griffin, who penned the book ‘Something Borrowed’, which was made into a movie, is a big fan of the royals and is known to introduce us to various facets of their lives.
She took to her Instagram account to reveal the fact that the green sofa that was used in these pictures was actually the same one that was used at the time of Prince Harry’s christening!
She captioned it saying, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex purposefully posed on the same green sofa used in Harry's christening portraits at Windsor Castle in 1984. The 1827 sofa is made of gilded mahogany and upholstered with green silk damask. The arms are carved with lotus leaves, the seat is railed with foliage, and there are lions' paw feet at the front, while the back legs are of sabre design. 💚”
How sweet! For more such details about the Royal family, and of course Emily’s latest works, follow her on her Instagram handle emilygiffinauthor.
