The Official Wedding Portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex

The official royal wedding photos are here and they are gorgeous. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared three formal portraits, taken by Alexis Lubomirski, of their special day. And they are rather special themselves.

We get two group portraits in the set, taken in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor Castle. As well as a photo with the Queen there is another gathering with Meghan, Harry and their bridal party. And, just as Kate and William did in 2011, they pay homage to the famous portrait of Charles and Diana and their bridesmaids and pageboys with the group sitting on the floor and giggling.

The final portrait in the set stars the bride and groom in a romantic black and white shot where Harry looks really very happy with himself and his bride looks very, very beautiful indeed. The three photos won just under three million likes in less than an hour on the official Kensington Palace Instagram account and no wonder. The official portraits are the perfect end to a perfect weekend.

The House of Windsor at 100: daughters of the Crown

On July 17th 1917, George V issued a royal proclamation changing the name of his royal house and family to Windsor. It was the beginning of dynasty that would set records and change the concept of modern monarchy. And it's a house built on and by women. We've already met some of them when remembering the consorts, now we turn to the royal daughters. Four women have been born to the monarchs of the House of Windsor, all of them hugely important. As we mark the centenary of this special dynasty, here are the daughters of those who have worn the Crown.

The Queen's January

January is always a low key month for the Queen. She stays at Sandringham throughout the month and we mostly get to see her as she heads out to church. But while the public appearances have been as restrained as usual, Elizabeth II has found herself hovering close to the headlines in what's proved to be a busy month for the monarch.
