Other engagement photos can call it a day.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released photos from their engagement Thursday morning, and they are a dream!

In one image (above), Harry has his arms wrapped about the Suits actress, clad in a long-sleeve Ralph & Russo gown from the fall/winter 2016/2017 collection, featuring a bodice embroidered with gilded feathers and a silk organza skirt. Markle opted for a similar look by Self-Portrait at Wednesday’s pre-Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.

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

Markle’s gown can be seen in all of its glory in this candid image of her and Harry that the couple released.

The pics also give us another chance to look at that gorgeous sparkler that Harry told the press he designed himself, featuring two diamonds from Princess Diana’s personal collection, and another from Botswana, where the lovebirds spent time together.

Kensington Palace shared on Twitter that the engagement pictures were snapped by fashion and celebrity photographer Alexi Lubomirski earlier in the week at Frogmore House, the 17th century manor on the Windsor Castle estate about a mile from the Castle. It’s best known as a former Royal Family home and is the site of the Royal Burial Ground, the cemetery that surrounds the Royal Mausoleum, where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert are buried.

Frogmore House, which is open to the public, is still used for occasional family functions, including wedding receptions. The fact Harry and Markle’s engagement photos were taken at Frogmore might be a sign that the pair are are considering the location for their reception.

Charles, Prince of Wales, and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall got married in St. George’s Chapel and afterward, a reception for 800 was held at Windsor Castle. But Harry and his bride-to-be’s reception might be smaller and thus a better fit for Frogmore.

The photogenic couple will tie the knot on May 19 at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
