Even though baby Archie is the current royal newsmaker, it was only a year ago that his parents’ wedding was dominating the headlines. In celebration of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s one-year anniversary, the new parents released never before seen pictures of their 2018 nuptials.

The couple posted the pics on their Instagram page, slide show style. The behind-the-scenes photo roll one by one to the song “This Little Light of Mine.”

Happy one year anniversary to Their Royal Highnesses, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! Today marks the one year anniversary of the wedding of The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Their Royal Highnesses exchanged vows at St George’s Chapel within the grounds of Windsor Castle on May 19th, 2018. The selected song “This Little Light of Mine” was chosen by the couple for their recessional. We hope you enjoy reliving this moment, and seeing some behind the scenes photos from this special day. A message from The Duke & Duchess: 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.

Along with a bounty of black and white images, the couple’s IG picks also include gorgeous post-wedding shots in full color. From Prince Harry walking down the stairs on his wedding day, to his bride-to-be sweetly holding hands with her own mother, the photos are absolutely everything any fan of the Royals (or for that matter, any fan of romance) would want to see.

A storybook wedding and the birth of an absolutely adorable son all in one year? Who could ask for more?
