The intimate wedding photos include a number of black-and-white images by photographer Chris Allerton and give a candid glimpse of the highly publicised wedding.

One captures a private moment between Meghan and her mother Doria Ragland as they hold hands.

In another photo Prince Harry stands alone seemingly rehearsing his wedding vows near a sunlit window.

He is also seen ‘thumbing’ a ride to the wedding chapel in his royal finery.
