Could Meghan Markle and Prince Harry get any cuter?! Kensington Palace just posted a photo of Meghan, happily holding her baby bump in the middle of a redwood forest in New Zealand. It’s a good photo, but the story behind it is even better.
Unlike any of the usual photos of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, this one comes from Prince Harry himself.
As reported in Elle, royal reporter Omid Scobie (who was with the royal couple at the time the photo was taken) took to Twitter to explain how the sweet family photo came about. Apparently, Harry took the photo during a rare moment of alone-ish time. The couple was at the Redwoods Treewalk for the last event of their royal tour. As always, an entourage of security, staff, reporters, and fans accompanied them for most of the event.
“At the end of our last tour engagement, Harry and Meghan walked ahead of their team, security, and myself (who was the pool reporter),” Omid wrote on Twitter. “We were in the beautiful Whakarewarewa Forest and they wanted a moment to themselves.”
It was at that moment that Harry whipped out his own iPhone and took a photo of his pregnant wife.
Kensington Palace later shared the photo on Instagram. The caption included a message from the couple — and photo credit to Harry, of course.
