Meghan and Harry’s ‘powerful’ portrait released days after Royal Family photo

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have seen a pair of pictures released of them just days after one was released by senior Buckingham Palace royals.

The beautifully lit portrait was taken by Misan Harriman, a veteran photographer and activist who is the chair of the famous Southbank Centre in London.

Posting his work on Instagram, Mr Harriman said: “The Duke & Duchess of Sussex moments before attending the opening ceremony of @OneYoungWorld last month."

It comes just days after Buckingham Palace released a joint portrait with King Charles, Queen consort Camilla and William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales.

The images of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have ruffled some feathers and are loved by others, with royal fans and commentators alike weighing in on the portrait.

Taking to Twitter, Royal expertKinsey Schofieldsaid: “Back to our regularly scheduled PR spam. #Blessed”.

Countless fans meanwhile flocked to the post from Mr Harriman to show their support.

A long list of comments feature fire or heart emojis, while many generically said it was beautiful – although it is hard to tell whether they were referencing the subjects, the artist's excellent work or both.

“What a beautiful & STRONG picture” said shelley_80_.

“I am so glad they found each other,” jeeinabottle chipped in.

Monicajosephmcarthur said: “What a stunning picture, you bring out something in them for sure. It is a level of comfort, trust and respect. Well done sir!”

Commenting on the black and white portrait released just minutes later, user pherawaty said: "Beautiful and powerful".

Elsewhere on the internet though people have been less favourable to the release.

In response to a post by Kinsey, @applema94099498 said: “Everything is a role for Meghan. Like this is a poster for "Vengeance Part 2" coming at a theatre near you. I would say poor Harry, but he's loving it. Trust me Harry, it's not a good look in the long run.

“It just took one photo with the RF and boom they are right out there. The rest of their lives will always be one step behind the RF. Pathetic!”
