Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are celebrating two years since the announcement of their engagement with a never-before-seen portrait from their royal wedding!

The royal couple, who welcomed son Archie on May 6, marked the happy occasion on their joint Instagram page, sharing three photos from important milestones in their relationship: a snap from their engagement photo call on Nov. 27, 2017, the new wedding photo in black and white and a shot from their public debut as a family of three.

In the wedding portrait, photographer Chris Allerton captured an unposed moment of Meghan and Harry following their fairy tale ceremony at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle. The couple have their arms around each other — and Meghan is doubled over with a big smile on her face!

“On this day, two years ago: 27th of November 2017, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced the news of their engagement, later becoming Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex! They have since celebrated their wedding anniversary and welcomed their son, Archie, into the world,” they captioned the post.

The royal couple held their engagement announcement photo call in the Sunken Gardens, which was one of Princess Diana’s favorite places. When asked by the press how they feel, Harry replied: “Thrilled. Very glad it’s not raining!” Meghan then added: “So happy.”

When asked when he knew she was the one, Harry said with a smile: “The very first time we met.”

Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, revealed they would take about six weeks off towards the end of the year amid their concerns that the intense scrutiny they’ve faced has been tough on the couple.

“The duke and duchess have a full schedule of engagements and commitments until mid-November, after which they will be taking some much-needed family time,” a royal source confirmed to PEOPLE.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking forward to extended family time towards the end of this month,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on Wednesday. “Having spent the last two Christmases at Sandringham, Their Royal Highnesses will spend the holiday this year, as a new family, with the Duchess’ mother Doria Ragland. This decision is in line with precedent set previously by other members of the Royal Family, and has the support of Her Majesty The Queen.”
