Take a look back with us at some of the most famous royal engagement photos in history: those of the British monarchy. We’ll start with the royal engagement photos of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, then work our way through the family.
We have a snippet of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and both portraits of Prince William and Kate Middleton. And of course we haven’t forgotten the always controversial Prince Charles with Lady Diana and then Camilla Parker-Bowles.
