The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have released new photos from their wedding to mark their first anniversary.

Harry and Meghan posted a compilation of 14 images, including some unseen pictures, on Instagram.

The photo montage is accompanied by the song This Little Light Of Mine, which played as they left St George's Chapel, Windsor, on their wedding day.

In the post, the couple thanked their followers for "all of the love and support from so many".

They added: "Each of you made this day even more meaningful."

A picture of the couple sharing a kiss on the steps as they left St George's Chapel - taken by Press Association photographer Danny Lawson - is also among the images shared.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a white boat-neck dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller for French fashion house Givenchy on the day.

She was walked down the aisle by Prince Charles after her father was unable to attend for health reasons.

The birth of Harry and Meghan's son came less than a year after the royal nuptials in the grounds of Windsor Castle, a wedding attended by celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Serena Williams and Priyanka Chopra.

The Sussexes have used their Instagram account to share images of private moments in their first year of marriage, including pictures of their baby son Archie's feet.

The birth of the couple's baby earlier this month was also announced on Instagram.

Shortly after a photocall to introduce Archie to the public, Harry and Meghan shared a more personal image on social media, showing the Queen and Prince Philip meeting their newest great-grandchild.

The moment was once again captured by photographer Chris Allerton.
