You thought the Royal Wedding excitement was over, what with it being on Saturday and everything, didn't you? Well, wrong - because Kensington Palace have surprised us all by releasing the official family portraits from the wedding and it's a glorious sight to behold.

In the photos, which remind me of school pictures from days gone by - just way more formal with way more photogenic people in it - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (or the Duke and Duchess of Susses as they're now called) can be seen in the centre, surrounded by all their family.

The Queen and Prince Philip are seated to the left of Prince Harry along with Prince Charles, Camilla behind them, while Meghan's mother Doria Ragland is pictured alongside her daughter to the right. Also to the right, Meghan's sister-in-law Kate Middleton is pictured, along with Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and the other 8 tiny bridesmaids and page boys, all looking adorable in their dinky Givenchy outfits.

In a second photograph, just Meghan and Harry pose with all 10 of the baby bridal party.

And in a third image shared by Kensington Palace on social media today, newlyweds Meghan and Harry can be seen in an intimate pose that's reminiscent of their engagement photographs, taken at Frogmore House last year.

The black-and-white image shows Meghan and Harry sitting on the steps of Windsor Castle, smiling and looking pretty damn happy.

The Palace released all three pictures along with a caption thanking well-wishers.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex would like to thank everyone who took part in the celebrations of their wedding on Saturday," the post read. "They feel so lucky to have been able to share their day with all those gathered in Windsor and also all those who watched the wedding on television across the UK, Commonwealth, and around the world #RoyalWedding"

It's tradition for the Royal Family to release the official family photograph following a Royal Wedding. On 30 April 2011, a day after Prince William married Kate Middleton, the Palace released these photos publicly:
