Last night, the British designer - who became the first female artistic director of Givenchy last year - shared the viral aerial photo of Meghan and Prince Harry holding hands during the carriage procession, following their nuptials at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

‘One of my absolute favourite photos of the week – the of the newly wed [sic] Duke and Duchess of Sussex in their carriage to Windsor,’ Waight Keller wrote in the caption.

‘I watched from the church as they went by and stood next to Lady Diana’s brother Earl Spencer,’ she continued.

‘Quite an incredibly poignant moment.#royalwedding #meghanmarkle#princeharry #love ♥️.’

Yui Mok, a photographer for Press Association, was the mastermind behind the heartwarming photograph from the couple's wedding day, taken the moment they entered Windsor Castle in their carriage.

On closer inspection, you’ll see the couple’s bodies seem to form an almost perfect heart shape, much to royal fans' delight.

After the picture went viral, Mok explained on Twitter that he took the photo as he was ‘positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle’ and the carriage procession passed directly beneath him.

‘I had less than a one-second window to take that particular shot — whilst having to focus through a metal grill I was standing over — so was happy to get anything really!’ Mok wrote.

It’s no wonder several Twitter users described the photo as ‘exquisite’.
