Meghan looks stunning dressed in all white while Harry dons an all black outfit.

The Duchess of Sussex also pays a subtle tribute to Harry’s late mother Princess Diana as she wears her Cartier Tank Francaise watch.

Meanwhile, another image sees the couple posing in front of a window as Harry wears a suit while Meghan looks sophisticated in a green roll neck jumper and grey trousers.

Finally, a third picture shows Meghan and Harry walking around the outside of their home in Montecito.

However, the photos have sparked a huge reaction online with some people believing they’re photoshopped.

One person said on Twitter: “The Harry and Meghan portraits aren’t cute. They’ve been photoshopped too much. They don’t even look real.”

Another wrote: “That Time cover picture is awful. Meghan and Harry look like they were photoshopped to appear together. Very odd choice.”

A third tweeted: “Did Harry and Meghan actually attend the photoshoot or did they just have their heads photoshopped on to someone’s bodies?

“This is a very strange image.”

Another added: “It’s strange. Harry appears shorter and has the feel of a composite photo & photoshopped. Meghan looks lovely though.”

Meanwhile, others gushed over the couple and defended the images.

One said: “Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duke and Duchess of Sussex @TIME WINNING! These are gorgeous photos!”
