The royal couple has everyone talking again, with their latest photoshoot.

The words on everybody's lips over the past few months has been Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Now the couple have set tongues wagging once again with their latest photoshoot.

Kensington Palace released two new photos of the couple to celebrate their engagement and they are NOTHING like your average royal photoshoot.

Unlike the prim and proper engagement photos we've seen in the past, Harry and Meghan are seen canoodling in what has to be the ultimate display of PDA ever.

The stunning shots, which were taken by noted fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski, see the Prince and his fiance posing on the steps of Frogmore House, Windsor.

In one black and white shot, Prince Harry pulls Meghan in close for a warm embrace wearing a winter coat while she touches his cheek affectionately - just enough to show off the massive bling on her engagement finger.

The stunning ring, which Harry personally designed using stone from Botswana and two more diamonds from Prince Diana's personal collection, glimmers in the light while Meghan beams from ear to ear.

Lubomirski said: "It was an incredible honour to be asked to document this wonderful event, but also a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for one another. 

"I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together."

He added: "A huge thank you to His Royal Highness Prince Harry and Ms Markle, for allowing me to take their official engagement portraits."

The photographs come weeks after the official announcement of their engagement, and their first appearance together in front of the cameras in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace. 

Harry and Meghan's photos draw a stark comparison to engagement photos we've seen in the past.

Looking back at William and Kate's engagement photos, the tone is completely different.

While Kate and William pulled each other in for a cheery hug, Harry and Meghan have their eyes closed while Meghan's hand on the chin looks as though their just about to have a cheeky kiss.

It's very clear they are head over heels.
