Between their official royal wedding photos and the thousands more taken at their public events, it's rare to have an unseen photo of the couple.

They also shared some never-before-seen shots of their wedding to mark their one-year anniversary last month.

This is the second time this particular picture of the smiling couple has popped up in the background of a royal photo.

Last year, Queen Elizabeth II was photographed hosting Honorable George Brandis, the Australian high commissioner to the United Kingdom, at Buckingham Palace when the framed shot of her grandson and his wife could be seen on a table.

While Harry was operating solo Tuesday, the Duchess of Sussex has been back in the public eye since the couple announced the birth of their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, last month.

Prince Harry has made several public appearances since welcoming the birth of their first child on May 6, but the duchess had been on maternity leave to care for their newborn son before making a public appearance Saturday.

Meghan sat with Harry in a carriage during the Trooping the Colour parade in London, an annual ceremony that honors Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday.
