Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Loved Their Iconic Rain Photo as Much as We All Did

How could they not? It's LEGENDARY.

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry definitely saw their iconic rain photo.
  • Members of their team reached out to the photographer who took the images and said that they were "very happy" with how it came out.

Remember the *moment* Meghan Markle and Prince Harry (opens in new tab) had in the rain? You know the one. When it was like the entire world stood still so they could get the most perfect royal photo of all time? Yes, that one. If for some reason you don't have a single clue what I'm talking about, please take a look at this glorious masterpiece:

As it turns out, Meghan and Harry loved this stunning picture as much as we all did (I legit have a print of it on my desk), according to the photographer, Samir Hussein. “The picture that I took of Harry and Meghan in the rain recently, I’ve never had a reaction to a picture like that one,” he told Us Weekly (opens in new tab). “In terms of the reaction I’ve had from people, that’s got to be the most iconic from that point of view. I spoke to some of their team and they were really happy about it and talking about it.”

Sadly, Samir won't be able to capture as many moments of Meghan and Harry like this in the future now that they've stepped back from their senior royal duties (opens in new tab). “I’m really disappointed that I won’t get to photograph them so much anymore,” he added. “I’ve really, really enjoyed photographing them. I’m going to miss photographing them.”

Looks like we'll just have to settle for grainy paparazzi pics of Meghan and Harry now that they're in Los Angeles (opens in new tab).
