Meghan Markle and Prince Harry pose in costume in stunning portrait


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are all smiles in a recently released portrait.

In the sophisticated black and white image, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are both dressed in their new home in Montecito, California. Meghan wears an elegant fitted blazer, a plain white t-shirt and pants with her hair in her iconic waves. Meanwhile, Prince Harry pairs his suit with a button-down, tie-less oxford. The royal couple look relaxed and at ease in the portrait, with the Duchess apparently pictured half-laughing.

The image was captured by Matt Sayles, an Los Angeles-based photographer who focuses on creating images that “reflect a more inclusive image of beauty” and highlight stories of under-represented communities. The snapshot coincides with news of the couple’s upcoming stint as hosts and hosts of their TIME100 virtual conversation, titled “Engineering a Better World.”

A source close to the Sussexes tells that the couple were personally involved in choosing the theme, curating the topics, and choosing the guests for their respective episode as part of the TIME100 virtual conversations. The Duke and Duchess are expected to make opening and closing remarks as well as help moderate discussions with high-level experts, advocates, online creators and journalists to discuss the pursuit of a “more compassionate, secure and trustworthy digital world”.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, both TIME100 alumni, are among the most influential voices in the world,” said Dan Macsai, TIME TIME100 editor and editorial director, in a statement. “We look forward to working with them to raise critical voices and highlight real solutions to some of the most pressing problems of our time. “
