There's a 'mistake' in Harry and Meghan's official royal wedding photos — can you spot it?

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's royal wedding was a beautiful affair, and fans were delighted when Kensington Palace released three official wedding portraits, taken by photographer Alexi Lubomirski.

The photos included a black and white portrait featuring the couple, in a similar style to their engagement photos.

As captivated as fans were by the photographs, the discerning among them were quick to spot a seeming omission in the two group photos featuring the bridesmaids and page boys.

Here are the photos in question:

As stunning as the group portraits may be, fans noticed that in one photograph, four-year-old Ivy Mulroney and three-year-old Florence van Cutsem are clearly shown sharing a bouquet, while in the shot with the senior royals, Florence — Prince Harry's goddaughter — isn't holding a bouquet at all.

While some social media users wondered if the bouquet was missing by accident, it turns out there's a simple reason behind the lack of flowers: during the wedding ceremony, Ivy — the daughter of Markle's best friend, Jessica Mulroney — was given the important role of holding Markle's bouquet once she reached the altar. 

When it came time to take the official wedding portraits, Ivy therefore shared Florence's bouquet in one photo, and then held on to Florence's bouquet for the other.

Markle's green-and-white bridal bouquet was described by the palace as "gentle, ethereal, relaxed," and featured lily of the valley, scented sweet peas, and allegedly some flowers handpicked by Prince Harry himself.
