If you've not got the time, nor patience to scroll through the thousands of images from the royal wedding, fear not.

Because there’s one photograph in particular that everyone is talking about.

Yui Mok, a photographer for Press Association, managed to capture the most heartwarming moment from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding day as they entered Windsor Castle in their carriage.

It looks like a normal image of a newly-married royal couple, right?

On closer inspection, you’ll see the couple’s bodies seem to form an almost perfect heart shape.

Notice their bodies make the top of the heart, with their arms rounding off to bring the heart to a point?

All together now, 'aww'!

After the picture went viral, Mok explained on Twitter that he took the photo as he was ‘positioned on the roof of George IV Gateway of Windsor Castle’ and the carriage procession passed directly beneath him.

‘I had less than a one-second window to take that particular shot - whilst having to focus through a metal grill I was standing over - so was happy to get anything really!’ Mok wrote.

Several Twitter users described the photo as ‘exquisite’, and many noticed the beautiful heart shape made in the shape of their bodies.

However, Mok said it was ‘purely coincidental’. He also admits he was thankful he didn’t break into a sweat while capturing the important moment.

‘I managed not to spill a drop of sweat...which wouldn't have been very nice for them being directly beneath me,’ he said, according to the Sun.

Hmm, a sweat splurge on your Givenchy dress wouldn’t exactly be ideal.

Mok was an instrumental photographer in Windsor that day, also capturing the moment the newlyweds stole a second kiss in front of the crowds.
