Mr Harriman said on social media: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moments before attending the opening ceremony of OneYoungWorld last month.”
The first snap showed Harry and Meghan looking directly at the camera with interlocked fingers.
The Duchess was wearing a red suit and a matching red blouse.
The Duke donned a black suit and tie ahead of the event.
The second image, which was released in black-and-white, showed the Sussexes holding hands at a side angle.
However, a body language expert has suggested the photographs suggest Harry and Meghan have closely bonded and appear intimate.
Judi James told the Mirror: “No more lying on the ground under tall trees in flowing dresses and bare feet, gazing up at the clouds for this couple, these new official portraits are pure power and status, with a very upright Meghan closest to the camera and Harry clinging to her index finger and grinning like a proud and supportive fan.
“When they stand side by side they ignore the camera, unlike our royals who were photographed staring straight down the lens.
“For Meghan and Harry, it’s more for us to admire a duo whose gaze seems fixed on a distant horizon, with a smile of what looks like optimism and calm from Meghan and a slightly more surly look from Harry.
“These look like poses for a business magazine and they seem set to approach their global future together, hence the handclasp that involves entwined fingers to register intimacy and close bonding.”
Another royal expert claimed that the images were released at a “fascinating time”.
Daily Mail diary editor Richard Eden said: “This was released soon after a photograph was published by Buckingham Palace of the new royal ‘Fab Four’: King Charles, Camilla, Prince William and Catherine.”
