Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated their engagement with a pair of official snapshots showing the couple how they truly are — at ease and completely in love.
The pair opted to take the traditional engaged couple route in anticipation of their royal wedding, going for variety in a classic set of two poses including wardrobe changes. The first of the royal engagement pictures captured the casual side of the duo as they dressed down in jeans and shirts, smiles spread widely across their faces while they stood in each other’s arms.
The second was a bit more royal, if you will, featuring Prince William and Kate Middleton in the Council Chamber linked to Clarence House, which is Prince Charles’ residence. Kate went with a simple white Reiss dress while William donned a Turnbull and Asser suit.
The official pictures were released by Prince William’s office and were reportedly snapped by photographer Mario Testino.
The Peruvian fashion photographer has taken many photos of royalty including a few famous pieces of the late Princess Diana.
According to Testino, the newly engaged pair seemed “in their prime and brimming with happiness” during the photo session on November 25.
All eyes will be on Prince William and Kate Middleton as they prepare for their April 29, 2011 wedding at Westminster Abbey in London.
