Prince William and Kate Middleton Release Official Engagement Portraits

Prince William and Kate Middleton released their official engagement portraits today, taken by renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino.
The formal portrait (top right) of Prince William and Middleton was shot in Clarence House, where William’s father Prince Charles lives.
It was taken on November 25, nine days after the couple announced their engagement. In the photo, Middleton can be seen wearing her sapphire and diamond engagement ring, which once belonged to Prince William’s late mother Princess Diana.
The more casual photo (bottom right) was snapped in St. James’s Palace.

“I am very happy to have been asked to cover this historic moment that the whole world was waiting for. They are in their prime and brimming with happiness,” say Testino. He adds, ”I have never felt so much joy as when I see them together.”
The couple is set to wed on April 29, 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London.
