Mario Testino has forged a reputation as the Royal Family’s most-honoured affiliate at their most prestigious events, from capturing the Kate and William‘s big day, to photographing touching moments of Her Majesty in quiet composure. Well, these new pictures of Princess Charlotte’s christening prove exactly why he’s the royals’ favourite photographer… and now ours!
Full of genuine emotion – as though retrieved from a family photo album – yet displaying the unmistakable Testino trademark of eloquence and glamour, the official photos have been released of Princess Charlotte’s christening, and we just can’t get enough.
The photos are unreserved and offer a thoughtful insight into one of the biggest ceremonies of the year. They were released on behalf of Kensington Palace with a statement saying: “They are very happy to share these photographs and hope that everyone enjoys them as much as they do,”
Displaying broad smiles and an unmistakable affection, the only possible thing missing from the series of photographs is a distinct glow of red hair, with Prince Harry noticeably missing from the snaps. So, Testino, if you’re hoarding any more photos, we demand to see them please!
