Mario Testino

On the occassion of the christening of his little sister Princess Charlotte two weeks ago, a two-year-old Prince George very nearly stole the show.

Looking as cute-as-a-button in a red and white smock designed by Rachel Riley (the €100 piece inevitably sold out within 24 hours) he waved to the crowds, chatted to his great-granny, peered lovingly into Charlotte's pram, and generally proved that he's going to be a serious heart-breaker in another couple of decades. 

Understandably, the accompanying snaps of the day which were released by the British royals after the event, prompted oodles of ooos and aaas from around the globe. 

Taken by the famed Mario Testino, they showed Kate, 33, and Wills, also 33, with their prince and princess in a variety of casual and natural poses.

But if we assumed that we'd been given our fill of gorgeous shots of the picture-perfect Cambridges – how wrong we were!

For Mr Testino himself took to Facebook this afternoon to add to the collection.

The image shows a proud-as-punch Prince William holding on tight to his son as George leans in towards the lens, peering at the camera with his big, brown eyes. 

His lovely mop of blond tresses are swept away from his face, and he shows off a mouthful of white teeth too.

The toddler turns two tomorrow – with a party being thrown for him at his family's rural abode, Amner Hall. 

Peru-native Mario even wished the little royal a happy birthday in the accompanying caption. "The Duke Of Cambridge with his son Prince George, who turns two years old tomorrow," he wrote in both English and his native Spanish.

This photograph captures a very happy moment on what was a special day for The Duke and Duchess and their family. They are very pleased to share this picture as they celebrate Prince George's second birthday.

Kensington Palace said today in a statement: "The photograph shows The Duke of Cambridge holding Prince George in the gardens at Sandringham House.

"It was part of the series of official photographs taken by Mario Testino following Princess Charlotte's baptism on Sunday July 5."

Happy birthday, little prince! Here's to many more amazing photographs.


The Royal Family celebrated Princess Charlotte's christening on Sunday with a church ceremony in Norfolk.

Although the public and the media were permitted to gather on the walkway into the church's gardens, the ceremony was a private affair for family and friends only. Luckily for us though, Kensington Palace has just published the official shots from the christening, taken by renowned celebrity photographer Mario Testino.

As well as Prince Charles, Camilla Parker-Bowles, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh, the family event was also attended by Kate's sister Pippa, her brother James and her parents Michael and Carole. The family gathered at Sandringham House afterwards to celebrate the happy day:

In keeping with royal tradition, little Charlotte has a grand total of five godparents – Kate’s long-time friend Sophie Carter, William's schoolfriends James Meade and Thomas van Straubenzee, Kate's cousin Adam Middleton, and Princess Diana's niece The Hon. Laura Fellowes.

We are just loving these beautiful solo shots of Kate holding Charlotte and William playing with George:


Peruvian photographer Mario has worked with the Royal Family on a number of occasions before, having photographed Prince Charles, Prince Harry and even Princess Diana.

He also took the iconic photos that Kate and William released to announce their engagement back in December 2010:

We can't wait to see more photos of the family as little Charlotte and George grow up.



World-renowned photographer, Mario Testino, is to photograph Princess Charlotte’s christening this coming Sunday.

The Vogue photographer has shot almost every celebrity under the sun, from Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid to Kate Moss and Brad Pitt

The 60-year-old Peruvian photographer released a statement saying, “I am overwhelmed and honoured to be chosen to document this occasion and to carry on the documentation of the family that is the soul of this country, a country that has given me so much.”

The upcoming event is by no means Mr Testino’s first time photographing the Royals. He was the photographer that took the official royal engagement photos of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

He was also responsible for the beautiful Vanity Fair cover shoot of Princess Diana in 1997. Aside from the royals, Mario can count all the top fashion designers and celebrities as his clients.

The christening is set to take place this Sunday in a church at Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham estate in Norfolk. While it will undoubtedly be a big family affair, Prince Harry is expected not to be in attendance as he is scheduled to be on the way to Africa at the time.

We are already SO excited to see the photos!
