Prince William and Kate Middleton are set to marry next year. View photos of the couple’s time together. Plus,
full coverage of William and Kate.
Prince William and his fiancee, Kate Middleton, released two of their engagement photographs to the press late Saturday. A casual shot shows the couple embracing, and the more formal portrait features the prince and princess-to-be facing one another in the Cornwall Room of St. James's Palace in London. The pictures were taken by fashion photographer Mario Testino, and Kate did her own makeup. Testino is famous for his photos of the royal family, including Princess Diana. "I am very happy to have been asked to cover this historic moment that the whole world was waiting for," Testino said. "They are in their prime and brimming with happiness.”
