Renowned portrait and fashion photographer Testino, a favorite of William's late mother, Princess Diana, also shot William and Catherine's iconic engagement photos. The photographer captured two sweet candid portraits of the foursome, which were published on the British monarchy's Facebook page and Kensington Palace Twitter account.
Kate smiles down at a wide-eyed Charlotte in one snapshot and, in another, George smiles at the camera in a black-and-white candid with his dad. When George was baptized in October 2013, photographer Jason Bell was given the honor of shooting the portraits.
The palace thanked Testino for his service upon publishing the photos on Thursday, and he tweeted: "I am honoured to be chosen to take these portraits on the occasion of Princess Charlotte's christening."
Hundreds of royal-watchers crowded St. Mary Magdalene Church on the queen's private estate Sunday to celebrate the christening of Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.
Just like George, the young princess has a litany of godparents: Kate's cousin Adam Middleton, William's cousin Lady Laura Fellowes, Kate's friend Sophie Carter and William's friends Thomas van Straubenzee and James Meade.
Testino's portraits are the first formal images of the Cambridges. Catherine released early images of her little prince and princess, which she shot herself, five weeks after Charlotte's birth.
