Princess Charlotte is set to get the royal treatment at her christening.
Famed photographer Mario Testino has been chosen to take the baby royal’s official photos during her christening party, Kensington Palace confirmed to Us Weekly.
“Mario Testino will take the official photographs of the christening party following Princess Charlotte’s baptism on Sunday,” a rep told Us Tuesday. “Mr. Testino has photographed members of the Royal Family on several previous occasions and took the official photographs of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the occasion of their engagement.”
Because of his familiar relationship with the Royal Family and his capturing memorable moments in their lives in the past, Kate Middleton and Prince William couldn’t be more pleased he’ll be a part of their little girl’s special day.
“The Duke and Duchess are delighted that Mario Testino will help capture this important moment for their family and look forward to sharing the photographs with the public,” the Palace’s statement included. “Throughout his career, Mr. Testino has also photographed The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry, and Diana, Prince of Wales.”
The Peruvian-British photographer said, “I am overwhelmed and honored 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.”
Along with his portfolio of work with the royals, Testino’s resume includes having photographed the likes of Madonna, Gisele Bundchen, and Kate Moss, among others.
He was also honored by Queen Elizabeth II with the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2013 for his charitable contributions.
Princess Charlotte’s christening will take place Sunday at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene in Sandringham. Along with mum and dad, big brother Prince George, 23 months, will be in attendance along with several other members of the Royal Family.
“My picture of Princes William and Harry with their father the Prince of Wales,” Testino captioned a throwback photo on Instagram Monday.
