Royal Engagement Portraits

From William & Kate and Charles & Di to Elizabeth & Philip, take a look back at how the Windsors
commemorated their happy news


Nearly a month after announcing their engagement, Prince William and Kate Middleton released two official portraits, taken by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino. For their formal photo, the couple fittingly posed at the historic Council Chamber at St. James's Palace, surrounded by portraits of William's ancestors, including William III, Mary II and Karl Wilhelm Ferdinand, Duke of Brunswick-Wolfenbuttel.
