Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, will be photographed by her grandmother and namesake’s favourite photographer – Mario Testino – on the occasion of her christening this Sunday July 5. 

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were pictured by the legendary photographer for their official engagement and have expressed their “delight” that Testino will “help capture this important moment for their family and look forward to sharing the photographs with the public”.

The christening service is due to take place at St Mary Magdalene Church, Sandringham, and crowds of well wishers are expected to turn out to show their support, and get a sneak peek of the princess on her special day, before the palace release the official Testino shots. 

"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.” Said Testino of his invitation to capture the special day.
