More on the royal wedding

The official engagement photographs for Prince William and Kate Middleton have been taken by a renowned fashion photographer favoured by his mother.

A royal aide confirmed that Mario Testino photographed the couple last month for images to be released shortly.

He captured glamorous shots of Princess Diana for Vanity Fair magazine published just before she died in 1997.

"She said to me at the time [that] her children had said to her it was the most 'her' they had seen."

Since those iconic pictures, Diana's children have turned to him on many occasions.

He snapped William on his 21st and Harry on his 20th birthday.
