The Royals chose the photographer Mario Testino to photograph this joyous occasion – a much loved photographer of Princess Diana – Mario Testino worked with Diana on a number of occasions with stunning results. 
The talk surrounding the release of these photos has been very much focused on the outfits chosen by Kate.  In the photo above she is wearing a Reiss dress that featured in last year’s collection promoting those with the dress to make some money in selling it on ebay, one seller describing the item as “same dress worn by Kate Middleton in the formal engagement photographs with Prince William”

In the more intimate of the two photos Kate is wearing a Whistles blouse costing £95 which is still available in store, it will no doubt already be a sell out. Wearing the stunning engagement ring which belonged to William’s mother Princess Diana of course Kate will now be compared to Diana even more however with all these high street outfit decisions Kate really is becoming a fashion icon and will undoubtedly turn into the next “People’s Princess”.  Wedding world and and the people just cant wait for the wedding – 2011 is set for big wedding fever no doubt!
