Mario Testino: British Royal PortraitsThe official engagement portraits of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge taken by Mario Testino are among the eight photographs of the Royal Family by the Peruvian photographer which are shown together for the first time in a free exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. All of the images were taken between 2003 and 2010 and include official commissions as well as personal photographs. Visitors can see the princes' official Christmas card from 2004 and the image taken to mark Prince Henry's 21st birthday, shown alongside a portrait of HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, commissioned by British Vogue in 2006.

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
