Official statement about the portraits in this article overall the same info as the Telegraph but nice to have official confirmation. I hope they weren't wearing the same outfits as the engagement photocall though I'm sure the courtiers wouldn't have allowed that to happen. I'm only saying this since they said the photos were taken last month after the engagement and I'm wondering if maybe it was the same day as the announcement.

Those are the pictures for which you have used Charles/Diana and Victoria/Daniel's examples as reference, aren't they?

Yes they are I am so happy they decided to do them, I was a bit afraid William may take a different route and opt not to do them.

ETOnline is saying they were taken after they did the photocall

Since this is official I thought I'd post this here

Nothing official on who will officiate at royal wedding yet. I'm told there will be roles for Archbishop of Canterbury and Bishop of London.

Lets not get caught in the whole Diana / Testino angle, Charles has often used Testino as well for pictures of him and the boys, and of him and Camilla.

Testino is no surprise and he is a wonderful choice.

Methinks the boy William is, forgive me, too mother oriented. Next thing you know, CM's wedding gown will be reworked from Diana's gown. Eeeek, I know I'm probably way out in left field, but I FEEL it. Apologies upfront to those who are offended!

I don't understand why you are making this comment in relation to that article of Mario Testino taking the official engagement pictures...
But more importantly:
Who are you to judge how this man chooses to honour his late mother?

You are aware that Mario Testino has photographed hundreds if not thousands of people other than Diana, including Charles and Camilla, right? You are also aware that Testino taking their engagement pictures does not in anyway mean that William wants to marry his mother or is mother-obsessed, right? Diana's funeral was at Westminster Abbey, but that's also where all coronations take place. If William's future coronation takes place there, does that mean he's still Diana-oriented? Should he and Kate get married in a damn tube station or in Hyde Park so that no one anywhere at any time accuses either of them of being obsessed with his dead mother?

Sakes alive, woman.

I don't think PW has a mother thing. Testino is a wonderful choice and I cannot wait for the pictures!

I was thinking if Kate is up and getting ready at 7 am London time, that's 2 am for me here. I'm sure the coverage will be starting well before its time for Kate to head to the Abbey and personally I don't plan on missing one minute of it! Now if I can just figure out where to send my "Mr. Remote" hubby for the day.....

you mean 1981? :P

Right know I work as a Freelancer, so I have a very flexible work schedule. I plan to follow the whole thing. :)
Btw, anyones know if the time has been confirmed? I believe I read somewhere 11:30, but I'm not quite sure about it.

I have not heard a specific time. But I am sure tv stations here (US) will be covering the whole event. At least I hope so. Because I will record it. If not I will watch it here on my computer just like I did Victoria and Daniels. And I bet they will sell copies of the ceremony on DVDs.

I imagine Kate will be up much sooner than 7:00 am. Most brides have trouble sleeping the night before their wedding day, and this will be nothing even close to a normal wedding day! I will be up as soon as the first coverage starts and will watch it to the end. I have already have the week off so I will be able watch all the coverage leading up to the wedding and the day itself. Yay! My husband will just be laughing at me as he leaves for work.

I think what I am going to do is start counting up the hours of football he watches on the weekend and make notes.. then when April 29th comes, I'll just be claiming my "share".
