Good question. I think I saw one of Princess Anne's engagement photos with the Queen and the DOE, though I don't know whether that photo was official or not. I guess I was really curious to see the Middletons standing next to Prince Charles and the DOC.

There where same photos with Anne, Mark, the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh and Mark's parents. But i think they where not official and don't know they occasion on which they where taken.

Same here, Stefan. It was just the only example that occured to me. Back to our topic: I tend to believe that these are going to be the only official engagement photos. If there were more, they would have been released yesterday.

Think so too. But perhpas we will get somre formell photos before the Wedding. For Charles and Diana, Andrew and Sarah and Anne and mark there where other official pics before the Wedding (with the woman in evening gowns). I think only for Edward and Sophie there where no official pics released.

Mario Testino is such a great photographer.

I agree. The photos are lovely. I am so very happy and excited for them. My one concern is that she appears washed out in the white or cream dress she wore in the more formal photo and hopefully either she will be sun kissed from a vacation before her big day or the designer will look at the photo to see how the color of Kate's dress doesn't particularly favor her complexion. Otherwise, she's GORGEOUS and will make a beautiful bride. I can't wait for their special day.

Meanwhile, I am sure we will see more formal photos of them together before the wedding, not in a formal sitting, but perhaps at formal events, for example her accompanying him at a charity or some other event.

Are there more photos or just these two published? I was thinking that maybe 3 or 4 would be released unless I was thinking of other photo-shoots that other families take.

Beautiful pictures. They look so happy. Especially the picture where they are hugging each other is great.

Wonderful picture! It looks to me as though Kate's hair is a tad shorter than in the announcement pictures.

One thing that has come across very much in all the posts here and in the related articles/links from all over the world is the key phrase "in love" that has been used to describe these two young people.

I have to smile remembering all the months and months of speculation and observances that there was no "spark" or love noticeable between these two. Now its not only visible but actually hits us smack dab in the face. It makes me realize just how private these two can be.

The second one where they are hugging each other is truly perfection. They both look so happy but Kate looks over the moon. She looks beautiful.

Lovely pictures, the second one is sooo sweet, "prince charming who is protecting his princess"
This one more formal is for me too photoshoped - the background looks strange.
Anyway I'm glad to see these cute photos, they seem to be very happy couple.

They look so madly in love. Kate is perfect for William! They look so happy. Whoever said that she looks like Mary, please stop, she looks like herself. She is a beauty in her own right and does not compare to anyone else. Just a lovely couple. God bless them always.

Gorgeous pictures. They look so happy and in love......I'm beyond thrilled that they're finally taking that next step.

I agree with your observation.
I cannot try and imagine how difficult that must have been. But then I am not a person to hide affection. Couldn't even if I tried.

I agree Osipi, they were always so restrained in public and them to see them so lovingly embrace each other is remarkable and extremely delicious. I thought they would have released these photos earlier but I love them. I love anything Testino does.

What wonderful perfect photographs! First, a really nice, simple formal photo and then a wonderfully loving photo, which really does show us the real feelings of love and fun between the couple.

I have no doubt at all that Mario Testino should do the official wedding photos!!!
