Prince William will honor his late mother, Princess Diana, in a very special way at Princess Charlotte's christening this weekend.
The 33-year-old Duke of Cambridge has chosen Diana's favorite photographer, Mario Testino, to take the official portraits of the royal family at his daughter's baptism on Sunday, July 5, a statement released by Kensington Palace revealed.

"I am overwhelmed and honored to be chosen to document this occasion and to carry on the documentation of the family that is the soul of this country, a country that has given me so much," Mario, 60, said.
The photographer also previously took Princess Diana's famous Vanity Fair portraits and Kate and William's official engagement photos in 2011.
