LONDON, ENGLAND (CBS/AP)  – Britain’s Prince William and Cate Middleton are looking relaxed, poised and very much in love in a pair of official photos released to mark their engagement.

One of images shows the couple, dressed in jeans and casual tops, smiling in each other’s arms.

The other (on the right), more formal, depicts them standing together in a state room at St. James’ Palace.

The pictures, released today by the prince’s office, were taken by Peruvian fashion photographer Mario Testino. He’s a royal family favorite who captured some of the most iconic images of William’s late mother, Princess Diana.

Testino says the couple appeared “in their prime and brimming with happiness” when he photographed them on Nov. 25.

William and Middleton, both 28, announced last month that they will marry on April 29 at Westminster Abbey in London.

    They make a beautiful couple. I have always admired Princess Dianna and I have always watched as the boys have grown up. I would very much like to send a little gift to them when they get married. It won’t be much but it is just something I would like to do.
