Sunday is going to be a very special day for Princess Charlotte -- it's her christening party. Kate Middleton and Prince William's 2-month-old daughter will, naturally, have a baptism fit for royalty complete with one of the world's best photographers to capture the beautiful moments. It has been revealed that Princess Charlotte's photos will be taken by Mario Testino, the famed fashion photographer who has photographed stars like Madonna and Kate Moss. Along with the Royal family.

This is quite fancy. A representative of the Royal family told Us Weekly:

Mario Testino will take the official photographs of the christening party following Princess Charlotte's baptism on Sunday. Mr. Testino has photographed members of the Royal Family on several previous occasions and took the official photographs of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the occasion of their engagement.

The Duke and Duchess are delighted that Mario Testino will help capture this important moment for their family and look forward to sharing the photographs with the public. Throughout his career, Mr. Testino has also photographed The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry, and Diana, Princess of Wales.

They really love their tradition, don't they those Royals. I love it. We can't just have some iPhone photos taken by mom and dad. We need the best, the top of the line, the finest of them all to capture Princess C. Testino said he was "honored" to photograph Charlotte and was thankful to the "country that has given me so much." I also love that he photographed Princess Diana. His work is truly beautiful -- not that it would be hard to capture the sweetness that is the little Princess. I am really looking forward to seeing the photos. It's almost like it's her first fashion photo shoot.

What do you think of Testino photographing Princess Charlotte for her christening?
