Prince Charles Strikes a Pose

Prince Charles will make an appearance in Vogue magazine.

Fashion photographer Mario Testino — known for his depictions of women including the late Princess Diana, Charles' former wife — photographed the heir to the British throne at his Highgrove country estate, said a spokeswoman in Charles' office at St. James Palace.

"He was very happy to do it and got on with Mario very well," the spokeswoman said on traditional condition of anonymity. "He enjoyed the shoot."

The spokeswoman said four photographs of Charles would be included in the issue of Vogue coming out on Friday. Two will also be displayed as part of an exhibition of Testino's work opening at the National Portrait Gallery in London next month, she added.

The Vogue pictures include one of Charles in a charcoal gray suit and another of him relaxing with his rare Welsomer hens.

Testino photographed Diana shortly before she died in a 1997 car crash.
