Prince William and Kate Middleton 10th anniversary: A look at their iconic and truly ROYAL moments
It seems like it was just yesterday when 29-year-old Kate Middleton walked down the aisle in her now-iconic Alexander McQueen gown to marry Prince William. But believe it or not 10 years have passed since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tied the knot in a ceremony performed by the Archbishop of Canterbury at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011. Since then a lot has transpired in the couple's life. They had three children, took on more royal duties, lost loved ones, but one thing that remained constant is their love for each other.
The two official portraits released by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge bears testimony to it. The two new portraits were clicked this week at Kensington Palace by celebrity photographer Chris Floyd. In the first photograph, the duke and duchess can be seen holding hands with their official residence filled with trees and greenery acting as the stunning backdrop. Kate can be seen sporting a beautiful long-sleeved floral blue dress from the brand Ghost London. She previously wore this dress during an official tour to Pakistan in 2019. While the duke tries to match up to his wife's impressive style game in his blue jumper. In the second photo, the duke and duchess share a smiling embrace on the palace grounds. Kate's sapphire engagement ring steals the show. In both the pictures, one can sense the immense love and respect the couple seems to have for each other.
