This year in April Prince William and Kate Middleton celebrated their tenth wedding anniversary, with the royal couple releasing two wonderful photos to mark the occasion. For their big milestone, thousands of royal fans sent the happy couple well-wishes, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thanking the fans by sending out cards of their own to each and every one of them.
One royal watcher on Twitter, @Cherylsmilesx, shared the card that the royals sent out to their fans, which featured a variation of one of the previously released photographs.
One of the photographs featured William looking lovingly at his wife as the two sat in their Kensington Palace. The other one, which was posted on Twitter, shows the couple looking at the camera, with the Duke of Cambridge having his arms lovingly around his wife.
The post wrote: “Thank you @KensingtonRoyal for the beautiful thank you photo of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge,” Cheryl wrote, adding a blue heart emoji and “#royalanniversary”. Fans were overjoyed by the fact that the couple had responded to each and every one of them, with most of them going to Twitter to praise the two royals, writing things such as “Such a beautiful picture.” and “How I miss receiving royal replies so much.”
Another one wrote: “This is a sincerely happy and stable couple,” while a third paid a beautiful tribute to the couple.
They said: “Been together for 2 decades and with 3 kids, it is a fact that they kiss and cuddle and make love all the time but photos like this with so little and subtle skinship always makes me.”
The two beautiful photographs are the work of Camera Press photographer Chris Floyd. He has a quite successful career spanning 30 years, with his work being featured in publications such as Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar.
He has also collaborated on advertising campaigns for companies like Apple, British Airways and Sony, with his work often being selected for the National Portrait Gallery’s Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize.
“The day I visited Cambridge for the first time in my life was also the day I was approached to photograph Prince William And Kate for their tenth wedding anniversary,” he said.
“It was a thrill to spend some time with them at Kensington Palace, especially as the Duchess is a rather keen photographer.”
