Prince William and Kate are celebrating a big milestone, as today marks ten years since their dreamy royal wedding on April 29, 2011.
To celebrate the occasion, the couple released two new photos with their millions of followers on Instagram and Twitter. One of them shows William and Kate in an affectionate embrace. The beautiful photograph was taken at Kensington Palace by British photographer Chris Floyd.
Prince William and Kate tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in a glorious wedding ceremony that was attended by 1,900 guests, including celebrities David and Victoria Beckham, Sir Elton John, Joss Stone and Guy Ritchie. It was followed by a procession to Buckingham Palace where the newlyweds shared a kiss on the balcony in front of delighted crowds and cameras.
Kate looked stunning on the day in an Alexander McQueen wedding dress created by Sarah Burton. She and Burton worked closely on the design of the gown. “Miss Middleton chose British brand Alexander McQueen for the beauty of its craftsmanship and its respect for traditional workmanship and the technical construction of clothing,” the Palace revealed in a statement at the time.
Since that day, the couple has welcomed three children – Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 3.
To mark Prince William and Kate’s 10th wedding anniversary, on Friday 30th April, BBC will air a documentary that will look back at the highlights of this royal celebration.
