Happy anniversary Kate and William! Kensington Palace leads celebrations with this pic
THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are celebrating their seventh wedding anniversary today and Kensington Palace led anniversary celebrations with a cute throwback photo of Prince William and Kate on their wedding as the lovebirds mark seven years as husband and wife as a family of five.
Palace officials took to Twitter to share an adorable snap of the pair in a blue vintage car with a ‘JU5T WED’ registration plate and decorated with balloons taken moments after they tied the knot in London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011.
With the sweet picture Kensington Palace tweeted to its 1.33million followers: “Seven years ago today – thank you for all the lovely messages on The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding anniversary!”
The couple wed on April 29, 2011 and anniversary celebrations today are sure to be low key as the day falls just a week after the couple welcomed their third child, Prince Louis, into the world on St George’s Day, weighing 8lb 7oz.
Now the hands-on parents of a growing brood, with three children under the age of five, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have come along way since they were fresh-faced students at St Andrews University in Scotland.
The couple’s first meeting at St Andrews, where they were both studying Art History, marked the start of a blossoming romance.
And their relationship soon became public in 2004 when they were pictured skiing together in Klosters, Switzerland.
Engagement rumours soon began to swirl when the then-Kate Middleton was spotted kissing Prince William on the slopes as the pair enjoyed another Swiss holiday in 2006.
Following a brief separation the couple were soon back together and in November 2010 the whole world revelled in delight when the handsome prince popped the question with a glittering 12-carat sapphire ring that belonged to his late mother Princess Diana.
Thankfully, the couple were back on track soon enough and
They wed five months later on April 29 and became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – a wedding present from the Queen.
A year later, Kate became pregnant with George, born July 2013, with Charlotte following in May 2015.
The newest addition, Louis, to the family was welcomed into the world just six days ago on Monday at 11.01am.
To mark their seven-year anniversary, royal expert, Richard Fitzwilliams told Express.co.uk: “William’s marriage to Kate which celebrates its seventh anniversary is truly, as Shakespeare’s sonnet has it, ‘the marriage of true minds’.”
