To mark the occasion, the couple released two touching portraits taken by photographer Chris Floyd at Kensington Palace. In the first, they sit smiling on a tree trunk. Kate wears a light blue wrap dress by fashion brand Ghost, whereas William has donned a periwinkle sweater. It’s a classic colour combination for the duo—in November 2010, they announced their engagement while wearing blue, too. “10 years,” they captioned the snap simply on social media.
A second photo shows the Duchess nestled in her husband’s arms. She appears to be laughing as William beams at the camera. “Taken this week ahead of The Duke and Duchess’ 10th wedding anniversary,” Kensington Palace wrote.
Their April 29, 2011 wedding at Westminster Abbey was a spectacle of a lifetime, watched by millions. Kate walked down the aisle in a custom—and now iconic—Alexander McQueen dress by Sarah Burton. Afterwards, they paraded via carriage through the streets of London, and kissed on the Buckingham Palace Balcony as R.A.F. planes flew overhead.
To say a lot has happened the last decade after that wedding is a grand understatement. They’ve had three children—George, Charlotte, and Louis. They’ve undertaken several overseas tours. And they’ve navigated through an increasingly turbulent time for the royal family, marked by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure and the death of Prince Philip. Yet they’ve remained together throughout it all.
