The Prince and Princess of Wales have celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary in a beautiful and heartfelt way. The couple, who got married in 2011 at Westminster Abbey, have been together for over a decade, and their love seems to be going stronger with each passing year.
To mark the occasion, the couple shared a new photo on their official social media channels, which captured them heading on a bike ride in the countryside. The image showed them cuddled up and beaming with happiness, as they enjoyed their special day together. Alongside the photo were the words “12 years” and a red love heart emoji.
The couple's attire in the photo was quite similar to what they wore in their 2022 Christmas card, where they were seen walking with their three children, Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte, holding hands together for a country stroll. Princess Kate looked effortlessly beautiful in a pair of dark blue jeans and an elegant white blouse. Prince William sported a crisp Ralph Lauren shirt in a navy blue hue, perfectly in-keeping with Princess Kate's nautical hues. The Prince also opted for a pair of jeans, giving the couple a relaxed and casual look.
Princess of Wales's wedding dress, designed by Alexander McQueen, was one of the highlights of their wedding day. The dress featured lace long sleeves, a V-neck, and a full skirt, making Princess Kate look like a true princess on her big day. The gown was covered in handmade lace created by the Royal School of Needlework. The youngest lace-maker on the team was 19 years old at the time.
Princess of Wales's veil was also a work of art, crafted with hand-embroidered flowers and held in place by a Cartier halo tiara. The tiara was originally gifted to Queen Elizabeth on her 18th birthday and acted as Princess Kate's ‘something borrowed' on her wedding day.
As the couple waited to be joined in marriage, they exchanged a few intimate words. William told his radiant bride, “You look lovely, you look beautiful,” before joking: “This was supposed to be a small family affair.”
The couple's love story is truly inspiring, and their 12th wedding anniversary is a testament to the strength of their relationship. The photo shared by the couple on their social media channels perfectly captured the love and happiness that they share, making it a beautiful and heartfelt way to mark their special day. We wish Prince William and Princess Kate a happy anniversary and many more happy years together.
