Prince William and Kate became one of the most iconic couples in the world when they married on 29 April 2011 in a breathtaking royal wedding. The Westminster Abbey ceremony was as heartfelt as it was grand, with both bride and groom having the support of their siblings – Prince Harry as William's best man and Pippa Middleton, Kate's sister, as the bride's maid of honour.
