Prince William and Kate have traditionally always celebrated their anniversary in private, but they will have the option of enjoying a special meal when restaurants and pubs reopen for outdoor dining from 12 April.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson unveiled his roadmap out of lockdown on Monday, with four key stages. The easing of said restrictions however is subject to change depending on data.

For their first anniversary in 2012, William and Kate spent the weekend in Suffolk, where they attended the wedding of the Duchess' school friend, Hannah Gillingham, the day before.

Kate cooked her husband fish en papillote – fish wrapped in parchment paper – as a nod to the traditional first wedding anniversary gift of paper.
