HELLO! Insider: Reliving Prince William and Kate's 10th wedding anniversary

Camera Press photographer Chris Floyd had the honour of taking the portraits. Chris's career has spanned nearly 30 years and has seen his work grace the pages of publications including Vogue, Vanity Fair and Harpers Bazaar. He has also shot advertising campaigns for the likes of Apple, British Airways and Sony, and has been selected several times for the National Portrait Gallery's Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize.

"The day I visited Cambridge for the first time in my life was also the day I was approached to photograph the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for their tenth wedding anniversary," said Chris. "It was a thrill to spend some time with them at Kensington Palace, especially as the Duchess is a rather keen photographer."

HELLO! understands that William and Kate will be celebrating the day in private. They may choose to have a special meal out now that restaurants and pubs are officially open for outdoor seating, but it's likely that William and Kate will celebrate at home where they can have complete privacy.

Their anniversary plans may also be fairly muted given that the royal family have recently ended their mourning period for the Queen's late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh.

For their first wedding 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.
