The royals tend to celebrate their anniversary in private. Last year, for their ninth anniversary, William and Kate remained at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, where they had been isolating with their three children during the coronavirus lockdown.

Prince William and Kate tied the knot on 29 April 2011 in a fairytale ceremony at Westminster Abbey and were given the titles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate looked stunning in a lace and satin wedding dress, designed by Sarah Burton, the creative director for Alexander McQueen and was loaned the Cartier Halo tiara from the Queen. William wore his Irish Guards Mounted Officer's uniform on his wedding day.

The couple then treated the large crowds that had gathered on The Mall to not one, but two kisses as they appeared on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the ceremony.
