They said: "Been together for 2 decades and with 3 kids, it is a fact that they kiss and cuddle and make love all the time but photos like this with so little and subtle skinship always makes me."

"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," he said.

"It was a thrill to spend some time with them at Kensington Palace, especially as the Duchess is a rather keen photographer."
