The pair celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary last year

The loved-up couple married in 2011 and presented Charles proposed to his beloved with the most sentimental ring.

Princess Diana's brother opted for a trilogy engagement ring, featuring three round diamonds on a silver band, which was actually a family heirloom. It was once given to Charles' great grandmother, Countess Margaret Spencer.

The pair wed in a intimate ceremony at Althorp House in June of the same year, four months after Charles popped the question. The pair celebrated their eleventh wedding anniversary last year.
