LONDON, ENGLAND – APRIL 29: TRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge smile following their marriage at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011 in London, England. The marriage of the second in line to the British throne was led by the Archbishop of Canterbury and was attended by 1900 guests, including foreign Royal family members and heads of state. Thousands of well-wishers from around the world have also flocked to London to witness the spectacle and pageantry of the Royal Wedding.

Unlike Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who’ve always been publicly affectionate with each other, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s PDA moments are few and far between. With Prince William set to one day be king, the rules for him are far more strict than that of his younger brother, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have almost always remained professional during royal engagements and their meetings with the public.

But occasionally, if you look closely, you can see the couple putting their guard down—giving us a rare inside look into their romance. 

To celebrate their 10-year wedding anniversary—they married on April 29th, 2011 at Westminster Abbey—Prince William and Kate Middleton released two new portraits together taken earlier this week, before later releasing a video showing their family of five playing at the beach and making toasted marshmallows. 

 

In the original portraits, the pair wore coordinated blue outfits (a long-sleeved floral blue dress from Ghost London for Middleton), with the mother-of-three showing off her sapphire engagement ring, once owned by the late Princess Diana.

In celebration of the couple’s wedding anniversary—from university sweethearts to future king and queen of England—here, the five cutest moments captured of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

In August 2012, one year after their wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton got so excited during Day 6 of the London Olympic Games, they totally forgot cameras were around. The result is one of the most candid photos of them to date.

BLACHFORD LAKE, NT – JULY 5: Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wear the sweaters of the Canadian Rangers after being made honourary members on July 5, 2011 in Blatchford Lake, Northwest Territories, Canada. The newly married Royal Couple are on the sixth day of their first joint overseas tour. The 12 day visit to North America is taking in some of the more remote areas of the country such as Prince Edward Island, Yellowknife and Calgary. The Royal couple started off their tour by joining millions of Canadians in taking part in Canada Day celebrations which mark Canada’s 144th Birthday.

Months after their royal wedding, the newlyweds went on their first official holiday as a married couple to Canada in July 2011. This photo is one of the rare times they just look like any other normal pair of young and in love people.
