Inside Kate Middleton and Prince William’s 20-year relationship, as told through adorable photos
Since meeting as university students 20 years ago, Prince William and Kate Middleton have come a long way – here are some of their most heartfelt photos together.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are approaching their 11th wedding anniversary, but their love story dates back much further.
The couple had been together for ten years when they married on April 29, 2011, at Westminster Abbey.
Kate and William first met at St Andrews University in Scotland, and their friendship blossomed into something more than friendship a few months later.
“William wasn’t there for quite a while at first, he wasn’t there from Freshers’ Week onwards, so it took a little time for us to get to know each other,” Kate said, “but we did become very close friends from quite early on.”
In early 2002, the now mother-of-three reportedly swung it for the young prince after she starred in a student fashion show.
Since reuniting in 2007, Royal fans have watched William and Kate’s Cambridge family grow stronger and stronger.
“It was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up,” the future king once said of the break-up.
The wedding of the second in line to the British throne, led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, was witnessed by nearly 2,000 guests at Westminster Abbey.
Many more well-wishers from all over the world have flocked to London to witness the Royal Wedding’s spectacle and pageantry.
Judi James, a body language expert, believes that photos of William and Kate show how much their bond has grown.
“We know they are in love and we know they share a sense of humour,” Judi said of a photo of the couple at Wimbledon. “But the body language between William and Kate here raises that combination of existing bonds to a whole new level.”
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were photographed at events during the London 2012 Olympic Games a year after their wedding.
The most joyful of these is when they celebrate Great Britain’s gold medal and world record-setting performance in the Men’s Team Sprint Track Cycling final.
On August 2, 2012 in London, they were photographed hugging after watching Philip Hindes, Jason Kenny, and Sir Chris Hoy compete at the Velodrome.
