Kate and William Celebrate Their 5th Wedding Anniversary

It has been five years since your favourite royals tied the knot.

Catherine Middleton and Prince William married at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011.

Ever since, we've fervently watched on while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed two little ones, made flawless fashion statements and seamless royal visits. 

We've cooed over Prince George's chubby cheeks, and Princess Charlotte's cute smile. We've all secretly hoped we could have a go at Kate's wardrobe and take a trip to her hairdresser. 

On their 5th wedding anniversary, we take a look back at the fairytale romance of our favourite royal couple.
