Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, you’ll know that Kate Middleton and Prince William are kind of a big deal. Not only are they one of the most famous and most popular couples within the Royal Family, but one day Prince William will become King, and Kate will rule by his side — which is pretty awesome. Have you ever wondered how a Duke and Duchess celebrate their ninth wedding anniversary, though?
Their Big Day
On April 29th, 2011, the world watched in wonder as Kate Middleton made her way down the aisle of Westminster Abbey to meet her Prince at the altar. The gorgeous royal wedding ceremony was watched by millions across the globe, and fans couldn’t help but “ooh” and “aah” as the couple exchanged their vows to become husband and wife. It was a big day for the Royal Family as a whole, but it was also a big day for the couple, as this day marked the first day of the rest of their royal lives.
Celebrating Their Anniversary
Despite the fact that their wedding day was one of glitz, glamour, and extravagance, there’s no doubt about the fact that their wedding anniversaries have been anything but that. As fairly low-key people, they have opted to keep their celebrations as quiet as possible. Over the years, they have either gone away on little breaks across the UK, they have attended royal engagements, or they have awaited the arrival of one of their children. In fact, this year was no different.
Keeping Things Quiet
For their ninth wedding anniversary, the royal couple didn’t have many options when it came to their celebrations. While we’re sure they would have kept things low-key anyway, they were forced to do so due to lockdown requirements in place around the United Kingdom – as there are across the globe.
Sometimes it’s nice to keep things quiet, though, right?
