From the horse-drawn carriage to the kiss seen ’round the world, William & Kate’s wedding was the most romantic day ever — and we’re just days away from their one-year anniversary April 29!
In front of a crowd of 2,000 — plus the two billion more in front of their TVs — Kate Middleton and Prince William tied the knot at Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011. After a nine-year courtship, William, 29, and Kate, 30, were finally husband and wife!
Nearly stealing the show was sister Pippa Middleton, Kate’s maid of honor, who stunned in a white Sarah Burton gown. Pippa, 28, and a gaggle of little bridesmaids helped the blushing bride walk down the aisle with her nearly 8-foot long train.
At the altar, best man Prince Harry, 27, stood by brother Will’s side, looking dashing in his black uniform with gold details.
Will and Kate said their “I do”s in front of a guest-list of more than 50 members of the Royal Family (including Princess Beatrice in her now infamous hat), and celebrities such as David and Victoria Beckham, Joss Stone, and Sir Elton John.
After the ceremony, the happy couple — now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — shared not one but two kisses on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in front of a massive cheering crowd.
Not everyone was impressed by the newlywed’s first kiss, however. Adorable little Grace Van Cutsem, then 3, was seen pouting on the side!
HollywoodLifers, can you believe it’s been a whole year since the wedding of the century?
