Royal wedding anniversary: William and Kate’s top 10 candid moments over the years

Since the very beginning, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, have enchanted the world with their fairytale romance. From their university days to the Royal Wedding to the birth of their firstborn child, Prince George, the world has watched in excitement as the world’s favourite couple have grown in their love.


Despite their royal status, William and Kate are far from stuffy – especially when it comes to their relationship. Whether at work or at play, the charismatic twosome genuinely enjoy each other's company and, like most young people in love, are often seen laughing, joking around and enjoying sweet, candid moments together. Needless to say, their laid-back approach has endeared them to admirers around the world.

Fans got a closer look at their easygoing marriage during their tour of Australia and New Zealand last year, during which the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tried their hand at whitewater rafting, sampled local wine and otherwise acted like any other normal, happy couple – minus the throngs of waiting crowds, of course.

Who could forget Kate's triumphant win against her husband in a sailing race? When the Duchess beat William not once, but twice, during their yacht races in New Zealand, her husband joked, “We were sabotaged!”

From playful ribbing (the pair love poking public fun at one another) to dancing like no one’s watching, it’s hard not to fall in love with William and Kate.
