The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have released new photos for their 10th wedding anniversary, looking natural and happy outside Kensington Palace.

Ten years ago the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton were married at Westminister Abbey. Their wedding came after a ten-year relationship. William and Kate now have three children Prince George (7), Princess Charlotte (5), and Prince Louis (3).

The newly released anniversary photos are glamorous and glossy but very natural. The happy couple were snapped holding hands with William's mother, Princess Diana's famous sapphire and diamond engagement ring gleaming on Kate’s finger.  

Penny Junor, a Royal writer, told the PA that Duchess Catherine has supported Prince William hugely over the past decade. 

She said "I think she has been absolutely extraordinary and a model of what a future queen should be.

"She has got such poise and elegance and she's not in competition with William. She doesn't seem to be seeking fame.

"Everything about her is measured. She's a grown-up. She seems to care a lot about everything she's put her name to.

"And she's very good with people but she's not on an ego trip and I think that is absolutely crucial in that role."

Over the past 14 months, during the pandemic, William and Kate have supported charities from afar with online events, video calls and even baking for local vulnerable people. All while home-schooling their children. 

Kate has also focused on charities in the areas of mental health, the visual arts, and the health benefits of the outdoors. They also became joint patrons of NHS Charities Together.
