In celebration of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 10th wedding anniversary on 29 April 2021, the couple went on to share a rare video showcasing their family of five.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s 10th wedding anniversary

After getting married in a lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 2011, the pair celebrated their family in a newly released video, featuring Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

According to Town and Country, the video sees the family at a beach near the family’s home in Norfolk during the autumn season. Filmmaker Will Warr reportedly put together the video in which the family laughs and traipses around the countryside, playing in nature and on the beach. 

The Duke and Duchess posted the video alongside a heartfelt message. “Thank you to everyone for the kind messages on our wedding anniversary. We are enormously grateful for the 10 years of support we have received in our lives as a family. W & C,” they wrote.

A momentous occasion

This video isn’t the only anniversary content the Duke and Duchess distributed. Yesterday, the pair released two new photos of themselves, taken by British photographer Chris Floyd.

The portraits were taken at Kensington Palace and feature the couple cuddling and laughing for the camera. Kate sported a long-sleeved floral blue dress from the brand Ghost London, while William chose a blue button-down and matching sweater, colour coordinating with his wife. The mother-of-three added a touch of glamour to her blue outfit with a striking Asprey necklace, which is a new addition to the royal’s jewellery collection – and presumably an anniversary gift from William. Meanwhile, in both pictures, the Duchess of Cambridge’s iconic sapphire engagement ring features prominently, marking the momentous occasion.

According to The Diamond Store, the sapphire ring that William gave Kate has deep personal meaning for him. It previously belonged to William’s mother, Princess Diana, who died an untimely death in a car crash in August 1997. Prince William said at the time of his engagement that giving the ring to Kate was his way of making sure his mother didn’t miss out on this special occasion.
