Few can forget that special day on April 29, 2011, when the world watched on as Princess Catherine and Prince William exchanged vows at Westminster Abbey in London, marking the beginning of their fairytale journey together.

Now, 13 years later, Prince William and Princess Catherine have treated royal enthusiasts to a never-before-seen glimpse into their iconic wedding day, commemorating their anniversary with a black-and-white portrait from their special day.

Taken by photographer Millie Pilkington, the black-and-white portrait captures the timeless elegance of the royal couple.

Princess Catherine, adorned in her iconic long-sleeved gown crafted by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, radiates grace and poise.

Alongside her stands Prince William, donning his formal military uniform, a departure from the bright red colonel attire seen in official wedding photos.

The image, shared on social media, was accompanied by a simple yet heartfelt caption.

“13 years ago today!” the caption read.

Royal enthusiasts were quick to extend their warm wishes, flooding the comments section with heartfelt messages of congratulations. Many expressed gratitude for the couple’s gesture, thanking them for the glimpse into their cherished memories.

“Happy anniversary William and Catherine, the beginning of one of the best partnerships the Royal family has ever seen!” one wrote.

“Awww what a beautiful picture. Thank you for sharing it with us. Wishing you a very Happy 13th Wedding Anniversary and I hope you’re having a beautiful day.”

“Thank you so much for opening your Wedding album with us. Wishing you a very happy anniversary. Here’s to many more years,” commented another.

“Happy Anniversary, what a beautiful image.”

As an adoring public celebrate the royal pair’s special day, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams offered some insight into how William and Catherine will be celebrating their anniversary.

Fitzwilliams revealed to GB News that the couple would mark the occasion “very differently” compared to previous years given Princess Catherine’s ongoing health battle.

“They will undoubtedly be celebrating their 13th wedding anniversary privately,” he said.

“This year will be very different from previous years as Catherine is undergoing preventative chemotherapy after recovering from abdominal surgery.”

As Prince William and Princess Catherine navigate through life’s trials and triumphs, their unwavering bond continues to inspire millions worldwide.

As they reflect on 13 years of love, laughter, and shared experiences, royal enthusiasts no doubt eagerly anticipate the chapters yet to unfold in their remarkable journey together.
