Kate Middleton and Prince William's Romantic Year: The Photographic Evidence

April 27, 2012

Once upon a time one year ago, a 21st century couple threw a 16th century wedding for all the world to attend. There was a chariot, a very long bridal train, and a balcony kiss.

Kate Middleton and Prince William--college roommates, best friends, long-term partners--were totally, genuinely and powerfully in love.
