Remember counting down to the second when Will and Kate would share a balcony kiss? It seemed important and finalizing at the time. But then, life goes on. So what happened after the fairytale ended? It didn't.

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. Honestly, it could have all been a little much, if not for the two people getting married. Kate Middleton and Prince William--college roommates, best friends, long-term partners--were totally, genuinely and powerfully in love. But could this kind of moony-eyed companionship hold up in the first year of marriage? It's been said that year one is the toughest, but from the looks of these two it's been one big, royal honeymoon. By Piper Weiss
