It’s been eight whole years since Prince William married Kate Middleton , as she was known then, in 2011. On April 29 that year, the pair tied the knot in Westminster Abbey in front of 26.3m viewers in the UK alone. Over 5,000 street parties were held and one million people lined the route the couple took from the Abbey to Buckingham Palace. The pair met when they were students at the University of St Andrews in Scotland in 2001 and began dating a couple of years later. After a long courtship, William proposed to Kate with his mother Princess Diana’s diamond sapphire engagement ring during a trip to Kenya in 2010.
