It’s been three years since Kate Middleton married Prince William, and what a journey it’s been! One Prince and one Princess, a billion public engagements, lots of coat dresses, fancy hats, various royal tours, a topless scandal and one royal baby.

Being photographed 24/7 all around the world, it looks as though the marriage of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is a roaring success so far, as successful as the wedding itself. Photographers who snapped them recently say they still look and act as if they’re deeply in love. Even so, it looks like another quiet night in for Prince William and Duchess Kate on the night of their nuptials on April 29, 2011. This royal couple is not known for regularly throwing huge extravaganzas in their own honor. Maybe it’s because their wedding of a lifetime was such an over-the-top extravaganza, watched by billions with celebrations lasting for days, that they’re still trying to live the day down.

Or maybe it’s because the couple and their 9-month-old baby, Prince George, have just returned from an exhausting three-week tour of Australia, one of the longest and most successful overseas royal tours in decades, with dozens of engagements, flights and outfit changes.

Whatever the beautiful couple decides to do for the day, we’re so excited to celebrate their anniversary and we’re just so thrilled to see their marriage blooming with every year that goes by. So to celebrate the day, we complied our favorite moments from the Royal Wedding on April 29. 2011. Congrats to William and Kate, may the next year find you both peace and happiness (and we’re hoping baby number two…)
