ITâ€™S been seven years since lovebird royals Kate Middleton and Prince William tied the knot.
And to celebrate their anniversary, The Sun reports, Kensington Palace led the way with the celebrations with a sweet throwback photo from the big day on April 29, 2011.
The adorable shot shows the happy couple on their wedding day driving down the Mall in Williamâ€™s balloon-decorated, open-topped vintage car with the registration plate â€śJU5T WEDâ€ť.
The official Instagram account added the caption: â€śSeven years ago today – thank you for all the lovely messages on The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding anniversary!â€ť
Prince William and Kate Middleton married at Westminster Abbey and the spectacular day was watched live by 36 million people.
Their seven-year milestone comes just after the pair welcomed their third child â€“ Prince Louis Arthur Charles â€“ on St Georgeâ€™s Day.
No doubt the parents, who also have two other kids under five, Prince George, four, and Princess Charlotte, two, will have their hands full on their special day.
The seventh anniversary traditional theme is wool or copper, so perhaps they will exchange knitwear or kitchen items as gifts.
The royal couple have seen an outpouring of supportive messages in honour of their anniversary.
One Twitter user said: â€śHappy Wedding Anniversary to Kate and William. Have a wonderful day. God bless you both on your new baby Son Prince Louis.â€ťAnother tweeted: â€śIf you need a reason to smile today, itâ€™s William and Kateâ€™s anniversary.â€ť
The wedding came a decade after the pair met, with Wills and Kate having first crossed paths back at uni in 2001.
Both students at St Andrews, the royal couple got on like a house on fire during their student days, and coupled up in 2003.
The engagement came seven years later in October 2010, sparking mass excitement all over the world at the prospect of a royal wedding.
Kate and Prince William’s child, Prince Louis, appears to have been named after Louis Mountbatten, the much-loved uncle of Prince Philip who was killed by an IRA bomb in 1979.
His full title is His Royal Highness Prince Louis Arthur Charles of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The tot, born a healthy 8lbs 7oz on Monday, will join Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the next generation of the royal family.
The newborn shares the French name with his brother George, who has it as one of his middle names. Louis – which is to be pronounced with a silent “s” – is also one of William’s middle names. He was born on April 23, which is St Georgeâ€™s Day in the UK.
The world was forced to wait four days for Prince Louisâ€™ name to become public during a busy week of royal activities that included Anzac Day and the news Prince William would be Prince Harryâ€™s best man.
Itâ€™s twice the amount of time it took for Prince George and Princess Charlotteâ€™s names to become known.
Kate gave birth on Monday at 11.01am on April 23, in the Lindo Wing at St Maryâ€™s Hospital in London with her husband Prince William by her side.
â€śThe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are delighted to announce that they have named their son Louis Arthur Charles,â€ť the Kensington Palace statement said.
â€śThe baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince Louis of Cambridge.â€ť
The choice has come as surprise to royal watchers who had ruled out Louis as an option because it is one of the middle names of Prince George.
Punters in England had been placing bets right up until the moment the name was announced by Kensington Palace.
Across all major agencies Arthur had the best odds for a first name with Albert, James, Frederick and Philip also proving popular.
Charles is an obvious tribute to Williamâ€™s father, whereas Arthur is also one of the middle names of both Charles and William.
A spokesperson from betting agency William Hill told News Corp they taken about $AUD280,000 worth of bets on the new baby name.
Arthur was the most popular guess representing 4000 bets, Henry was the least raking up just six per cent of all guesses.
