Prince William and Kate Middleton have celebrated their 12th wedding anniversary with a loved up photo, to the delight of royal fans.

The Prince and Princess of Wales shared the photo of them riding bikes together in Norfolk last year to their social media accounts, prompting a wave of well wishes.

The beaming couple have their arms around each other, sharing the photo with the simple caption “12 years”, with a heart emoji.

Many royal fans were quick to flock to the comments to wish the couple a happy anniversary, and recall where they were when the royals tied the knot.

One royal super fan wrote, “Thank you for your service and sacrifice. What a gloomy world it would be without the makings of fairy tales. How dull would childhood be without stories of Princesses and their Prince Charmings who are pulled in carriages and live in grand castles.”

Another said, “A hearty congratulations. I just love you two… Keep doing exactly what you’re doing.”

One royal fanatic recalled their big day, writing, “Your wedding day was the only day in my life that my friends and I skipped school so we could watch the ceremony and all the TV specials from the event; it was a wonderful wedding. Congratulations.”

After an eight-year relationship, the former university flatmates tied the knot at Westminster Abbey on April 29th 2011.

The Prince and Princess of Wales’ wedding was the royal event of 2011, with 2,000 guests in attendance at the fairytale ceremony.

Almost 25 million people watched the live televised ceremony, with an estimated worldwide television audience of two billion.

Their royal nuptials made global headlines, as they sealed their new marriage with a kiss on the famous balcony of Buckingham Palace.
