They have long been royal favorites.

They met while studying at university.
Though their relationship was on and off for years...

And, ever since, we have followed them as their own little family grew.

Kate emerged from St. Mary's hospital in London in a blue polka dot dress, which many saw as a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, who wore a similar spotty attire herself some thirty-one years earlier.
Princess Charlotte followed shortly after.

The princess has actually made royal history.
via: GettyPrincess Charlotte became the first female royal to retain her claim to the throne, despite having a younger brother. Before the Succession to the Crown Act 2013, the birth of a son meant that he would leap over any older daughters in the line of succession.
Traditionally, Prince Louis would have overtaken Charlotte in the line to the throne.

So, as you can see...

And that fashion gene seems to have been passed down to their children...

It's now been nearly a decade since William and Kate tied the knot...
via: GettyAnd it seems their royal wedding is hitting the headlines once again, but for a very different reason.
Now, of course, many will know that the royal couple is heading towards their ten year wedding anniversary.
via: GettyAlthough Kate was initially branded as a “reluctant royal" due to her shy nature and fear of public speaking, she has gone on to become one of the most beloved royal figures over the past few years.
However, that's not forgetting the rocky start to life as a royal she had, especially when it came to maintaining a sense of privacy...
via: GettyAnd there's one aspect of her royal wedding that reportedly had her "in tears."
The duchess was reportedly devastated when she found out details of her bespoke wedding dress had been leaked to the public.
via: Getty ImagesKate had apparently tried to keep the name of the designer, Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton, a secret but it was soon revealed ahead of time.
At the time, The Sunday Times reported this:
via: Getty Images“A fashion source said that the dress will be a combination of Middleton’s own design ideas and Burton’s deep knowledge and understanding of high fashion."
Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl said:
