Now, the British royal family is one of the most famous families in the world.
Yes, even more famous than our beloved Kardashians.
And there are always some members of the family people tend to warm to most.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or William and Kate, as we know them best, are the firm favorites of the younger, more modern monarchy.
Following their lavish, and highly documented royal wedding in 2011, Wills and Kate were thrown into the media spotlight.
And we still can’t get enough of them.
Their story is very sweet…
William, who is the son of Prince Charles and in line for the throne, met Kate at the University of St Andrew’s in Scotland in 2001.
And then, 9 years after they met each other, something incredible happened.
Their engagement was announced in 2010.
And just 3 years later, there was a new edition welcomed to the royal family.
In July 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, becoming the third in line to the throne of Great Britain.
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.
Oh, but their family didn’t stop growing there.
Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born in May 2015, just under 2 years after her older brother.
Princess 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.
But, Princess Charlotte hasn’t been ruled out by gender.
So, Prince Louis remains fifth-in-line to the throne, while Charlotte is fourth-in-line behind her older brother, Prince George.
And we think that’s why everyone loves Prince William and the wonderful Kate.
Because they really are paving the path to a more modern monarchy.
I mean we all remember the iconic pictures of Kate in her student fashion show.
Since becoming the Duchess, Kate’s style has evolved into something unparalleled.
But that’s not all, they’ve both grown into their roles as head royals…
And even through the difficult times over the last few years, they have shown true decorum in their actions.
It hasn’t been easy for Kate and William, especially after Harry and Meghan left the royal family.
But through it all, they have continued without faltering, and their fans have backed them all the way.
The relationship between Prince Harry and Prince William is still very strained…
And the distance between the 2 brothers doesn’t help.
They briefly put their differences aside for big family moments, such as Prince Philip’s funeral…
Or when they reunited this summer to unveil the memorial statue in honor of their late mother, Princess Diana.
But it doesn’t seem to have led to any improvements in their relationship.
A tweet by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did suggest the rift is behind them…
“Happy Birthday Prince Harry!” the pair wrote on their social media account…
Along with a touching photo of Harry.
Although their message was short and sweet, fans seem to revel in the high level of class the royal couple has shown despite recent family feuds.
And now, Will and Kate’s youngest son has stolen the spotlight.
It was Prince Louis’ birthday on Friday, April 22, and Kensington Palace shared some adorable photos Kate had taken of him…
As we know, Kate loves photography and often takes official photos of her children for their birthdays.
But these 4 new portraits of Louis at the beach in a grey sweater, shirt, and shorts have left a lot of people commenting on the similarities between him and his dad.
One Facebook user wrote: “Prince Louis looks so much like his Daddy. I have to say he looks a bit cheeky. William and Kate must be very proud of him.”
This is the first time Louis has been seen since the Cambridges’ 2021 holiday card, as the royal children have taken a step back since the pandemic.
In an interview with BBC Breakfast back in 2020, Kate revealed: “Louis doesn’t understand social distancing. He goes out wanting to cuddle anything, particularly any babies younger than him.”
