A Royal Love Timeline
How Prince William wooed Kate Middleton.
Nearly seven months ago, the entire world watched as Prince William and Kate Middleton walked down the aisle in the Royal Wedding event that caused millions to fall in love with Kate. And now, on the first Christmas they’re spending together as a married couple, the two looked as happy as newlyweds should.

William, Kate and the entire royal family all made their way to Sandringham Church to partake in the traditional Christmas Day service at the historic venue in King’s Lynn, England. And because it wouldn’t be a royal occasion without some fabulous hats, Kate showed off her flair for fashion with a maroon fascinator that almost was a take on an askew fedora that also matched her coat.

As children gathered to get a glimpse of the royal family, Duchess Catherine (y’know, Kate’s royal title now) was all smiles and made sure to go on a hand-shaking tour of the grounds.
