Will and Kate One Year On
One year on from the dazzling Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, watched by an audience of millions worldwide, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reported to have spent their first wedding anniversary at a country pub in Suffolk, before returning to their home in Wales.
While guest at the wedding of an old school friend of Catherine’s, the Royal Couple stayed at the aptly named ‘The Crown’, a 12th century inn situated in the village of Westleton.
True to form, William and Kate were said to demonstrate no ‘airs and graces’ and expected no special treatment during their stay at ‘The Crown’. Joining in with the rest of the party, the couple enjoyed a glass of champagne with friends at the inn, before leaving for the private wedding reception.
In their first year of marriage – aside from their honeymoon in the Seychelles and the arrival of a new family member, Lupo the Cocker Spaniel – The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have certainly been busy.
The newly married Royals have been on a Royal Tour to Canada and the USA. The Duke has spent six weeks on duty in the Falkland Islands. The Duchess has announced and actively begun promoting her various patronages, and has accompanied The Queen on Royal engagements.
William and Kate have also enjoyed a skiing holiday in France together, and appeared at numerous film premiere events in London….and that’s just to mention the most apparent of their activities
It’s therefore not surprising then that the couple preferred a low-key celebration for their anniversary and retreated to their home in Wales, on the windswept Isle of Anglesey, where William is working as a Search and Rescue pilot for the RAF.
