Kate Middleton & Prince William, Then & Now — 41 Photos That Capture How They’ve Changed

11 years ago, one-day king Prince William watched as his bride Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, walked down the aisle towards him to start their happily-ever-after — and a decade later, they’re still going as strong as ever. Looking back at photos of the royals over the years — at Christmas, Trooping the Colour, graduations, royal visits, and more — we see how the young prince and his bride have grown over their 10 years of marriage into the warm and reliable Cambridges we know today.

The love story of William and Kate Middleton began at St. Andrews, where the two ambitious teens found themselves in similar circles and, eventually, turning that friendship into something more. We watched them grow up through their post-college years, as William briefly cut things off and Kate pulled off one of the greatest break-not-breakup glow-ups of all time, bringing her prince running right back. Today, with both William and Kate nearing 40 and a house full of kids at home, it’s easy to wonder where the time went from when these fresh-faced youths were first falling in love — and, how much they’ve really changed.

From Kate’s ever-evolving shades of brown hair and preppy-glam style to William’s increasing resemblance to the rest of the royal family, we’ve seen these faces for over 10 years and it’s easy to miss those subtle changes year by year — take a pic at photos of the couple from their St. Andrew’s graduation in 2005 to today to see their changing faces over the years.
