On April 29, 2011 the whole world witnessed the 21st’s royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton that took place at Westminster Abbeys. It is the happy ending for the couple after their 9-year romantic love story.
And now, seven months later they spent together as a married couple on their first Christmas. William, Kate and the entire royal family all went to Sandringham Church to participate in the traditional Christmas Day service at the historic venue in King’s Lynn, England.
Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton first met at the University of St. Andrew, where they studied art history, in September 2001. After nine-year romance ups and downs, they ended up their love story with a romantic royal wedding in front of thousand guests and royal fans last April.
William and Kate were joined on the walk to the 16th century St. Mary Magdalene Church by Prince Charles; William’s cousins Princess Beatrice and Eugenie; and newlyweds Zara Phillips and Mike Tindall.
