Their wedding was spectacular, their happiness plain, and five years on, Prince William and the former Kate Middleton are still living the blissful life. Their wedding anniversary took place on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey in London, United Kingdom and this was really great celebration.
To mark this day Gibraltar Post has released a special festive miniature sheet that StampNews.com is glad to introduce to our readers` attention.
Prince William and Kate Middleton met in 2001. Their engagement on 20 October 2010 was announced on 16 November 2010. The build-up to the wedding and the occasion itself attracted much media attention, being compared in many ways with the 1981 marriage of William’s parents. The occasion was a public holiday in the United Kingdom and featured many ceremonial aspects, including use of the state carriages and roles for the Foot Guards and Household Cavalry.
Events were held around the Commonwealth to mark the wedding; organisations and hotels held events across Canada, over 5,000 street parties were held throughout the United Kingdom, and one million people lined the route between Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace. The ceremony was viewed live by tens of millions more around the world, including 72 million live streams on YouTube. In the United Kingdom, television audiences peaked at 26.3 million viewers, with a total of 36.7 million watching part of the coverage.
