How lovely is this shot of Kate and Wills taking a romantic stroll through the dusty paths of Ayers Rock in Australia?
The couple looked totally relaxed and content in each other’s company on the royal visit and it looked like they just couldn’t help but gaze at one another! Almost three years since the couple tied the knot, and they’re still ruddy smitten. Lovely to see.

Now we’re not saying we’re the sportiest bunch, and it’s been a while (we’re talking school days here… ) since we played any kind of field sports, but we’re pretty sure you’re not meant to play cricket in an outfit that smart Kate!
We’ll never get tired of looking at these two love birds! We love this natural shot of Kate sharing a laugh with hubby Wills during their trip to Christchurch for a cricketing event.
We wonder if they were laughing about Wills narrowly missing wife Kate’s head with his bowling attempts when it was their turn to have a go at the sport – he’s lucky he didn’t get in trouble when he got home!

How sweet! In January 2012 when Kate and William attended the War Horse film premiere in London, it was raining and Wills was a true gentlemen holding an umbrella over Kate.

Kate and Wills attended another friend’s wedding in Gloucestershire October 2010 as speculation grew about their own impending engagement.

We wonder if being in such a romantic setting gave William a few ideas about proposing to Kate.

A few years later in an interview, Kate said that the break-up made them stronger. She said: ‘I, at the time, wasn’t very happy about it but actually it made me a stronger person, you find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn’t realised.
‘You can get quite consumed by a relationship when you are younger.’

photographer couldn’t get a clear shot of them together.

She must be his good luck charm as we don’t think we’ve seen him play sports without Kate watching on!
