Kate Middleton and Prince William were married at Westminster Abbey in 2011 with more than 20 million people tuning in to see the couple say their vows. The wedding of the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge was relatively traditional and imitated the nuptials of Prince Charles and Princess Diana in many ways. However, on April 29, Kate and Wills broke the real protocol that goes back 350 years.
According to the book "The Duchess of Cambridge: How Kate Middleton Became a Future Queen" by Jessica Jayne, Prince William was the first member of the royal family to marry a "plebeian" in more than three centuries.
Ms. Jayne writes: "All those who have criticized Kate and criticized her for being" common "ate her words.
"In the old days, a commoner married to royalty may just be a dream, but times have changed, Kate would be the first person to marry a prince in 350 years."
Of course, the Queen had to give her approval to the marriage, a royal tradition that even Prince Harry and Meghan Markle honored.
After the announcement of her engagement, the queen revealed that she was "delighted" by the news.
While some called her "commoner", Kate has come to be loved by the British public for her grace, beauty and kindness.
In 2013, she gave birth to Prince George to the delight of the public.
Two years later he saw the arrival of Princess Charlotte and then Prince Louis in 2018.
Yesterday, Express.co.uk revealed how Kate and William played a key role in Prince Harry's decision to ask Meghan Markle for his hand in marriage.
According to reports, Harry claimed that the couple had "inspired" him during his godfather speech at his wedding.
He paid tribute to his brother and continued to tell the guests that he "loved Kate like a sister."
In 2011, when Kate and Wills were married, Prince Harry was the best man, which broke the royal protocol, as it was the first time in history that a real king named a better man.
Seven years later, when it was Harry's turn to walk down the hall, William returned the favor by being his brother's best man.
Years after being "inspired" by the romance of his brother and his wife, Harry married actress Meghan Markle in front of millions of people.
The couple married in the Chapel of St. George of Windsor accompanied by members of the royal family, including the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
