Today marks the first Anniversary of the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since, Britons took to the streets to celebrate in traditional british manner, of street parties, and bunting, making our nation smile for a day, during these economically critical times. Hundreds of millions of people across the world watched, as TV channels broadcast live. Kate Middleton walked down the isle, at Westminster Abbey, in a beautiful lace Alexander McQueen dress. William, waited at the front of the Abbey, looking every inch a Prince, in the Red Irish Guards Tunic, uniform.
Well a year has past and what a year it has been for young Royal Couple, a year that has seen the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge mark several important milestones including their first Royal overseas tour to North America, the announcement of a number of charitable patronage’s, Kate’s first solo public speech, as well as an addition to the family in the form of a pet cocker spaniel, Lupo, a spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has confirmed that they are spending the weekend of their first anniversary “privately”.
In a year in which the spotlight is well and truly on all things British and London related, British toy company, Arklu, and photographer Duncan Raban have imagined what this weekend, might entail.
Duncan explains the motivation behind his photos: “I love to put children’s toy characters into real life human everyday situations. I guess this fun concept seems to bring out the childhood in people’s hearts and it’s been so much fun watching people enjoy this kind of theatre on the streets.”
Whatever the couple have really been ding this weekend to celebrate their first anniversary, im sure they have taken timeout to spend with each other and look back on their amazing year.
