Prince William and Kate Middleton still look all loved-up in two delightful new portraits released to mark their 10th wedding anniversary.

Kate, 39, was beaming with delight as she nestled lovingly into the grinning future King, 38.

A second image shows the couple sitting holding hands, with the mum-of-three leaning into her husband, the Mirror reports.

The pair will mark 10 years as man and wife on Thursday. They tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in a televised ceremony watched by an estimated two billion people around the world.

Both photographs were taken at Kensington Palace this week by Chris Floyd, with the Duchess of Cambridge sporting a dress by Ghost.

In the decade since their big day William, second-in-line to the throne after his father, and Kate have had three children – seven-year-old George, Charlotte, five, and Louis, three.

Their wedding on April 29, 2011, saw viewers from around the globe tune in to see Kate walk down the aisle to marry her prince almost 10 years after they first met as freshers at the University of St Andrews.

A decade ago William and brother Prince Harry were still close, with the latter the best man at the nuptials.

Harry, 36, reportedly regaled reception guests with a gushing speech in which he described the newlyweds as a "perfect couple".

While William and Kate's relationship has gone from strength to strength, the brothers' relationship is struggling after Harry and Meghan Markle's decision to quit as working royals and their subsequent interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Kate reportedly acted as peacemaker between the feuding siblings when Harry returned to the UK for Prince Philip's funeral.

As the Mirror reported earlier this week, William and Kate's wedding nearly didn't go ahead at all, as the prince broke the romance off in the early days.

They were first snapped kissing in the Swiss resort of Klosters in April 2004 and the relationship became public, triggering frenzied speculation of an engagement.

It was hardly love at first sight when, both fresh from gap years, they first met in 2002. Some reports have it that Kate awkwardly curtsied when their paths crossed in the first year halls of residence.

She later said: "I actually think I went bright red when I met you and sort of scuttled off, feeling very shy."

William, whose pet name for Kate is said to be Babykins, while she calls him Big Willie, recalled: “We spent more time with each other, had lots of fun and realised we shared the same interests.

"She’s got a really naughty sense of humour, which helps me because I’ve got a really dry sense of humour, so it was good fun.”
