Nine years later, the pair have reminded the world of that moment with a post they shared to mark their anniversary. Along with a picture of them at the church entrance, the Cambridges wrote in the caption:

"Nine years ago today – thank you for all your lovely messages on The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's wedding anniversary!"

 

While the post attracted the attention of their beloved fans, the celebration didn't end there as Hello! Magazine recalled all the high points from their breathtaking wedding.

According to the media outlet, the ceremony was carried out with both bride and groom enjoying the unwavering support of their siblings.

While Prince Harry took his place as William's best man, Pippa Middleton, Kate's sister, took hers as the bride's maid of honor.

Royal observers got their first look at the Sarah Burton-designed show-stopping bridal gown when Kate waved at onlookers from the vintage Rolls Royce Phantom she rode to the ceremony.

Observers got a more extended look at the gown as Kate's beaming father, Michael Middleton, walked her up the aisle at Westminster Abbey, where the ceremony took place.

As the dress caught the attention of many people, The Telegraph recalled the story behind the Alexander McQueen wedding gown which Sarah didn't want people to know she designed.

According to the media outlet, the creative director went as far as entering a confidentiality agreement with Buckingham Palace to hide her involvement with creating Kate's wedding gown. As at the time of the occurrence, Sarah stated that:

"It was so great to actually keep a secret, especially in this day and age when everyone talks about everything."

Meanwhile, soon after the widely-watched ceremony ended, the royal website noted that the Dean of Westminster conducted the service as the Archbishop of Canterbury married the couple, and the Bishop of London gave the address.
