Royal fans have shared their well-wishes for the Prince and Princess of Wales as they marked their 13th anniversary today.

Prince William, 41, and Kate Middleton,  42, tied the knot at Westminster Abbey in 2011 with around 37 million people watching in the UK.

In the 13 years since, they’ve welcomed three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, this morning, hundreds of fans were quick to share their wishes for the couple.

‘Happy anniversary to Prince William and Princess Catherine,’ one wrote.

‘It’s finally here!!! Happy Anniversary to the #PrinceandPrincessofWales #13YearsofWillandKate,’ said another.

Other fans described the pair as ‘each other’s lobsters’, a term meaning soulmates, while also sharing photos of loving glances between the pair.

‘Of all the love stories in the world, this is my favourite,’ said one.

‘A real fairytale,’ said another.

‘A happy and sparkling anniversary to William and Catherine. A glorious royal love story,’ said another.    

‘After more than 20 years together, 13 years of marriage and 3 children later William and Catherine’s love continues to blossom with each minute that passes. I hope their special day is filled with love, joy and happiness! Happy 13th Anniversary to the most adorable couple,’ said another.

While today is no doubt a joyous celebration for the couple, it’s been a tough year for the royal family.

In particular, The Princess of Wales is being treated for cancer following a major abdominal surgery at the start of the year.

Through it all, the princess has had the unstinting support of her husband, William, as she told the nation in that moving video address just a few weeks ago.

William is also dealing with his father King Charles’ cancer battle. 

However, the King’s health is improving and Charles will return to public duties this week with the blessing of his doctors, attending a cancer treatment clinic with Queen Camilla on Tuesday.

The King, 75, is still undergoing treatment for the disease but his medical team are understood to be ‘pleased with the progress made so far’.

Buckingham Palace announced on Friday plans for his first public engagement in four months, which will be especially poignant given his cancer battle as well as that of his daughter-in-law, the Princess of Wales, who is undergoing preventative chemotherapy for an undisclosed cancer.

It has now been reported that the monarch – seen driving himself to church on Sunday – is determined to saddle up on his horse Noble for Trooping the Colour in June. He is said to want to be seen to ‘lead from the front’.

Fans were quick to share well wishes with the couple

Both the Princess of Wales and Charles had been in hospital together at the same time in January – Kate was having abdominal surgery and the monarch had a procedure on his prostate.

The King had tentatively ‘toddled’ from his hospital bed to Kate’s nearby room to comfort his daughter in law on a number of occasions as both recovered in the exclusive London Clinic.

Prince William has been totally focused on supporting his wife and family and until recently cut back on public duties – a balm to his wife. Camilla too has publicly and privately offered love and support to Kate.

Shortly after their hospital stays, Charles bravely broke with royal protocol by sharing his cancer diagnosis in late January. The Princess of Wales was inspired to reveal her cancer diagnosis after the warm response to the King doing the same six weeks earlier.

They both received their cancer diagnosis in February, although Kate delayed her public announcement until just before the Easter school holidays to tell her children at a time that was ‘right for them’.

This week, it emerged that the King has been given permission by doctors to return to public-facing duties after being diagnosed with cancer.

His Majesty is not yet clear of the disease and is still undergoing treatment, but his medical team are understood to be ‘pleased with the progress made so far’ and ‘remain positive’ about his recovery.

Meanwhile, Sarah, Duchess of York is also facing her own cancer diagnosis.

She had a mole removed from her body which tests founds to be a malignant melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer.

And last year, she told fans that she underwent a reconstruction operation following a breast cancer diagnosis.

The royals’ decision to break with tradition by being open about their health scares contrasts with more circumspect statements during the reign of the late Queen.
