Love is in the air for Prince William and Kate Middleton as they celebrate a decade of marriage with a swoon-worthy photo shoot by royal photographer Chris Floyd. Not even rampant rumours of a royal family rift appeared to dampen their spirits.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge released two new portraits on Thursday, one day ahead of their April 29 anniversary. Taken outside Kensington Palace, the couple appear cozy in complimentary shades of blue as Kate also flashes her large blue sapphire engagement ring – the same one once worn by Princess Diana.

Their nuptials at Westminster Abbey in 2011 drew a worldwide audience of millions, including 72 million live streams on YouTube alone. An impressive feat, but one that still didn’t manage to top the wedding of William’s parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana – their 1981 ceremony was viewed by a whopping 750 million people in 74 countries.

Since exchanging vows, William and Kate have welcomed three kids – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

It’s been a tumultuous month for the royal family as they continue to grapple with the death of Prince Philip on April 9 and the ongoing conversations with Prince Harry. Although there have been moments of reprieve – Will and Kate’s anniversary, son Louis’ third birthday – the royal family are still feeling the effects of Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive Oprah Winfrey interview in March and accusations of racism in the family.

Prince William is second in line to the throne behind his father Prince Charles. Once crowned king, William will be able to make Kate a queen consort – the title given to those who ascend to the throne without royal blood. (A commoner, basically). Kate will have her own separate crowning ceremony, albeit on a smaller scale than Williams’.
