Monday is eight years since Prince William (36) and Duchess Kate (37) gave each other their "yes" at a grand ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London. Since then, the Crown Prince's next couple has taken part in several official missions, and has received his three children, Prince George (5), Princess Charlotte (3) and Prince Louis (1).
If the couple has a tradition of celebrating the wedding day is not known, but in recent days, Prince William has been on an official visit to New Zealand, where he visited the victims after the terror in Christchurch.
OIf the prince, for this reason, had no opportunity to do anything special for his wife on this wedding day, at least his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth (93), got stuck in the Duchess.
Monday night, the royal house announced that Queen Elizabeth gave Duchess Kate a new title for the wedding anniversary.
Reward of the Queen
The title that the Duchess received now is Dame Grand Cross, which in Norwegian can be translated as Grand Lady and is of the royal order of Victoria. It is a scheme of knights founded by Queen Victoria in 1896.
The Order is a family order that depends entirely on the monarch's own desire and which is distributed by the Queen herself.
The title is given as a reward for those who have gained the queen or the monarchy in a special way, says the royal family website.
On the occasion of the couple's wedding, the royal family also shared a photo of the couple on their wedding day on their official Instagram account.
– Eight years today. Thank you for all the friendly greetings on the wedding day of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the official post says.
When the couple married on April 29, 2011, it was scheduled for a big party in Britain.
The bride was brilliantly beautiful in a lace dress specially created by Alexander McQueen, and Duchess Kate (34) has won accolades for the wedding dress in the fashion press around the world. It was McQueen's chief designer, Sarah Burton, who was the brain behind the dream dress.
At that time, there was excitement about Kate behaving like her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, when she married Prince Charles in 1981, omitting the promise to obey her husband, which was shocking at the time.
Kate did – she promised to love and honor, but not obey.
