Kate Middleton and Prince William have celebrated eight years of marriage together today, which comes just days after the 37-year-old royal made a subtle nod to the milestone at the Easter Sunday service.

The couple tied the knot on April 29, 2011, at Westminster Abbey in London, unlike Meghan Markle and Prince Harry who tied the knot in St. George's chapel in Windsor last year.

Kensington Palace celebrated their special day with a heartwarming post to mark the occasion. They shared a string of pictures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on their wedding day on their official Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The post read: '8 years ago today — thank you for your lovely messages on The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding anniversary!'

Fans of the royal couple - who have sons Prince George and Prince Louis, as well as Princess Charlotte together - have flocked to social media to send their well wishes.

One Instagrammer commented: 'Happy Anniversary to The Duke & Duchess! A beautiful, kind couple. This was such a special day', while a second gushed: 'Happy 8th anniversary to one of my favourite couples! I love you and wish you the very best.'

Others hailed the couple's wedding day as the 'wedding of the century'.

They wrote: 'Congratulations to our future King and Queen on your wedding anniversary. It was truly the wedding of the century! 8 years and 3 most beautiful children later, your marriage is an inspiration to all.'

Another added: 'William & Kate’s wedding was the first time most of us got a chance to watch a royal wedding and it surely didn’t disappoint! It was every bit of magical and dreamy! Wishing the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge a lifetime of happiness together!'
