Kate & WIlliam's Wedding Anniversary: How They've Changed in 3 Years

It seems like only yesterday, but it was actually three whole years ago when Kate and Will tied the knot in the lavish royal wedding seen 'round the world.


All the way back in 2011, William and Kate were just two young lovebirds, excited to get married and make their union official. But now that there years have passed, they've grown into so much more: Kate got pregnant, they had a baby, William lost more of his hair and mastered how to operate a car seat. 

It's hard to imagine the royal couple before baby Prince George and those precious cheeks, but let's take a trip down memory lane to commemorate their anniversary. WillKat, then and now. And by "then," I mean around 2011.

Cue "Memories" by Elvis Presley.
