Prince William and Kate have shared two smiling new portraits as they celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who got married on 29 April 2011, even mirrored one of their engagement photos taken a decade ago, with William holding his wife in his arms as she rests her head on his chest.

They also twinned in blue outfits, with William in a denim look shirt under a blue sweater. Kate, whose hair is loose in large curls, wears a blue floral dress with sheer sleeves and a wrap front.

The pictures were taken this week in London, in their garden at Kensington Palace by Chris Floyd.

In a second image, the couple are sat on a tree with William gazing lovingly at Kate.

The first portrait is reminiscent of one of the pictures released back in 2010, when they first announced their engagement.

William, 38, and Kate, 39, got married in Westminster Abbey, followed by a reception at Buckingham Palace.

There were 1,900 guests at their wedding, including royals from around the world and politicians like then-Prime Minister David Cameron, as well as celebrities like Sir Elton John and David Beckham.

Kate wore a dress by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, which was decorated with handmade lace, made at Hampton Court Palace by the Royal School of Needlework.

Kensington Palace said of the dress that Kate wanted to "combine tradition and modernity with the artistic vision that characterises Alexander McQueen's work".

Pieces of the lace were given to Fiona Cairns, who made the couple's cake, and the design was piped onto tiers of the fruit cake.

A decade on, William and Kate now have three children, Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, who turns six on Sunday, and Prince Louis, who turned three last week.
