The date? April 29, 2011. The time? Way, way too early across the pond. Kate Middleton stepped out of a black Rolls-Royce in a white dress, and we were forever changed. Okay, that may be a bit dramatic. But the world was simply shook when Kate Middleton tied the knot with Prince William in Westminster Abbey, and you can safely say that nothing was ever really the same. After all, the 2011 royal wedding brought us Kate's still-talked-about-today Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, maid-of-honor M.V.P. Pippa Middleton, and Prince Harry's eternally adorable "Wait until you see her." (Let's relive that last one, shall we?)
But now, Prince Harry has gone from best man to groom, as the younger prince is on the very cusp of tying the knot with his bride, Meghan Markle. With their own royal wedding just mere weeks away, we're dying to finally see all the details of the day unfold, from Meghan Markle's wedding dress to her and Prince Harry's carriage ride through Windsor.
To make the wait a little more bearable, we're throwing it back to that fateful date in April 2011—Kate Middleton and Prince William's royal wedding day. We're relieving all our favorite moments, from Kate Middleton's wedding dress reveal to the couple's kiss on the Buckingham Palace balcony. It's hard to believe that it's been seven years since the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said I do, and if you scroll through the photos below it'll feel like just yesterday that you woke up at dawn and turned on your TV to watch Will and Kate tie the knot. Remember, it won't be long now until you'll be doing it again for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding! (Don't forget to set your alarms!)
