I loved looking at the pictures of the past year for the Cambridges. They have done very well as a couple as well as individually. I've said this before, but I'll say it again; marriage has really agreed with William. He appears more relaxed and at ease when it public (I began to notice this when they performed engagements together right after getting betrothed in November '10). Catherine has come into her role very seamlessly. She's quite natural at being in public, even if she doesn't like being the center of attention. It was really lovely watching them grow in the past year. I'm sure we'll have more things to look forward to as time goes by.

The beautiful English field maples which lined the aisle in Westminster Abbey for William and Kate's wedding, are seen flourishing outside the house Prince Charles renovated and which he and Camilla stay in when in Wales. It's so nice to see the trees continuing to do well, I thought they were a gorgeous touch in the Abbey.

Nice to see the beautiful maples have found a new home.
They looked really beautiful during the wedding, a nice personal touch to the traditional affair.

Yes the maples were a beautiful touch to the wedding. They made the church look like it was in the forest and gave a feeling of being out in the open. Good that they are being used at the house. What a nice memory.

I remember having the same impression when seeing the trees inside the Abbey. I was reminded of various parks that I visited as a child, while living in Moscow. It's nice to see that the trees found a home with Charles and Camila. A very lovely keepsake from a very special day.

Nice to see these trees thriving and healthy; can one say this is also symbolic of the couple's marriage without getting too sentimental about it? I wonder where the remainder of the trees went to. Thanks for the article, E!

Do you remember the days before the wedding when we saw the trees going into the Abbey and heard about the decorations? I thought it was going to look awful. There were very few actual flowers used; some weddings go overboard with red roses in particular. But, it actually worked beautifully. Charles has a bit of a knack for interior design. You can view pictures of the inside of the house in Wales, which was designed by Charles, and it's all really pretty. Simple, but elegant.

I also thought the idea of trees in the Abbey wasn't going to work out well, but they did look nice and not overwhelming. Charles' property looks lovely and the trees are so well-suited to the landscape.

I thought the press said that William and Kate were attending a wedding this weekend?
Whose wedding is it?

Not the entire weekend, they'll be back in Anglessey either now or tomorrow morning for their anniversary. The only info I heard on this weekend, was they were spending part of it with friends.

EDIT: tweet from Ghost_night at the top of the page says they were at a friends "celebration".

Yeah we're hearing 2 diff versions of what they're plans are for this weekend. The whole friend's wedding started because one of the journalists I can't member who said that a likely scenario could be that the "celebration" at their friend's place could be a wedding but besides that we have no real confirmation whether or not that assumption is in fact correct.

On another note, one year later some secrets from the wedding day have been revealed by Kate's hairdresser

The two were spotted with Pippa at a wedding in Suffolk.

On the eve of their 1st wedding anniversary the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge, together with Pippa, attended a wedding in Suffolk. @MrsRegalEyes

Pictures are supposedly coming from her husband royal photographer Mark Stewart (@RegalEyes) and Ikon Pictures if they manage to sell them. Which seems highly likely to me.
