Ms Seward added that royals tend to stick to low-key celebrations on anniversaries since they have “so many to deal with”.

She said: “I would think that they’ll just have a private celebration at home. They’ll probably be inviting friends, they can do that.”

When did William and Kate begin dating?

The couple met at university and dated for several years before the Duke proposed in 2010.

William popped the question to Kate during a trip to Kenya with friends in October 2010.

However, the engagement wasn’t officially announced until November 2010.

They then married at Westminster Abbey the following year and have gone on to have three children – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Meanwhile, it’s said the Queen would like to celebrate Kate and William’s 10th anniversary in style because it also marks 10 years since the Duchess officially joined the family.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, royal expert Duncan Larcombe said: “It’s highly likely she’ll be planning a special secret something to honour Kate’s 10 years in the royal family.

“Something she can do to mark it. Kate and the Queen have a fantastic relationship.”

However, before Kate’s extremely close bond with the royals, her parents were reportedly concerned about how she’d cope with royal life.

The Duke of Cambridge reportedly once made a promise to Kate’s parents when she joined the royal family.
