Magical Photos Of Will And Kate's Royal Wedding You Haven't Seen A Million Times

Happy fifth anniversary, Will and Kate!

Can you believe it's been five years since the day of the century royal wedding?

On Friday, April 29, 2011, many moons before the world became enamored with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, Kate Middleton officially became Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Her wedding to Prince William also served as the backdrop for one of the most iconic kisses and the world's formal introduction to Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton.

We could easily scroll through photos of the wedding party walking into Westminster Abbey, or the couple kissing on the balcony and waving to the slew of adoring fans, all day. But it's the details -- the shots of that adorable bridal party, or (our personal favorite) photos of the newlyweds driving off into royal matrimonial bliss in Prince Charles' vintage Aston Martin -- that really bring back the magic.

In honor of Will and Kate's fifth anniversary, relive all the glorious details below.
