Kate Middleton and Prince William recall first years of marriage

Kate, 34, and William, 33, lived as a married couple on the Welsh island for a few years, when the Duke served as a search and rescue pilot for the RAF.

The couple stepped out on Thursday in order to attend an event marking the end of more than 75 years of helicopter search-and-rescue service at Royal Air Force Valley.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who was dressed up in red LK Bennett coat accessorized with a dark brown Lock & Co hat, talked with Group Captain Steve Bentley and his wife Fyona about the time that the royal couple spent in Anglesey.

“It was such a special time for us,” Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s mother said. “It was the start of our life together, really.”

Kensington Palace posted pictures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge from the event, from the ceremony and from the reception.

The Royal couple also visited North Wales last November when they carried out royal engagements there.

Prince William and Duchess Kate will visit Bhutan this spring.
