It has been a year since millions tuned into the fairytale wedding of Prince William and Catherine.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have kept quiet about their plans to mark their first wedding anniversary, but officials say it will be a private low-key affair.

The pair is expected to spend part of the weekend with friends to mark the day in low-key style, according to reports, far different from the extravagant wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey in London.

It has been an eventful 12 months since the wedding, including honeymooning in Seychelles, before a tour of America and Canada and a stint in Wales where William works as a helicopter pilot.

The two were married on April 29 last year in front of 1,900 guests and a television audience estimated at two billion.
Millions lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the couple on their special day.

Meanwhile, Catherine is looking to Queen Elizabeth as an example of how to work as a royal.

The 30-year-old beauty is believed to get on well with the queen and is learning how to be in the royal family by watching her.

Royal biographer Sally Bedell Smith told The Sunday Times: When the queen and Philip took Kate to Leicester for the first jubilee visit outside London I was struck by the body language they had and how clearly fond of each other they are.

I think she is looking to the queen as an example - you can see in the way she comports herself with a certain discipline.

The queen is not the only member of the royal family Catherine enjoys spending time with - it was recently revealed she has also been meeting with her father-in-law Prince Charles to discuss cultural issues.

A source said: She and Prince Charles spend a lot of time together.

They go on visits to the opera and art galleries; they share passions that neither William or his brother Harry share. They get on very well.

[Queen Elizabeth] has also made a lot of time for the duchess. They have a warm relationship as was evidenced when they went to Leicester.
