Kate Middleton and Prince William celebrate anniversary amid cheating rumors — and Twitter has jokes: 'Too soon'

While the world is still on tenterhooks waiting for Meghan Markle to give birth, her in-laws are celebrating a significant milestone of their own. April 29 marks the eighth wedding anniversary of Kate Middleton and Prince William.

Kensington Palace marked the occasion with a tweet sharing photos from the couple’s 2011 wedding at Westminster Abbey.

But some royal-watchers couldn’t resist referencing rumors that the marriage is on the rocks. Earlier this month Prince William’s lawyers reportedly threatened legal action against the gossip publication In Touch after it claimed he cheated on the duchess with her friend Rose Hanbury. Though Kensington Palace has not yet formally commented on the rumors, Twitter has been abuzz with conspiracy theories and condemnations of the royal’s alleged behavior.

It’s little wonder, then, that a seemingly innocuous post marking his wedding anniversary would garner a little social media side-eye.

All jokes aside, many royal fans had nothing but well wishes for the couple, who have three children. It is unclear if William and Kate will be together to celebrate the anniversary, as he traveled to New Zealand last week while she joined Prince Harry for a special Anzac Day service in London. The duke and duchess are, however, slated to visit Wales together in early May.
