Kensington Palace marked the occasion with a tweet sharing photos from the couple’s 2011 wedding at Westminster Abbey.
🎊 8 years ago today — thank you for your lovely messages on The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding anniversary! pic.twitter.com/jDiIk7bs2V— Kensington Palace (@KensingtonRoyal) April 29, 2019
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.

The duke and duchess are, however, slated to visit Wales together in early May.
