Royal commentator Dan Wootton said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s romance is “in the mould” of the Queen and Prince Philip, not Prince Charles and Princess Diana. Mr Wootton also praised William and Kate, who celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary on Thursday, for balancing tradition with being more modern.
Writing in his latest MailOnline column, Mr Wootton said: “After ten years of marriage, Prince William and Catherine (as she prefers to be known formally, although I still can’t get used to that) clearly represent the Royal Family’s best chance of survival.
“Sure, it hasn’t been easy and there have been significant bumps in the road, but I now truly believe they will break the royal marriage curse and stay together for as long as they are both alive.
“What’s most impressive is they’ve done it their way: Combining the traditional need for the public to feel like they’ve had their pound of flesh while raising a young family in a thoroughly modern way.”
The Cambridges shared two new portraits to mark their wedding anniversary this week.
The couple are seen smiling and cuddling in the pictures.
Mr Wootton said: “And judging by the stunning portraits by the rock photographer Chris Floyd, released to mark the tenth anniversary today, there is nothing to doubt that this royal romance is in the mould of the Queen and Prince Philip, not Prince Charles and Diana.”
The royal commentator added that William and Kate are “so happy” after 10 years of marriage.
He said: “Despite the chaos of Megxit, the shame of Prince Andrew and the pain of losing Prince Philip, William and Kate are more confident in their role.
“They have a plan, they’re going to stick to it and by God they’re going to have some fun along the way.”
The Cambridges tied the knot in a spectacular ceremony at Westminster Abbey on April 29 2011 after an eight-year relationship.
Ten years on, the couple have three children, seven-year-old Prince George, Princess Charlotte, five, and three-year-old Prince Louis.
