Prince William and Duchess Catherine have low-key celebration

Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge enjoyed a low-key wedding anniversary yesterday.

Britain's Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated their third wedding anniversary yesterday in a low-key, private fashion.

The couple - who have nine-month-old son Prince George together - celebrated three years of marriage but had no plans to mark the milestone in a big way as they are still recovering from their 19-day tour of Australia and New Zealand, from which they returned at the weekend.

Instead, a royal spokesperson said they would celebrate "privately" and it is believed they spent the day with Duchess Catherine's parents.

Although couples traditionally exchange leather gifts on their third anniversary, it was recently revealed Prince William gave his wife - who was known as Kate Middleton before her marriage - a luxury watch as an early gift to mark the milestone.

The duchess wore the Cartier item - which is worth £3,600, made of stainless steel and embedded with a sapphire - every day on their Australasia tour.

Last year, the couple spent their wedding anniversary apart, with Catherine - who was then six months pregnant - visiting a children's hospice and William away on duty in north Wales as an RAF search and rescue pilot.

They spent their first anniversary at a friend's wedding, before spending the night at a £164-a-night pub.
