Prince William & Duchess Kate 
Before they were officially the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton tied the knot on April 29, 2011, at Westminster Abbey after dating on and off since 2003. Kate stunned in a long sleeve, lace Alexander McQueen dress and one of Queen Elizabeth II’s tiaras as they exchanged vows in front of  1,900 guests, including Elton John and David and Victoria Beckham.

Harry served as William’s best man, while Kate’s sister, Pippa Middleton, was her maid of honor. After a carriage ride to Buckingham Palace, the newlyweds were cheered on by adoring citizens as they shared two kisses on the palace balcony. The ceremony was viewed by tens of millions of people around the world, with 23 million U.S. viewers.

The pair recently celebrated their seven-year wedding anniversary and have two children: Prince George, 4, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, who was born on April 26.

Prince Charles & Princess Diana 
Years before William and Harry were born, Prince Charles and Princess Diana wed on July 29, 1981, at St. Paul’s cathedral in front of 3,500 guests. Diana, who was only 19 at the time, looked gorgeous in a gown designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel that had such a long train it barely fit in the carriage she rode in to the ceremony.

The duo were the first couple to share kiss on the balcony of Buckingham Palace in front of the crowd and 750 million people around the world watched their nuptials.

Charles and Diana welcomed William and Harry in 1982 and 1984, respectively, but their marriage ultimately ended in divorce in August 1996. Diana died after a car accident in August 1997 at 36 years old.

Zach, who added that Jackson is a “LP” (little person) like him, gushed that when he first held his son, it felt “super surreal” but also “natural.”

“He might have to take two steps for everyone else’s one step, but hopefully we can raise him in a way that it won’t bother him,” the TLC star added.

As previously reported, Jackson was born on May 12 and weighed 9 pounds, 1 ounce and was 20.5 inches long. “Mom and Dad are so in love with you already,” Tori shared alongside a family photo on Instagram from the hospital to announce Jackson’s arrival last month.

Jackson is the first grandchild for Zach’s parents, Matt and Amy Roloff. Tori and Zach got engaged in April 2014 and tied the knot on the Roloff family farm in Oregon in July 2015.
