Kate Middleton is living a real-life fairy tale, and as is to be expected, she's clearly head-over-heels in love with her Prince Charming. All these years later, Kate is still swooning over Will -- not that anyone can really blame her. He's smart, sexy, clearly enamored of her, and oh yeah, there's that whole royal, future king thing too, which certainly doesn't hurt. All joking aside, though, it's easy to see that Kate and William always make each other a priority. They're incredibly busy and always on the go, but they always manage to find time for each other. William and Kate also aren't afraid to let it be known that their marriage couldn't be any stronger. 

These two are rock solid, which is hard enough in a regular marriage, let alone one where the public is constantly watching their every move. 

Check out some of the sweetest things Kate has said about her charming hubby and his famous family. Making the transition from being a commoner to a royal can't have been easy for Kate, but at this point, she's a pro, and is in it for the long haul. And she's passed all of her challenges with flying colors -- like a true duchess! Prince William must be so proud to call her his -- and the rest of the crew is fortunate to have her as a member of the family as well.
