In 1995, Princes William and Harry were already on their way to two different destinies. And in 2014, we see that the close brothers are indeed taking very different paths.
! In History: Prince William and Prince Harry
On Tuesday, Prince William and his wife the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, celebrated their third wedding anniversary.
The gorgeous ceremony in 2011 was broadcast around the world, as thousands gathered outside Westminster Abbey and along the procession route while others gazed at the screens set up throughout the country at street parties, or simply watched from the comfort of their own homes.
Three years on, Prince William has been preparing for further royal duties, as in 2013 he left his post as a search and rescue pilot with the Royal Air Force.
As Queen Elizabeth has officially began to hand over more royal duties, the 31-year-old recently returned to the UK with his family following a hugely successful Royal Tour of New Zealand and Australia.

At the wedding, Prince Harry was Prince William’s best man, as the two brothers are incredibly close.
But as Prince William celebrated an anniversary with his wife and nine-month-old son Prince George, Harry was spending time planning a party for his charity Sentable as it was revealed that his two year relationship with Cressida Bonas had ended.
The pair have “paused for a breather” say friends, adding that Cressida is determined to focus on her career and that Harry “is really keen that she is allowed to get on with her life.”
The split was unexpected as many royal fans believed an engagement was on the cards as Cressida and Harry had begun to attend many events together publicly over the last month.
Prince Harry, 29, has now began to throw himself into his chosen charities, making plans for a fun-filled 10th birthday party for Sentable.
And early in 2014 Prince Harry quit his job as an Army Air Corp helicopter pilot amid plans to spearhead an ambitious attempt to bring the injured servicemen’s “Olympics”, known as the Warrior Games in the US, to London.
Titled the Invictus Games for the UK, Harry recently visited a Help For Heroes rehabilitation centre in Wiltshire as trials began to select 100 members of the British Armed Forces to compete in the Invictus Games in September.
