HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

William & Kate

A LOOK BACK AT THE ROYAL COUPLE’S MOST TENDER MOMENTS OVER THEIR EIGHT YEARS AS HUSBAND AND WIFE

Image

The world stood still on April 29, 2011 when Prince William, 28, and Catherine Middleton, 29, exchanged vows at London’s historic Westminster Abbey.

The newly created Duke and Duchess of Cambridge said “I do” in front of 1,900 guests, including foreign royal family members and heads of state. Thousands of well-wishers from around the world flocked to London to witness the spectacle and pageantry, and at least one million fans gathered outside Buckingham Palace (with Hello! Canada!) to witness the balcony kiss. Actually, romantic William kissed his radiant bride not once but twice!

Rather than vowing to obey her husband, Kate chose to follow the example set by William’s mother, Diana, 30 years earlier by promising to “love him, comfort him, honour and keep him” – paving the way for a lifetime of tender moments.

Today the couple, who first met as students at St. Andrews University, share countless special memories and tender moments from their 16 years together, eight of them as husband and wife. We look back at some of their most memorable moments so far. – SARAH CURRAN

2011

Less than three months into their marriage, William flew to Canada for their first official overseas tour (affectionately known as the “honeymoon tour”). Here, they squeeze in a quick cuddle on Prince Edward Island after taking part in a dragon boat race at Dalvay-By-the-Sea (William’s team won!). Their love affair wasn’t just with each other but with their host country. “Canada has far surpassed all that we were promised ... we shall return,” vowed the young Duke of Cambridge.

In scenes that were surely repeated across the nation, William and Kate hugged in celebration after cyclist Sir Chris Hoy led Great Britain’s men’s sprint team to victory at the London 2012 Summer Olympics. The athletic twosome were there to show their support for England’s athletes including William’s equestrian cousin Zara Tindall, who took home a silver medal. Through their commitment to the Games, the couple displayed not only their passion for sport but also for each other.

And baby makes three! Kate gazes lovingly at her husband as they introduce their first child, Prince George, at St. Mary’s Hospital on July 23. The nation had been waiting with bated breath for the first glimpse of William and Kate’s little prince born a day earlier. “It’s very emotional and such a special time,” said Kate. William jokingly added, “He’s got way more hair than me, thank God,” while also insisting that their baby had inherited his beautiful wife’s looks – “thankfully.”

2014

The “Windsors of Oz” spread some royal sunshine during their three-week tour Down Under in the spring of 2014. The tour marked the couple’s first official trip with George, who quickly became the star of the show. The family of three started off in New Zealand before travelling to Australia. Displaying their ever-blossoming love for each other, William and Kate shared a rare private moment as the prince presented his wife with a flower in the kangaroo enclosure of Taronga Zoo. How romantic!

2015

Years before Harry and Meghan held hands, William and Kate looked more in love than ever as they proudly introduced their second baby – a much hoped-for little girl – on May 2. Tucked up in her car seat, Princess Charlotte was carried to her elated parents’ vehicle by dad William, who helped Kate with his other hand before driving the family home. “It is the perfect result for the perfect couple,” said Kate’s uncle Gary Goldsmith, voicing the sentiment of fans around the world.

2016

On their most colourful tour to date, a seven-day adventure in India and Bhutan, the duke and duchess surpassed all expectations, charming everyone they met – from street children to Bollywood superstars – and shining a light on some of the causes they care about so passionately. The couple were openly affectionate, sharing lots of laughs. Here, art history major Kate teases her husband about his artistic skills as he applies paint to an elephant statue.

2017

Image

William and Kate struck a nautical note, showing off their friendly rivalry on an official visit to Germany. In the university town of Heidelberg, the active couple channelled their competitive spirit in a rowing race on the River Neckar, each coxing a local amateur crew. “No pressure, but I do want to beat my husband,” a laughing duchess told her team. She lost the race but won the next best thing: a consoling hug from her handsome husband, who tried not to look too smug.

2018

Image

Now a party of five, the duke and duchess gaze lovingly into each other’s eyes after welcoming their youngest child, Prince Louis, on April 23 – just six days before their seventh wedding anniversary. Kate has said that William’s grandparents, the Queen and Prince Philip, are her relationship role models. “To have the support of your husband there by your side on [official] occasions, and behind closed doors as well, I think is really special,” she said in a documentary marking the Queen’s 90th birthday.

2019

Image

Date night! William and Kate exuded movie-idol glamour as they graced the BAFTAs – Britain’s equivalent of the Academy Awards. As the couple entered the auditorium, a hush fell over the entire gathering of stars, who silently rose to their feet to honour their royal guests. “It’s so quiet!” giggled Kate. Despite being surrounded by Hollywood royalty, she and William gravitated toward each other like two people who had just fallen in love – cementing their status yet again as one of the world’s most loved and cherished couples.

It is important and true to understand that God is our intimate Father. It is one the rich qualities that makes Christianity distinct from all other faiths.

FactChecker: Does ‘Abba’ Mean ‘Daddy’?
by Glenn Stanton | May 13, 2013

When listening to a sermon on the Fatherhood of God, we’ve heard it more times than we can probably count: the illustration that when Jesus refers to his Father as abba, it is a very comfortable, deeply intimate child-like term, interpreted as either papa or daddy. Jesus uses the term once in Mark’s gospel and Paul uses it two times in Romans and Galatians.

Of course, the bible teacher or pastor’s purpose in explaining the word abba this way is to show us that Jesus had a very intimate relationship with his father, not stoic or merely positional. It is what a loving father has with his son and the son who lives securely and comfortably in that love. It is an important message—and it is true.

You can’t read John 17, Jesus’ intimate and passionate prayer to his Father the evening before his brutal and sacrificial death, and not see this tender intimacy. You see it also in John 1:18 where some versions have it that Jesus dwells “in the bosom of the Father.” Ask someone you know well if you can sit at their side. They will be happy and honored to have you do so. Ask them if you can dwell at their bosom and you’ll get a different reaction. We also see this Father/Son intimacy at Jesus’ baptism where the Father proclaims from heaven to us all his extravagant love and pride in his Son.

This intimacy and love between the divine Father and his Son is as true as the existence of God himself, for it is his very nature. But it is simply not true that Jesus’ use of the word abba means something a small child would utter in reference to his father. It does not mean “daddy” or “papa.”

This origin of this understanding is generally traced to the notable German Lutheran New Testament scholar Joachim Jeremias who in his 1971 text New Testament Theology _explained that _abba was “the chatter of a small child. . . . a children’s word, used in everyday talk” and seemingly “disrespectful, indeed unthinkable to the sensibilities of Jesus’ contemporaries to address God with this familiar word” (p. 67). While Jeremias did not use the word “daddy” or “papa” in relation to abba, the implication was strong and others came along to make that connection.

But other Hebrew and New Testament scholars have taken exception with this understanding.

University of Fribourg’s Georg Schelbert critiqued Jeremias’ assertion in a 1981 essay and then later in a 2011 book-length treatment entitled ABBA Vater. He contends that Jeremias’ interpretation is in “error” and “unwarranted.” He elaborates,

In the Aramaic language of the time of Jesus, there was absolutely no other word [than Abba] available if Jesus wished to speak of or address God as father. Naturally such speaking of and addressing thereby would lose its special character, for it is then indeed the only possible form!

This is because, as we shall see, abba means either “father” or one’s own father. Schelbert explained that Jeremias even adjusted his earlier understanding in the face of critical peers.

Schelbert was followed by Professor Geza Vermes, a most important scholarly voice on the Jewishness of Jesus. In his book, Jesus and the World of Judaism (Fortress, 1983), Vermes calls out the “improbability and incongruousness of the theory” and that “there seems to be no linguistic support for it.” (p.42). Vermez holds, in agreement with Schelbert, that abba can either be understood as “the father” or the more personal, “my father.”

This criticism was followed up a few years later with an essay in the Journal of Theological Studies by James Barr (vol. 39, 1988). His article, “Abba Isn’t Daddy” explains:

It is fair to say that abba in Jesus’ time belonged to a familiar or colloquial register of language, as distinct from more formal and ceremonious language. . . . But in any case it was not a childish expression comparable with ‘Daddy’: it was a more solemn, responsible, adult address to a Father. (p. 46)

Although he explains that in Jesus’ time, this address was used by a father’s children of all ages, young and adult, it was often used by small children. Barr adds,

If the New Testament writers had been conscience of the nuance ‘Daddy’ they could easily have expressed themselves so; but in fact they were well aware that the nuance is not that of ‘Daddy’ but of ‘father’.” . . . [T]he semantics of abba itself [based on various evidences] all agree in supporting the nuance ‘father’ than the nuance ‘Daddy’.” (p. 38)

It is important and true to understand that God is our intimate Father. So many places in the New Testament make this vividly and encouragingly clear. It is one the rich qualities that makes Christianity distinct from all other faiths and philosophies.

But let’s not illustrate this grace for others with something that is not true.

Pastor Allen Parker told ABC 13 that many of Jesus’ most important moments happened while he was naked. “When he was born he was naked, when he was crucified he was naked and when he arose he left his clothes in the tomb and he was naked,” he said. “If God made us that way, how can that be wrong?”
