Royal deja vu!

On Tuesday, Kate Middleton and Prince William boarded a horse-drawn carriage in London for the first time since their wedding day. But unlike their royal wedding procession on April 29, 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, 29 and 30, were joined by a third wheel: Prince Harry!

Still, even with Harry, 27, escorting them, the future King and Queen (celebrating the Diamond Jubilee of grandma Queen Elizabeth II) had millions of royal watchers reminiscing about that special day as the trio waved to crowds traveling from Westminster Hall to Buckingham Palace. And Middleton even wore her wedding dress designer -- Alexander McQueen -- for Tuesday's festivities, looking regal in a a pale pink McQueen dress, LK Bennett heels and a Jane Taylor hat.
