Considering that Cressida Bonas just made her first official appearance with Prince Harry, it seems only fitting to take a look at Kate Middleton's big debut as Prince William's plus-one.

After all, it is Flashback Friday, people.

Let's take a look at when Kate first officially attended a royal event, all the way back in 2006.

The now Duchess of Cambridge made a splash in a bold red coat and Philip Treacy black hat at the Passing Out Parade ceremony at Sandhurst.

Middleton was seen in the front row cheering on her beau and attended the affair with her parents, Michael and Carole Middleton.

The event wasn't the first time that the brunette beauty was seen on the arm of William, however, as she had been quietly dating the royal for years prior.

In fact, the two attended a society wedding in 2005 and were seen on many occasions out and about in London.

But let's flash-forward to yesterday evening, when Cressie and Harry made their first official debut as a couple at the We Day in the U.K.

The redheaded royal made a speech to over 12,000 students at the inaugural event benefiting Free the Children, an international charity working to engage and empower young people to work together towards ending poverty. 

The two were seen showing off some adorable PDA in the stands shortly after the 29-year-old made his speech.

Looks like we'll be seeing much more of Cressida and Harry together!
