After a build-up of the world’s media outside St Mary’s Hospital’s Lindo Wing, the news finally arrived that Prince George was born at 4.24pm on 22 July, 2013. “That just sort of was a good foundation, because I do generally believe now that being friends with one another is a massive advantage. And it just went from there.” “We just spent more time with each other, had a good giggle, had lots of fun and realised we shared the same interests and just had a really good time.”

August 2, 2012: Kate Middleton and Prince William attend the Olympic Games

The royal couple took time to speak with mourners outside the Norwich Gates of Sandringham House, including Bex Neeve from the county of Norfolk. “Kate said it’s been overwhelming and she and William are very grateful for everyone being here. She was emotional. They seemed like they were here to soak up all the love.” On June 23, the couple stopped by the University of Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum where they viewed their first official joint portrait as it was revealed to the public for the first time.

Royal baby hysteria took over in December 2012 when St James Palace announced the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were expecting their first child. The 11-day tour also included a couple of days in California, USA before flying home. Prince William had proposed in October during the couple’s holiday in Kenya, using Princess Diana’s sapphire and diamond ring to pop the question.

Kate Middleton and Prince William had a tough time during the 2020 pandemic

It’s a decision that follows royal tradition, as kings-to-be have not typically worn wedding bands. Almost two years after their marriage in April 2011, Kate Middleton and Prince William announced that they were pregnant with their first child. Kate was still in her first trimester but decided to divulge that she was pregnant when she was spotted leaving the hospital, reportedly for “severe morning sickness.” While on a safari trip to Kenya in October 2010, Prince William proposed to Kate Middleton with his late mother Princess Diana’s 18-carat sapphire and diamond engagement ring. Reported that Prince William was ditching dorm life to move into a posh flat with three college friends—one of them a “20-year-old brunette.” The brunette turned out to be Kate Middleton, and their friendship turned into a full-on royal marriage.


For the first time, Kate was granted a Royal Protection officer on the slopes – and in a further sign of her importance within royal circles, Prince Charles joined them later on during their stay. By January, lawyers for the Princess-to-be announced they were considering legal action over the photographers tracking her every move, and in response Britain’s newspapers banned the use of paparazzi pictures. However, in March she lodged a complaint to the Press Complaints Commission over a paparazzi photograph published in the Daily Mirror, showing her on her way to work with a takeaway coffee. It’s thought that Kate first won William’s affection after she took part in a charity fashion show in March 2002.

A passionate audience, raised on stories of Diana’s charisma and admiration for the queen as an icon of aging, was ready to see Kate take on the mantle, and click they did. After a happy few years of dating, aside from a short break during their final exams, everything seemed to be going well. They went to Kenya on safari, jetted off on a romantic ski trip to Klosters, and Kate was even invited to Sandringham for the royal family’s traditional Christmas lunch – the first royal girlfriend to have ever been invited.

In other royal news, the Queen has made a heartbreaking change to her social media following Prince Philip’s death. Willem, who studied Classics at Oxford University and has been a correspondent for CBS News, was also attended the royal wedding in 2011. It seems there are no hard feelings though, as Rupert and his then-girlfriend Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs were invited to the royal wedding in 2011. The couple’s love story began when they met way back in 2001, both students in residence at St Salvator’s Hall at the University of St Andrews. At the same time, she announced she was receiving end-of-life care and would be looked after at her parents’ home in Surrey.

On 23 November, there’s more great wedding news, when it’s announced the royal nuptials will take place on 29 April, 2011. They’ve toured the world together, attended events side-by-side and have even showed the odd display of public affection along the way, much to the delight willow app customer support of royal enthusiasts who champion their union. “Wishing The Princess of Wales a very Happy Birthday today,” the official royal family Instagram account, helmed by King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla, captioned a photo of Kate taken during a recent visit to Wales.

William and Kate marked their first official visit to Ireland with a three-day trip in Dublin, County Meath, County Kildare and Galway. William, for his part, explained the reasoning behind his decision to split from Kate for a short while. “It was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up so it was just a bit of space, and it worked out for the better,” he said at the time. The two would go on to keep quiet about their romance as they completed their education, but later had a high-profile split in 2007.

The royal couple marked their 10th wedding anniversary (opens in new tab) in 2021 with some specially commissioned portraits that show the two just as much as in love now as they were then. Ten years after marrying her prince, Kate has become more confident as a public figure and grown increasingly comfortable in her role as a duchess. She has mastered the art of small talk at engagements and aligned with charities she is passionate about, all while supplying a steady stream of covetable outfits. She’s in many ways nothing like the woman who walked down the aisle, yet we watched her get here one day at a time. As early as the now notorious 2016 headline “Harry’s New Girl Is (Almost) Straight Outta Compton,” the attention heaped on Meghan was just as prurient as tabloid conversation about Kate, but much more acidic.

Prince William and Middleton visited Sandringham to view the bouquets, balloons and other tributes left by the public in Queen Elizabeth’s honor. The outing marked the pair’s first solo appearance as the Prince and Princess of Wales. The Princess of Wales title was once held by Prince William’s mother, the late Princess Diana. King Charles III made the official announcement during his first address to the United Kingdom after Queen Elizabeth died.

They shared a love of life in the country, and were both fans of horses and hunting. The Middleton family moved to the country when Kate was just two years old, and they even released a photograph from their time in the country. The under-the-radar trip took place earlier that year when the family-of-five visited the ancient city of Petra. And the family-of-five were reportedly spotted on a ski break in Courchevel, France, last Easter.
