Kate Middleton and Prince William’s relationship timeline as the Duchess of Cambridge approaches 40 years old.
KATE MIDDLETON and Prince William’s relationship has seen them overcome many obstacles and grow as people – here are some of their most memorable moments.
Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, turns 40 this week, but her celebrations may be cut short due to COVID-19 fears.
According to reports, Kate’s celebrations will likely be attended by “only close family and friends.”
“There will probably be low-key celebrations for the Duchess,” a source told the Mail on Sunday.
“She didn’t want anything flashy anyway – that’s not her style – but anything is likely to be scaled down in the current climate.”
The Duchess has recently celebrated a number of anniversaries, including her 40th birthday and the tenth anniversary of her marriage to William in April.
The couple met while studying at the University of St Andrews.
They were both taking the same art history class and lived just a few doors apart.
They also shared a passion for sports and fitness, regularly running together in the morning.
According to reports, it wasn’t until a fashion show at the university that William began to see Kate as more than just a friend.
According to the Mirror, when Kate appeared on the show in a sheer black gown, William said to a friend, “Wow, Kate’s hot!”
Ingrid Seward, a royal expert, believes this was the turning point in William’s relationship with Kate.
“Kate and William’s relationship began as a friendship, but when Kate did that catwalk show, he really looked at her as more than a lovely friend,” she told the Mirror.
Early dates were very straightforward.
“They used to go to Ma Bells and they were very discreet.”
“William would show up first, and Kate would show up later, but they would never be together.”
William wanted to keep it a secret for as long as possible.
“In their second year, they shared an apartment together, and it was there that their relationship took off.
“I believe that was the point at which their romance blossomed.”
William and Kate’s relationship hit a snag in 2007, when they split up for a short time.
According to April 2007 reports, William broke up with Kate over a phone call she received while she was at work.
