July 22, 2013 a child was born, who was the first in the history of the British monarchy to get the title of His Royal Highness the Prince of Cambridge. The mother of this new Royal Baby is Kate Middleton. She inspires a lot of people just as her husband’s mother, Princess Diana did. Not having any title, she was able to win the heart of the most eligible groom in the UK – Prince William. Kate Middleton has become an icon of British style and good humor. She possesses good manners and shows good taste in all that she does.
The future wife of Prince William was born on January 9, 1982 in the county of Berkshire in a family of aviation workers.
Kate’s parents paid special attention to her education. First she studied at Marlborough college, then moved to the British University in Florence, Italy and in 2001 was admitted to St. Andrews University in Scotland, where she met her love.
They say the strongest love starts with true friendship. Kate and William were just friends for some period of time. But later William said that Kate immediately charmed him with her personality.
It’s believed that they started dating after a student charity show. William gave 200 pounds for the ticket in the first row to support his friend. Kate appeared on the catwalk in a transparent dress and lingerie that actually made him reconsider his attitude. The night after the show William tried to kiss Kate but was rejected.
After a while they moved in together with other friends to share an apartment. They insisted that she was just a flatmate but probably they developed their love relationship living together.
The first joint photos of the couple were made in the Swiss ski resort of Klosters in March 2004. At that time people believed that the couple was in a serious relationship.
They both graduated in 2005 and for the frist time their families met each other. The day after the headlines of newspapers stated “Queen came to see her future grand daughter – in – law”
Imagine universal shock when after vacation in Zermatt, Switzerland, in 2007, the couple announced a separation. That was most likely due to William’s decision not to get married early . The reporters even named Kate as ” Waity Kate”. Nevertheless, a few months later the couple decided they would give their relationship a second chance and again began to appear together at numerous events.
Yes! In 2011, Clarence House announced that Prince William and Kate were officially engaged after a long term relationship and during their holiday in Kenya.
Kate finally showed off the sapphire engagement ring to the public. She was beaming with pleasure! The ring was very special to her as it had originally belonged to Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana.
A wedding date was set and Buckingham Palace started the preparation. April 29, 2011 Prince William and Kate Middleton became husband and wife.
Kate arrived at Westminster Abbey at 11 am in a stunning dress designed by Alexander McQueen and creative director Sarah Burton. Catherine completed her image with a dazzling Queen’s tiara.
On July 22, 2013, a new prince was born – Prince George – and with him a new national obsession.
