Kate Middleton Stopped Prince William From Doing This To His Body
Most of us can think of a time when we wanted to do something but didn’t after talking it over with our significant other. Well, this is also true for the royals as Prince William was apparently thrilled about getting something done on his body but was talked out of it by Kate Middleton.
Here’s exactly what the future king of England was going to get done before Middleton stopped him.
What Middleton talked William out of doing
Back in 2008 when William was serving in the military, he reportedly decided that he wanted to get a large tattoo on his back, similar to the guardian angel former soccer star David Beckham has.
A sailor deployed with the prince on the HMS Iron Duke in the Caribbean told The Sun that William definitely wanted to get the ink but Middleton, who was his girlfriend at the time, didn’t approve of him getting the sizeable artwork.

Prince William and Prince Harry’s cousin, Lady Amelia Windsor, for example, has multiple tattoos.The Daily Mail noted that she has one on each of her wrists as well as a tiger on her shoulder.
Other royal families in Europe don’t seem to have a rule against getting tattoos either as Princess Sofia of Sweden, Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark, and Princess Stéphanie of Monaco all have tattoos.
