When Kate Middleton and Prince William first got together during their college days, their huge fan base knew it would last forever. Ultimately it did, however, there were a few bumps in the road along the way.
Just like many couples of the same age, William and Kate went through a very high-profile breakup at one point in their relationship. When we observe the Cambridge family nowadays, we hardly ever think that there was a time when they were not together. William and Kate are parents to three beautiful children, and they seemingly belong together.
It is easy to forget that after the couple had been together for four years, they called it quits for a while.
So, did Prince William really follow Kate Middleton around ‘like a lost puppy’ after their famous breakup?
A breakup that took place in the spotlight
When a young Will first laid eyes on Kate at the University of Saint Andrews, he was absolutely smitten. According to InStyle, he paid approximately $275 to see Kate walk in a now-famous see-through dress for a charity fashion show.
The couple began dating while they were both still students at the university and their relationship made it through the first four years. In 2007, Harper’s Bazaar can report that William and Kate decided to end their relationship. The prince broke up with his girlfriend by telephone while she was at work, telling her that being with him wasn’t “fair” to her.
Kate was pretty upset about the breakup
Just as anyone would expect, Kate wasn’t exactly happy that William decided to end things with her. According to Parade, she said in their engagement interview that she wasn’t “happy” about the breakup, but that in the end, it “made her a stronger person.”
During the time when they weren’t together, Kate certainly didn’t sit at home feeling sorry for herself! Instead, she spent her time with friends, hitting up clubs in London, and having a great time despite that fact that she and William were apart.
William definitely missed Kate
It would appear as if William certainly knew that he made a huge mistake by breaking up with Kate. The only thing is, The Sun reports that Kate had been hurt pretty badly by Will, and she wasn’t going to make it easy for him. When William invited Kate to a “Freakin’ Naughty-themed” fancy dress party, to which she arrived dressed as a sexy nurse in an outfit that left little to the imagination, he followed her around like a lost puppy.
Looks like even the future king couldn’t resist pretty Kate in a short dress and fishnet stockings, and by the time the night was over, they were officially back on.
Kate and William move forward with their relationship
Royal fans couldn’t be happier that William and Kate were able to work things out and resume their relationship. As we all know, they got married in 2011, in a ceremony that was broadcast around the world. A couple of years later, they welcomed their first son, Prince George, who is third in line to the throne.
Two years later, the adorable Princess Charlotte arrived, and finally, in 2018, the royal couple introduced Prince Louis to the world. Although Kate, as well as millions of fans, were pretty upset about the breakup, we have to say that their relationship is truly meant to be. They always look extremely happy whenever we see them, and we couldn’t imagine if they weren’t together.
