Kate is currently on tour in Scotland with her husband Prince William where they visited a youth centre and the Duchess of Cambridge was able to show off her djing skills. It is also where the couple first met as young students at St Andrews University. Kate and William actually planned a romantic dinner date at a restaurant in St Andrews however, while eating at Frogan’s, word started to spread around that the royal couple were in the area, which led to a crowd standing outside of the restaurant. The Duchess of Cambridge first captured William’s attention when she wore a revealing dress for a charity catwalk fashion show in 2002.
According to reports, the young prince was not particularly happy with his first year in university however, when he saw Kate strut her stuff on the catwalk, he appeared to have a change of heart.
In the documentary ‘William and Kate; A True Love Story’ former BBC royal correspondent, Michael Cole shared some insight into Kate’s personality.
Mr Cole explained: “Somebody said to her ‘aren’t you very fortunate to be going out with Prince William’ and she said ‘no – he is very lucky to be going out with me!’
“And even though she came from several steps down the ladder, she never considered for a moment that she was a lesser person.
“And I think that she is also a very mature person, almost very motherly.”
The Middleton family earned the respect of the Royal Family because they have always remained dignified and private.
Kate dated William for eight years before he proposed to her during a holiday to Kenya.
Her mother Carole Middleton had anxiously asked William when he planned on making an honest woman for her daughter to which he replied by saying that he and Kate “would be married” after “completing his military training”.
During their courtship, the Duchess of Cambridge had been given the name ‘waity Katie’ by the press because of the length of time it was taking her now husband to propose.
Earlier this year, Kate’s sister-in-law Meghan Markle sat down with Oprah Winfrey to give her version of events surrounding a flower girl dress fitting that resulted in both women crying and disputing who made who cry.
In 2018, reports began to surface about tensions between the ladies rising and eventually both Meghan and Harry moved out of Kensington Palace and into Frogmore Cottage before settling down in California.
When talking about the flower girl incident that occurred prior to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s wedding in 2018, Meghan said she was not trying to be “disparaging to anyone,” but that Kate was the one who made her cry.

Meghan added: “It was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something, but she owned it, she brought flowers and a note apologising.”
And although Kate has not spoken publicly about Meghan’s comments she is said to have been “mortified” at the idea of the situation being brought back up.
Royal correspondent Katie Nicholl said: “Kate felt it was all sorted, so to have brought it all back up again was mortifying.
“Kate is not in a position to respond, Meghan and Harry know that.”
