Duchess Kate reportedly went on a mischievous streak in her boarding school days. It included flashing her bottom at the boys out of the window.
It is something surprising, coming from Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge joined the prestigious Marlborough College midway through the academic year in 1996. It was after being bullied by other girls at Downe House. That is an all girls boarding school in Berkshire. According to an old documentary, Kate had very little confidence when she first arrived at Marlborough.
Things weren’t like that always.
However, after her GCSEs, Kate took a trip to Argentina with the hockey team. And then, she went on a family holiday to the Caribbean. During that summer, she started doing her hair and using make up. The Duchess of Cambridge’s confidence grew. Reports also say that she allowed herself to indulge in some juvenile behaviour.
Royal author Christopher Andersen claimed: “She had a mischievous streak”. This, according to another royal commentator included flashing her bottom at the boys out of the window. Mr Andersen added: “She was so famous for this at the school, that she became known as Kate Middlebum”.
Despite being at the top of the ‘Fit List’, it doesn’t appear Kate was in as many relationships as some of her contemporaries while at Marlborough. According to one of her friends, she was consciously saving herself for someone special while at college. Kate left the boarding school in July 2000 to attend St Andrews University.
There she met her future husband.
The Duke of Cambridge, William, by contrast, attended Eton College in Berkshire. There, he was later joined by his younger brother, Harry. According to some recent reports, Prince George might not follow in his father’s footsteps by attending the elite Eton College.
Last month, sources close to the royal couple told the Daily Mail they are considering Marlborough college for their son. They said: “Eton hasn’t been ruled out. But they have talked at length about Marlborough as an option. And the smart money is on George going there instead”.
