Prince William reveals Kate’s awkward reaction when she first met him.


It has been 7 years since William and Kate got married to each other. We have seen them since then. But, what about the time before their marriage?

 Let’s have a look at what happened when this royal couple first met. 

Kate Middleton has admitted she was nervous and went bright red when she first met her husband, Prince William. The Duchess of Cambridge confessed that she actually felt shy when she was first introduced to Prince William at university in 2001.

Both met at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.

Kate said in an interview: “I actually went bright red when I met William and scuttled off feeling very shy about meeting him. William wasn’t there for quite a bit of the time initially”.

“He wasn’t there for the Fresher’s Week, so it did take a bit of time for us to get to know each other. But we did become very close friends from quite early on”.

However, Prince William revealed he couldn’t remember their first meeting as vividly as Kate.

The Duke of Cambridge said: “I would have to wrack my brains to recall when I first met my wife, whom I have three children with”.

Kate and William began dating during their university years. However, they took a brief split. They have both described this in a previous interview in positive terms.

The break was said to have taken place over the Christmas period in 2006.

The Duke said: “We did split up for a bit. We were both very young. It was at university and we were both finding ourselves and being different characters and stuff”.

“It was very much trying to find our own way while we were growing up. It was just a bit of space and it worked out for the better”.

Kate then added: “At the time I wasn’t very happy about it. But it actually made me a stronger person. You find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn’t realised”.

“I think you can get quite consumed by a relationship when you’re younger. I really valued that time”.
