Duchess Kate and Prince William met at the university at the tender age of 19. Since then she has always been a great support for him.
London – It’s almost a love story straight out of a fairy tale: beautiful commoners meet a charming prince. The two get to know each other tentatively and then realize that they are made for each other. At least Duchess Kate (40) and Prince William (39) seem to have felt something similar when they met when they were just 19 years old.
At the time, both were studying art history at the renowned St. Andrews University in Scotland, and Prince William later switched to geography. At the latest after a charity fashion show, he was very enthusiastic about the 40-year-old when she floated lightly dressed on the catwalk, reports 24royal.de.*
Duchess Kate: She saved Prince William after Diana’s death, says expert
At first, today’s model couple is said to have only been friends, even lived with other roommates in a flat share. The tender romance developed from this, and in 2011 the dream wedding followed. Their love was crowned by their three children*, Prince George* (8), Princess Charlotte* (6) and Prince Louis* (3). Duchess Kate* has not only been by the side of the former British heir to the throne for years, but has also experienced many ups and downs with him.
When they met, William is said to have been in a dark phase, knows royal expert Angela Levin. She is the author of the biography “Harry: Biography of a Prince” (in German about: “Harry: Biografie eines Prinzen”) and has now chatted about the royal sewing box in the TV show “Royal Beat”. This is reported by the British “Mirror”.
Duchess Kate: This is how she influenced Prince William
She believes it was a stroke of luck for Prince William* to have met Kate at the time. “I think Kate helped save William. I think it was very difficult for him coming from a dysfunctional family, losing his mother so early and I think he was going through a difficult period.”
But Kate never stopped supporting him, her “whole life revolves around making him happy,” Levin believes. In addition, since the wedding eleven years ago, she has been working hard to help William with his royal duties *. At the same time, says the expert, she helped him to find his own identity. “She found things that are really important and worthy of him instead of just cutting ribbons with scissors.”
And Levin concludes by adding that it not only affected their marriage, but also their family life together with their children*: “She helped him to be a husband by introducing him to her own family and him spending time with a normal one family could spend. That’s how he found out what being a father means.” * 24royal.de and Merkur.de are offered by IPPEN.MEDIA.
