Prince William and Kate Middleton are one of the most famous couples in the world. They are happily married now, with three beautiful children. But their relationship wasn’t so perfect always. There was a time Prince William and Kate Middleton broke up, and it was at the time everyone was waiting for them to announce their engagement.
Why did they break up, and how long did that break up lasted? We are going to tell you all the details.
When did they break up?
Prince William saw Kate Middleton for the first time when she was walking the runway for a charity fashion show at the college, they both attended, St. Andrew’s University. The two of them met, and in not long after that, they started dating in 2004. They were in a serious relationship and they even living together with other two friends from college.
Everything seemed to be perfect, but it wasn’t. They couldn’t just live like normal people and enjoy their relationship. The media and tabloids were all over their relationship and all over Kate Middleton, just like they did with Williams previous girlfriends. Everyone was interested to know will he propose her on not. And after some time, in April 2007 they just split up. Prince William wasn’t so sure is Kate the right fit for him and is there a future for their relationship. He said that he thinks that it just isn’t going to work. And the public was in shock because everyone was thinking that he is going to propose her.
What did they do when they weren’t together?
When Prince William and Kate Middleton broke up, she traveled to Ireland with her mother. And Prince William was partying and going out in clubs with various half-naked models. The public didn’t know yet that they weren’t together, but they assumed it because of Prince William’s behavior. Once he jumped on the table in a club and started dancing while he was shouting that he is free. Then it was clear for everyone that the couple isn’t together anymore.
Was it hard for them?
We can assume that it was hard for both of them, but maybe a little harder for Kate Middleton. During the time of their break up, Kate joined an all-female boat racing team, Sisterhood. But she also started going out to clubs and bars, just like William.
Prince William was performing his royal duties, and he was going out too with his friends. But eventually, the two got back together. Maybe it helped them that both of them were jealous because they were both going out and flirting with other people.
Kate once told that she wasn’t happy at that time and that she didn’t move on. But she is grateful for the time she was alone because it made her a stronger person. She values the time she was alone, and she learned many things.
When did Prince William and Kate Middleton get back together?
It may seem that the break up was long, but that wasn’t the case. They secretly started dating again in early June 2007. It was at a costume party thrown by Prince William at his barracks. Both of them were in costumes and they spent the night dancing together.
They just needed some time alone and a little bit of space to learn about themselves and to realize that they love each other very much. After a few years they got engaged in 2010, and in 2011 they had a big and astonishing royal wedding. Today they are happily married, and they are living their best life with their children.
