Rum and coke, cheese and crackers, William and Kate...some things just go together perfectly. We celebrate the Cambridge's 12-year royal romance. Now say 'aww'!
Prince William and Kate Middleton a royal love story! After one break-up, two children and twelve years together William and Kate are our favourite royal couple. She’s the ‘normal’ girl who snagged herself a bonafied prince – how Disney is that?! Here are our favourite Cambridge moments…
So this is what is takes to hook a prince! Kate, then 19, took part in a university fashion show, strutting down the catwalk in this barely-there sheath dress. Prince William paid £200 for a ticket and apparently whispered to his friend, ‘She’s hot!’ Shocker – Kate was actually seeing another student at the time. But the prince got his girl and the pair’s relationship was confirmed in 2004 when they were pictured skiing together.
Royalty can party, too! William and Kate leave London hotspot Boujis in 2006. After graduating the year before – Kate in Art History and Wills in Geography – the prince embarked on his military career at Sandhurst, while Kate landed a job at Jigsaw as a buyer.
Boooo Kate and Will split up in 2007 to the sorrow of the nation. But hoorah, they were back together just a few months later and things were getting serious. Here they are on another ski holiday in 2008 with his family.
Both William and Kate love sports. Some of our favourite Cambridge moments have occurred during tense sporting moments (remember that clinch during the olympics?). Here there are watching the rugby, looking truly relaxed and content.
He put a ring on it!!! Prince William proposed to Kate during a getaway to Kenya in October 2010. Kate chose a navy Issa dress to complement her sapphire engagement ring, which belonged to William’s mum, Diana.
When Kate was pregnant the couple had to reveal their happy news a bit earlier than they’d wanted due to Kate’s intense morning sickness. Prince George Alexander Louis was born on 22 July 2013 and Kate emerged looking serene, of course!
