The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been the apple of Britain’s eye for quite some time, but there’s still a lot that the general public doesn’t know about them.
It might be hard to fathom that a couple at the forefront of national importance could possibly have any secrets, but we’ve rifled through the archives to find some lesser-known facts about the pair. From wedding night jitters to playground bullies, join us as we take a look into the private lives of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Kate now wears Lady Di’s ring on her wedding finger, but did you know the prized possession was actually supposed to go to Prince Harry?
St. Salvatore’s Sweethearts
If it hadn’t been for a twist of educational fate, the Royal couple may never have met at all. The pair both studied at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, and both ended up living in St. Salvatore’s Hall during their first year.
If they had never been dorm neighbors, it’s quite possible that the young Kate would have never crossed paths with Prince William. And then what? We would’ve never had the gift of seeing that beautiful $400,000 wedding gown – not to mention Prince Louis, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Isn’t life just the strangest thing?
