1. Maltreatment from Prince William

Kate and William have been together since 2003. They met in their university days, in 2001, and were friends for two years before they started dating.

While they have shown the world that time does not affect their love, royal biographer Andrew Morton reveals that William didn’t treat Kate properly when they first met.

According to his book, ‘William and Catherine,’ Andrew noted that Kate felt like a slave at the start of their relationship. He wrote:

“William could be an overwhelming presence at times, Kate felt taken for granted – treated like a servant rather than a girlfriend.”

Andrew explained that he spoke to one of William’s friends, Michael Chong, who revealed to him that William was curt with Kate and that she didn’t appreciate it when he ignored her and got into a conversation with someone else.

2. His friends didn’t accept her

Also in Andrew’s book, the author revealed that Kate was treated abominably by William’s close circle, as they didn’t think she was the right fit for a royal, not to mention a future queen.

Andrew wrote:

“While she was seen as a ’pretty and sensible’ girl, there were those in royal and aristocratic circles who believed that the Middletons were too middle-of-the-road for the House of Windsor.”

William’s friends expected him to find a woman in his aristocratic circle rather than settle for a commoner like Kate.

3. The Royal family wasn’t so accepting of her

We might see Kate fitting into her role as the Duchess of Cambridge effortlessly because she has a solid relationship with members of the Royal Family, but that wasn’t the case at the start.

It was reported by Express that the Queen allegedly warned Prince William that she wasn’t going to be a party to anymore divorces during her reign and advised him to think things through before popping the question to Kate.

Also, it was disclosed by Andrew Morton that Prince Charles was rude when news of Prince William’s engagement to Kate reached him.

It’s no news that the Cambridges’ 16-year love journey was not without hassles. They broke up twice, once during their university days, and once in 2007.

It was the latter split that took the world by storm as it was heavily publicized. During that time, it was reported that Prince William began partying just a week after his split from Kate, showing no remorse or respect for her whatsoever.
