1. Difficult relationship with Prince William

Kate Middleton and Prince William have been together since 2003. They met in 2001 while studying at the university and were friends for some time before they began dating.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton said that William didn’t do well with Kate at the beginning. He didn't treat her properly.

According to his book, ‘William and Catherine,’ Kate felt not comfortable at the beginning of their relationships. He wrote:

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

Andrew added that he spoke to one of William’s friends, Michael Chong, who noticed that William was curt with Kate.

2. His friends didn't like her

In the same book, the author revealed that William’s close circle didn't accept her. William's friends didn't believe that she was a good choice for him.

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.”
