It seems almost impossible to imagine a time when Prince William and Kate Middleton were not together. They are a couple that is definitely loved by fans and seems to have a relationship that cannot be broken. When the two started dating back in their college days, it was obvious that they were struck with each other. However, like most young couples, their relationship hit a few bumps along the way.
As all royal fans are well aware, a few years before officially becoming Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Will and Kate actually split up a bit. In the end, things worked out best and they were able to continue their story in real life. Yet, during their separation, the injured Kate did not hesitate to tell William exactly how he felt about the way he was acting, creating a scene for a major change in their relationship.
What led to Prince William and Kate Middleton
By 2007, Prince William and Kate had been together for about four years. Although many people may have assumed that they were fully engaged by this time, this is not mandatory. During the 2006-2007 holiday season, Parade reports that Kate's family invited Will to stay with them in their escape area and he accepted the invitation. When the prince changed his decision at the last moment, Kate could not hide her disappointment. Then the couple began spending more and more time away from each other and they started to break up and after a few months they officially split.
What did they do in separate time?
William was the one who ended things with Kate, and she was absolutely broken. According to Harper's Bazaar, he called Kate and explained to him that he felt that the excessive and overwhelming media attention he was dealing with being his girlfriend was not fair. Kate admitted during the engagement interview with the couple that she was not happy, but looking back on that time, she realized that it made her stronger.
The future Duchess spent time with her mother Carol in Ireland while William was required to perform his military duties. Although William and Kate were missing each other during this time, they needed time and space to grow and learn before coming back together.
William did not stay home during separation
While it may be easy to imagine Prince William sitting at home feeling overwhelmed while he and Kate were broken up, this is not what he did . The Express reports that the young prince spent his time partying at nightclubs around London with quite a few different girls next to him. While Kate knew, even while they were together, that her high-ranking boyfriend would always have women who paid him much attention, she was still negatively affected by William's actions and did not hesitate to inform him.
How does the relationship between William and Kate change overnight?
Instead of ignoring William's behavior, Kate decided to tell him exactly how he felt. She let Will know that he was "uplifting" her image by publicizing it and would not tolerate being treated that way.
Fortunately, Kate's words really came to William and he was able to see things from her perspective. Eventually, the couple realized that they did not want to separate, and resumed their relationship, apparently stronger than before. It seems that William has managed to understand how special Kate is and has not looked back since.
