They both attended the University of St Andrews and began to see each other in 2001 - unofficially. The broke up in 2007 with various reasons for the split being bandied around - He did not spend enough time with her, The Press was harassing her, He did not want to settle down yet and more. So much speculation surrounding them but the truth will only be known by their closest friends. They were still seen together at different times after the 'break-up'
They formally announced their engagement in 2010 and then the country was taken up in a whirlwind of activity and anticipation as we eagerly awaited another royal wedding.
On 29th April 2011, with everyone having the day off, about 26 million people in the UK watched live as William and Kate took their vows. She looked stunning and has since been referred to as a princess of style.
Surely, this is the stuff Dreams are made of! I do hope they live a long happy life together.
