KATE Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, reportedly went on a “mischievous streak” in her boarding school days, which included flashing “her bottom at the boys out of the window”, a bombshell documentary reveals.
The Duchess joined the prestigious Marlborough College midway through the academic year in 1996 after being “bullied” by other girls at Downe House – an all-girls boarding school in Berkshire. According to 2011 documentary “Kate Middleton: Biography”, Prince William’s wife had very little confidence when she first arrived at Marlborough and looked “kind of gangly, tall, and awkward”. However, after her GCSEs, Kate took a trip to Argentina with the hockey team and then went on a family holiday to the Caribbean.
During that summer, she started doing her hair and using make up before making everyone say “wow” when they saw her upon her return.
As the Duchess of Cambridge’s confidence grew, narrator Tony DiFalco revealed that Kate allowed herself to indulge in some “juvenile” behaviour.
Royal author Christopher Andersen claimed “she had a mischievous streak”, which according to another royal commentator included “flashing her bottom at the boys out of the window”.
Mr Andersen added: “She was so famous for this at the school she became known as Kate Middlebum.”
Despite being at the top of the “Fit List”, which boys would sometimes pin on the walls, it doesn’t appear Kate was in as many relationships as some of her contemporaries while at Marlborough.
According to one friend, she was consciously “saving herself” for someone special while at college.
The Duchess left the prestigious boarding school in July 2000 to attend St Andrews University where she met her future husband.
Prince William, by contrast, attended Eton College in Berkshire, where he was later joined by his younger brother Prince Harry.
According to recent reports, Prince George might not follow in his father’s footsteps by attending the elite Eton College.
Last month, sources close to the royal couple told the Daily Mail they are considering Marlborough college for their son in order to give him a “less traditional” education.
They said: “Eton hasn’t been ruled out but they have talked at length about Marlborough as an option and the smart money is on George going there instead.
“They are very keen to allow George to spread his wings as a child and won’t ever do what people expect them to do when it comes to their children.”
