Kate Middleton suffered an embarrassing moment when she first met Prince William
KATE MIDDLETON seems to be one of the most poised members of the Royal Family, with it hard to imagine she could ever embarrass herself. However, she revealed she did one embarrassing thing when she first met Prince William, causing her to go “bright red”
Kate Middleton, 36, has been married to Prince William for seven years, and in a relationship with him since 2003.
She has slotted perfectly into the Royal Family, always impeccably behaved and poised at functions and events.
But on her first meeting with her future husband, Kate was less than poised, admitting she went “bright red” and “scuttled off”.
According to a royal biographer, this was because Kate did something rather embarrassing.
Kate Middleton: Duchess did this embarrassing thing when she first met Prince William
In his book “William and Kate: A Royal Love Story”, royal biographer Christopher Anderson revealed the details of how the pair met.
The Duke and Duchess met at St Andrews University, reportedly during a party in university halls.
It is said by the biographer that Kate actually curtsied when she met her future husband.
William allegedly then spilled a drink all over himself, causing Kate to end their encounter by “scuttling off”.
Kate regaled the story in her and William’s 2010 engagement interview, revealing: “I actually went bright red when I met you and scuttled off feeling very shy about meeting you.”
She continued: “William wasn’t there for quite a bit of the time initially, he wasn’t there from Fresher’s Week, so it did take a bit of time for us to get to know each other, but we did become very close friends from quite early on.”
Laughing at Kate’s story, William told the interviewer that he actually didn’t remember how they met and that he had to “wrack his brain” to think about it.
Embarrassing moment aside, the couple soon started dating and were together for four years before deciding to part ways in 2006/2007.
Sharing details of the spilt in a 2010 interview with ABC, William reasoned that the couple were “both very young”.
“It was at university, we were sort of both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff, it was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up, and so it was just sort of a bit of space and a bit of things like that and it worked out for the better.”
Kate also addressed the break up in their official engagement interview, saying: “I think I at the time wasn’t very happy about it, but actually it made me a stronger person.
