Are prince william and kate middleton still dating
Kate explained how she drew inspiration from William's mother, Princess Diana's life, and that her basic goal in joining the royal family was to hopefully "make a difference, even in the smallest way." Of course, Kate took to royal life in a way that exceeded expectations.
Part of that may have had to do with the "two-year grace period from public life" that they were granted from the queen after their wedding, so they could have a little breathing room and enjoy married life for a while.
Complete with a celebrity guest list, lavish trappings, and most of the family traditions upheld, the live-televised nuptials were a spectacle to behold.
And behold it the world did, to the tune of approximately two billion viewers.
Though they had met once before through mutual friends, it was Kate Middleton's catwalk during a charity fashion show in 2002 that had Prince William scrambling to win a date with his future wife.
Given the emphasis Princess Diana placed on her sons' education — William and Harry were the first Royals to "attend public (if still posh) schools" — it's no surprise that both men ended up with well-educated ladies.
