Did You Know? Kate Middleton Changed University To Be Close To Prince William
Wed 04-09-2013

Here is something you probably didn't know...the Duchess of Cambridge switched university and took a gap year to ensure she attended at the same time as Prince William.

Kate Middleton had a place at Edinburgh University in 2000 but gave it up and took a gap year in Italy, reapplying to St Andrews for 2001 after Prince William’s place became public.

According to her house mistress, Ann Patching, the change of heart came as a surprise. She said:
"After she left school, Catherine made some different decisions, but why she made those decisions I don’t know."

In 2007 William and Kate split amid rumors she disapproved of his party lifestyle and his reluctance to propose.

At Christmas 2009 Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, reportedly took William aside to discuss a possible engagement.

A friend said: "She put some pressure on William to let the family know where it was all leading."

William reassured her the relationship was very much on track and that there would be an engagement soon.
