[Music] Breaking news: The truth behind Kate Middleton and Prince William’s breakup has been revealed. Like many long-term couples, their relationship has had its ups and downs.
Despite being happily married for over a decade, the Prince and Princess of Wales have experienced their fair share of rough patches. They first met while studying at the University of St and started as friends before eventually becoming more. However, in 2007, a few years before their engagement in 2010, they broke up briefly.
Kate later admitted that she wasn’t happy about the separation at the time, but it ultimately made her stronger. One of the main factors in their break was Prince William’s refusal to spend New Year’s Eve with Kate’s family in 2006. Balancing time between both sides of the family can be challenging, and this relatable issue caused the couple to re-evaluate their relationship and take some time apart. The Mirror previously reported that it was Prince William who initiated the breakup over the phone.
It took place in a car park in London, and Kate appeared upset during the conversation. Although she didn’t cry in front of her colleagues, word spread that there were problems between her and William. Now, 12 years and 3 children into their marriage, this disagreement seems like ancient history for the couple.
They have spent the past year adjusting to their roles as Prince and Princess of Wales following the death of Queen Elizabeth..
