Cambridge alumni dating
Shortly before their wedding, Queen Elizabeth conferred Kate with the title of Catherine, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge.
After the palace officially announced her pregnancy in December 2012, Middleton gave birth to Prince George, the third in line to the throne, on July 22, 2013, amid an international media frenzy.
At first, Middleton's life didn't change much.
The couple kept their relationship a secret, mostly due to the prince's extreme distrust of the press.
Middleton's boyfriend graduated at the end of the 2002 school term, and the couple soon parted ways over issues of distance.
Newly single and entering her sophomore year, Middleton and several friends were invited to share a flat with Prince William, a setting that allowed their budding romance to blossom.
As the girlfriend of the prince, finding a job was also difficult; the position had to be considered respectable by the royal family, while also allowing Middleton the flexibility to take off at a moments' notice to be with the prince.
On April 29, 2011, she married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in London.
Kate attended exclusive boarding schools, including St.
Andrew's Prep School, Downe House, and Marlborough College.
Middleton was dating senior Rupert Finch, and William was busy dealing with the press and struggling with his feelings about his new school.
But in 2002, Middleton appeared in an exclusive fashion-show fundraiser wearing a revealing dress.
