Why Kate Middleton and Prince William Broke Up Before They Got Married
It's difficult to imagine a time beforeKate Middleton and Prince Williamwere the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. But prior to getting married and starting a family, the two took a break from their relationship.
Obviously, they ultimately realized they couldn't be apart. But what happened during their separation? Here's everything we know about the brief 2007 breakup that precluded their marriage in 2011.
They split in the spring of 2007.
In his bookWilliam and Kate: A Royal Love Story, Christopher Andersen revealed that Prince William ultimately broke up with Kate Middleton over the phone, while she was at work. In an excerpt published byToday, Andersen writes that having been with Kate throughout college, William was having doubts about their relationship. Allegedly, Kate excused herself from work to hear William's reasons for wanting to break up, which were, "I can't... It just isn't going to work. It isn't fair to you."
Engagement speculation was at its height when the future Duke and Duchess split.
Prior to their split,The Spectatoranointed Kate Middleton "the Next People's Princess," bestowing upon her the honor first given to William's mother, Princess Diana, according toThe Guardian.E! Newsalso reports it was "intense media pressure of being in the spotlight" that led to the couple's split, especially as the world assumed that a proposal was imminent.
Kate wasn't happy about the breakup.
In their joint TV interview following the news of their engagement, Kate revealed that she hadn't wanted to breakup with William saying (via ):
"At the time I wasn't very happy about it, but it actually made me a stronger person. You find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn't realized. I think you can get quite consumed by a relationship when you are younger, and I really valued that time for me as well although I didn't think it at the time."
But William needed some space.
In their engagement interview, Prince William revealed that he needed to take time out from the relationship before he could fully commit. He told , "It was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up so it was just a bit of space, and it worked out for the better."
Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth supported the split.
Prince William got cold feet about his relationship with Kate in December 2006, royal expert and biographer Katie Nicholl wrote inVanity Fair. He'd been due to spend New Year's Eve with the Middletons, but pulled out at the last minute. "William had been having second thoughts and sat down with his father and his grandmother to have a frank discussion about his future with Kate," Nicholl said. "Both advised him not to hurry into anything."
Andersen wrote in his book that the Queen was actually disappointed over the end of William and Kate's relationship. "Prince William and Miss Middleton had been together such a long time," a former Palace equerry told Andersen. "But it was not the Queen's decision to make... She did not want him rushing into a commitment if he wasn't absolutely certain this was the one."
Kate left the country after the split.
According to multiple outlets, Kate traveled to Ireland just days after her breakup from Prince William.
