Prince William had 'frank' talk with Queen over 'second thoughts' about Kate Middleton

3 mins read

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married at Westminster Abbey in 2011, after meeting at St Andrews University in Scotland. The pair dated for several years before confirming their place in the line of succession.

But their relationship wasn’t without its issues, with William calling for a break in 2007.

Royal expert and author Katie Nicholl claims William confided in Her Majesty and father, Prince Charles.

She said the future King has “frank discussions” over the couple’s future with the Monarch and Charles advising him “not to hurry into anything”.

The couple didn’t separate for long, getting back together a few months later.

Speaking on the split previously, the Duke of Cambridge said: “We were both very young… we were both finding ourselves and being dif­ferent characters.

“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.”

Giving her own take, Kate said she “wasn’t very happy” but it made her a “stronger person”.

The Duchess added: “You find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn’t realised.

“I think you can get quite consumed by a relationship when you’re younger.

“I really valued that time for me as well, although I didn’t think it at the time.”

The Duke’s cold feet didn’t last long as the couple were engaged a few years later after William proposed in Kenya.

Since their fairytale wedding, the couple have gone on to have three children, George, nine, Charlotte, seven and Louis, four.

In recent months, the couple have stepped up as senior royals as the Queen takes a step back from Royal duties.

The 96-year-old has been suffering from mobility problems, only being seen in public on a handful of occasions.

Her Majesty was forced to pull out of a number of significant events during her Platinum Jubilee celebrations earlier this year.

The monarch will appoint the new prime minister in Balmoral for the first time in her reign in what has been described as a “huge break with tradition”.

She will receive either Liz Truss or Rishi Sunak as Boris Johnson’s successor on Tuesday.
