Prince William & Kate Middleton Bio
Prince William (The Duke of Cambridge)
Prince William Arthur Phillip Louis was born to Prince Charles and Princess Diana (the Prince and Princess of Wales) on June 21st, 1982, and has one brother, Harry. Princess Diana wanted to make sure her sons saw what life was like outside being a royal and made sure that they saw everything from homeless shelters to Disneyland so that they could understand the world, his mother tragically passed away in a car accident in 1997. After attending a posh private school, he went on to study geography at The University of St. Andrews and like many of his ancestors entered the British military, and eventually the Royal Air Force where he trained to be a helicopter pilot for search and rescue missions - and on top of that he had some royal duties as well as, being appointed the Counsellor of State at the age of 21!
Kate Middleton (The Duchess of Cambridge)
Catherine Elizabeth Middleton was born January 9th, 1982, the eldest of three children. Her mother Carole worked as a flight attendant and her father as a flight dispatcher - you might say this family has no trouble flying high! Later they started a company that sold party supplies that Kate worked for. Her younger siblings are Phillipa (Pippa) and James. Kate is an undeniable style icon, in fact she's been on Vanity Fair's "Best Dressed List" three years running (2010, 2011 and 2012!) She attended The University of St. Andrews where she studied Art History and later worked at Jigsaw as an accessory buyer - so fashion truly is her passion.
Royal Romance to Princely Parents
William and Kate first met while they were at St. Andrews, but tried to keep their budding relationship on the DL so that the nosy paparrazzi wouldn't ruin romance, but despite denying rumors, when Kate got her own set of royal security guards it was clear the two were dating. Starting in 2002, their courtship lasted until 2010 before it was announced they were getting married (and not everything was smooth, they did have a brief split but rekindled the romance.) Their wedding was one of the most lavish and most well watched events ever!
In December 2012 it was announced that Will and Kate were pregnant with their first child. On July 22nd, 2013 Kate gave birth to a baby boy, George Alexander Louis. The baby will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge! Congratulations!
