Prince William and Kate Middleton welcomed their third child on April 23, 2018, six days before their seventh wedding anniversary. But as they left the hospital together with their newborn son, the couple did something out of character. And their unprecedented behavior came as a big surprise.
Prince William, 36, first met his future wife, Catherine, 36, in 2001 while studying at the University of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland. But although they were both living in St. Salvator’s Hall of residence, they didn’t actually begin dating until 2003. From the beginning, too, they downplayed their romance and would not show affection in public.
Their relationship has not been without its bumps in the road, either. After all, the couple briefly separated and got back together before William’s graduation in 2005. Then they famously broke up again in 2007 amid speculation that the prince was about to propose. However, a few months later they reunited, and William and Kate finally got engaged in October 2010 during a trip to Kenya.
