Kate Middleton and Prince William’s relationship is one that most wish to attain and emulate, ultimately culminating into the fairytale wedding of 2011. With three kids and a fourth rumored to be in the plan, the happily married couple has been the role model of good relationships, withstanding the onslaught of bad rumors that went their way.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made their relationship well known in the years they have been married, resulting in several documentaries and biographies created about their love story. It has been common knowledge that William and Kate first met when they attended the University of St. Andrews. However, new information has revealed that this may not actually be the case.

Royal biographer and author Katie Nicholl wrote in her 2010 book “William And Harry” that the initial meeting of the couple happened in 2001, when they shared the university halls of the residence of St. Andrews. Three years later, Nicholl revealed to American talk show host Katie Couric that she was “fascinated” to discover that the information we thought fact was actually incorrect.

“I was speaking to some of her friends at Marlborough school, which was where she went before St Andrews,” said the biographer. “They said, nuh-uh, she didn’t meet him at St Andrews. She met him before she got there.”

The biographer continued by explaining that some of Kate’s friends introduced her to Prince William and Harry when she was in school in her sixth form. “So there was an early meeting,” Nicholl said. “That, for me, that changed everything,” she said knowingly.

This possibly innocent meeting from such a tender age has some fans theorizing that Kate and William’s relationship was in fact no mere coincidence. The rumors continue, saying that Kate chose to enter St. Andrews because her parents pushed her to follow William in the hopes that they would bump paths. Other stories also tell of Kate’s “secret” wall of William’s posters and about how Kate would say that there’s no one like him in the world.

The notion is preposterous as Prince William’s enrolment into that particular university was not made known to the public until the last minute. About the poster, Kate did admit to having posters on her walls, but of models and not William.
