A real treasure. Kate Middleton and Prince William will celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary this Thursday, April 29. Both had said “yes” at Westminster Abbey during a ceremony broadcast live on television. For the occasion, our source mentioned this Tuesday, April 27 a precious gift that Prince Harry had offered to his brother. It is an object that belonged to his mother, Lady Diana.
Following the disappearance of the princess, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex had respectively received a Cartier watch and a jewel adorned with a sapphire 18 carats enhanced by 14 small diamonds. The two brothers made a pact: the one who gets married first will have the honor of putting this ring on his wife’s finger. Prince Harry kept his word and following the engagement of his brother, he gave him the ring. A precious gift whose sentimental value is immense and which testifies well to the affection that they both carry, despite their current differences.
A first meeting that goes back. If the Cambridges said “I do” in 2011, it is at the University of Saint Andrews, where they were both attending school, that they met for the first time. A day that Prince William does not remember precisely. “I actually turned bright red when I met you and felt very shy about meeting you,” Kate Middleton had explained in an interview conducted some time after her engagement. “William was not there for a long time at first, he was not there during the Freshers Week, so it took us a while to get to know each other,” she added. A meeting that allowed the two lovebirds to quickly “become very close friends” before falling in love.
Prince William: The day he fell in love with Kate Middleton
Before being a couple, Kate Middleton and Prince William were first friends. A friend of the couple gave an interview to Hello Magazine on November 15 and he recalled the day the Duke of Cambridge fell in love with the Duchess. Aged only 20 years at the time, the young Kate Middleton participated in the “Don’t Walk Fashion Show”, a charity fashion show. To attend, Prince William paid £ 200 and positioned himself in the front row. “He sat in the front row and his eyes sparkled,” says this friend who says that day was a real revelation for the brother of Prince Harry.
