Kate Middleton, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge, married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in 2011.
Kate Middleton was born on January 9, 1982 in Reading, Berkshire, England. At birth, she was named Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. Her parents were a pilot, Michael and stewardess Carol Middleton. Kate has Philip’s younger sister and younger brother James.
Kate is from the working class – her ancestors were miners and builders. Her maternal grandmother, Dorothy Goldsmith, was the first member of the family who tried to improve the social and economic status of the family. Dorothy asked the children to mark high, and as a result, her mother becomes a stewardess – at that time quite a prestigious job. There, Carol met Michael Middleton, and soon they were married. By the time Kate was born, her mother was trying to reach even greater heights and in 1987 she set up a mail order company so that children could get a decent education in private schools. Surprisingly, the business went well, making the Middleton family a multimillionaire. Naturally, Kate and her brother and sister needed nothing – Kate studied in private schools for aristocrats, such as St. Andrew’s Prep School, Down House “and” Marlborough College. “But her studies in closed schools did not happen without incident, so at 13, Kate was forced to drop out of school for girls” Down House “because of intimidation and bullying

But communicating between classes and eating breakfast together in the dining room, they were not interested in each other as a partner. Middleton met with the undergraduate Rupert Finch, and William spoke more with the press, and also tried to understand how much he liked his new school.
But in 2002, Middleton took part in an exclusive charity show, in which she profiled in a candid dress. William was also present at the show, and after the show, Kate became interested and began to look at her differently. William tried to invite her to dinner that evening, but since Kate was in a relationship with Finch, she responded with a refusal to Prince William.

In 2003, Middleton and the prince began to meet, experiencing feelings for each other.
