Kate Middleton is dull in real life, but seems to be apt in stealing the show anyway, according to a royal correspondent.

In Amazon Prime's documentary "William & Kate: The Journey," Ashley Pearson described the moment the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge first met. She branded Middleton as "dull" with a "pedestrian personality," but she apparently knew well how to catch Prince William's attention.

"She walked out in basically a bra and knickers and not much else," Pearson said (as quoted by Express). "She looked beautiful – young and fresh and natural. She really got William’s attention."

"For all that has been said about Kate’s somewhat dull maybe, somewhat pedestrian personality, the girl knows how to get attention when she wants it," she added. "And she did a really good job that day of getting the attention of probably the one man whose attention she really wanted."

In the latter part of the documentary, Pearson claimed that Middleton gave up "her entire life around being William's professional girlfriend." She believed that Middleton did it to show the royal family and Prince William that she "was ready and willing to do what was required of her."

Prince William and Middleton's relationship wasn't smooth sailing. In fact, there was a time when they parted ways for a while. Jessica Jayne claimed in her book, "The Duchess of Cambridge: How Kate Middleton Became A Future Queen," that the couple had a "trial separation" in 2004 that left Middleton miserable.

"She got quite drunk on white wine and really let her guard down. She was debating whether or not she should text or call him," one of Middleton's friends said. "She said how sad she was and how much she was missing William but she never mentioned it after that."

Some claimed that Prince William felt "claustrophobic" in their relationship. In their engagement interview, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge addressed their breakup. According to Prince William, at that time they were still figuring out what they want in their lives.

"We were both very young," Prince William said. "It was at university, we were sort of both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff, it was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up."
