Kate Middleton’s first kiss was not Prince William.

The Duchess of Cambridge had a few relationships before Prince William. However, Middleton reportedly wanted to save herself for someone special. The duchess’ first kiss was with the older brother of Alice St. John Webster, one of her closest friends from Marlborough College.

Unfortunately, Middleton was left heartbroken when their relationship fell apart. This didn’t end her friendship with Webster though, as she was invited to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s royal wedding in 2011. In fact, Webster was given a prime seat at the event.

After her first heartbreak, Middleton dated Harry Blakelock, captain of the Marlborough College rugby team. He was also a hockey player, and Middleton played the same sport. However, despite their similar interest in sports, their romance didn’t last long because Blakelock left school for a gap year.

A friend revealed that Middleton was saving herself for someone special. One of her friends, Jessica Hay, shared that Middleton was attracted to Prince William.

“We would sit around talking about all the boys at school we fancied but Catherine would always say ‘I don’t like any of them,’” Hay told Daily Mail. “Then she would joke: ’There’s no one quite like William. I bet he’s really kind,’”

Prince William and Middleton met at St. Andrew’s University. They were friends before they started dating. There were rumors that Middleton had a poster of the Duke of Cambridge in her room. However, Middleton just laughed and denied she had one when asked about it during her engagement interview with Prince William.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s relationship wasn’t perfect. They dated for eight years before Prince William proposed. They also endured several breakups before they finally decided to take their relationship to the next level.

Royal biographer Katie Nicholl claimed in the documentary, “When Kate Met William: A Tale Of Two Lives,” that the couple had a make or break holiday vacation following their split in 2007. They decided to take it as an opportunity if they would continue their relationship or live separate lives for good.

In the end, they chose to be together. According to Prince William, they split because they were too young at that time. He added that they were still figuring out what they wanted in their lives.
