Before Kate Middleton and Prince William became an item, the former actually helped out the royal while at parties!
When the two were at college, a slew of women would often talk to the prince, which made him feel "uncomfortable."
Laura Warshauer, who is friends with William and Kate, spoke to royal expert Katie Nicholl about what went down back in the day. “Will was getting really hit on by this girl at a party and it was getting quite uncomfortable because he couldn’t shake her off. He was being really polite, but this girl just didn’t get the hint. All of a sudden, Kate came up behind him and put her arms around him. He said, ‘Oh, sorry, but I’ve got a girlfriend,’ and he and Kate went off giggling," the excerpt read.
William, 39, apparently mouthed to Kate, "Thanks so much."
“She was the only girl in the room who could have done that. And that was just a month after we started university," Warshauer noted.
"Well, I was torn between asking Kate's dad first and then the realization that he might actually say 'no' dawned upon me," the dad-of-three said at the time. "So I thought if I ask Kate first then he can't really say no. So I did it that way round."
Since then, the pair's relationship is solid, and last year, they celebrated their 10th anniversary by uploading a video of their family to social media.
"Thank you to everyone for the kind messages on our wedding anniversary," they captioned the Instagram post. "We are enormously grateful for the 10 years of support we have received in our lives as a family. W&C. 📹 @willwarr."
