Kate Middleton was left crying over the Christmas period early on in her relationship with Prince William, it has emerged.
Long before becoming the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate’s relationship with Prince William hit quite the rocky patch in 2006 after he cancelled plans with her over the holidays.
The Duke of Cambridge had organised to be with the Royal family on Christmas in Sandringham and then head over to Kate to be with her on New Years Eve.
In the book The Making of a Royal Romance, it is revealed however that Kate was left upset and concerned about her future with Prince William after he turned his back on their holiday plans together.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl claims in the book that Prince William quickly discarded plans with Kate in a phone call on Boxing Day.
"William had been having second thoughts and sat down with his father and his grandmother to have a frank discussion about his future with Kate,” she said.
“Both advised him not to hurry into anything.”
The next year, Kate and Prince William broke up, to the Queen's disappointment according to sources at the time.
Kate – then in her mid-twenties – dealt with the split how many young women do, enjoying nights out with friends, but it wasn’t before long that the pair rekindled their relationship.
This was confirmed as the couple were spotted kissing at an army party in Bovington, Dorset.
Soon after, Kate moved into Prince William’s Clarence House flat once he returned from military duty.
Now, ten years into marriage later with three children, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge appear more relaxed and engaged with each other than ever.
Royal Christmas in Sandringham is back on again this year also the Queen has confirmed and she is “totally committed” to hosting her family after being separated from them for months by the pandemic.
This comes after Her Majesty spent a short stay in hospital and was ordered to pause on Royal engagements while she took some rest.
What with Christmas approaching though, the Queen is eager to get back to seeing those closest to her.
“This year, more than ever, it is incredibly important to Her Majesty to be surrounded by her loved ones,” a palace insider said.
“The Queen is totally committed to hosting everyone as she hopes to make it back to full health in the coming weeks."
