They are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary this year. Kate Middleton and Prince William, who said ‘yes’ to each other in 2011, seem in love as they did on day one, when they both attended the benches of St Andrews University in Scotland, in 2001. “When we did. were sitting at lunch in the dining hall and they were both talking, it was amazing how natural it was, that they had so much to say to each other … “, recalls Laura Warshauer, a former comrade of the couple, in the columns of the Daily Mail. The former student of St Andrews, good friend of Kate and William, evokes “a real alchemy” between the two lovebirds, already at the time. “Come to think of it, there were all these little moments – definitely moments where I was like ‘Wow, that could really be something,'” says the woman, now a singer and songwriter. It is therefore a safe bet that Kate Middleton and Prince William will not be unhappy to find, during their trip to Scotland, this place full of memories, which in particular saw the birth of their love story. The royal couple will visit the site to chat with the current students, including how they have managed to manage their lives and support each other during this difficult year.
Prince William, in the footsteps of his grandfather
This tour of Scotland allows William to honor his role as Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, a status previously held by his grandfather, Prince Philip, until the latter passed the torch to him in 2013, after 64 years of wearing this cap. On the sidelines of their visit to St Andrews University, Kate and William will meet several associations working for the climate, mental health, addiction, or the situation of homeless people.
