Kate and William broke up way back in 2007 and we finally know why

A common relationship bugbear.

Relationships can take work and there are times when you feel like your partner isn't seeing your point of view and vice versa.

According to reports, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge encountered this very issue way back in 2007.

There's a  number of rumours about why their 2007 breakup actually happened but apparently, the truth has now been revealed and it is extremely relatable.

It all started when the Middleton family invited William to stay with them for New Year celebrations just after Christmas 2006.

William originally said yes but later decided to spend the holiday at the Queen's estate in Sandringham, a longstanding tradition for the royal family.

However, Kate couldn't stay with him as she wasn't yet a member of the royal family and so this led to tension between the couple.

This meant they didn't see each other for much of the holiday period and unfortunately, this continued into the following year.

According to an excerpt from Kate: A Biography by Marcia Moody, which you can check out on Parade here, William left London to join a new army regiment in Dorset the day before Kate's birthday, January 9.

The distance between them made it more difficult for them to spend time together and so following on from a difficult Christmas, cracks began to show.

They broke up in April 2007 but were reunited in June of that year and as the saying goes, the rest is history.
