Kate Middleton wanted to save herself for 'someone special', says friend

Kate Middleton met Prince William in college.

While both studying at St. Andrews University in Scotland in 2001, they first became close friends and then went onto dating.

In 2007, they briefly broke up but it was only for a couple of months before reuniting again.

In 2011 they tied the knot in a fairy tale ceremony at Westminster Abbey witnessed by nearly 72 million people worldwide.

They've been together for pretty much their entire adult lives, and from a recent interview, it seems like Kate wasn't much of a dater in school anyway.

Royal expert and biographer Katie Nicholl is writing a book about the Duchess, called Kate: The Future Queen and in it she interviews one of Kate's childhood friends.

Gemma Williamson told the author: "I got the distinct impression that Kate wanted to save herself for someone special. It was quite an old-fashioned approach, especially at Marlborough, where half of the pupils were already having sex."

However, she did reveal that she went out with a "popular and kind" boy named Wood, as well as a "floppy-haired" classmate named William Marx, but she didn't take them seriously.
