'Tearful' Kate Middleton worried Will was going to end their relationship years ago
Once upon a time, Kate Middleton was told by Prince William that he didn't want to spend Christmas with her, which just goes to show that even impending royalty face instant betrayal by men.
They're just like us.
Don't worry though. Will didn't tell Kate he didn't want to spend this Christmas with her - that would be stupid, they're married and therefore have to spend every event stuck to one another or else people are going to assume that their relationship is in turmoil.
Rather, he told her he didn't want to spend the holidays with her back in 2006 - before they were married, but when they were seriously dating.
Harsh enough scenario.
According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, William phoned a "tearful" Kate back in '06 to let her known last minute that he was cancelling his plans and staying with the fam for the festive season instead.
In her book, The Making of a Royal Romance, she wrote that Will had promised Kate he'd come visit her around New Year, but on Stephen's Day he changed his mind.
“At the last minute William had a change of heart and decided to stay with his own family instead," she wrote. He then “... informed a tearful Kate during a late-night conversation on Boxing Day."
Apparently William didn't think the whole debacle was a big deal, but Kate worried that his cancelation was “a sign of something more sinister to come."
Or, she didn't care at all. Who can say for sure?
This year, Kate and Will will be spending Christmas together, along with Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, the Queen, and loads of other people.
Sounds more sinister than being cancelled on, tbh.
