William treated Kate 'like a servant rather than a girlfriend' at the start, claims biographer

Having known each other for almost two decades now, Kate Middleton and Prince William look to be a good team.

They work alongside one another and have three kids together but still seem to always have the craic and enjoy each other's company.

That might not have always been the case though, if one biography is anything to go by.

Writer Andrew Morton has claimed that William took Kate for granted when they first started seeing one another.

The couple met at St Andrew's University in Scotland in 2001 and began seeing one another shortly after.

In his 2011 book, Morton wrote that young William was "obstinate and strong-willed".

"William could be an overwhelming presence at times, Kate felt taken for granted - treated like a servant rather than a girlfriend," he said.

Morton spoke to their university colleague Michael Chong, who told him;

"He could be flip and curt with her.

"She didn't like it when he ignored her and got into conversation with someone as though she wasn't there.

"He expected Kate to run after him and the longer they knew each other, the more he seemed to keep her on a tight leash."

Yikes.

Morton wore that "there were often spats, rows and break-ups" between the William and Kate at this time, which to be fair is true of pretty much any college romance.

The couple were on and off several times in their first years together before settling down in their mid-20s.
