According to ‘Game of Crowns: Elizabeth, Camilla, Kate, and the Throne’, Camilla once wasn’t a fan of Kate.
Kate has really adjusted to her royal life well. It seems that she is getting on well the other members of the family. However, Middleton and Camilla’s relationship didn’t start out so well.
In the book, author Christopher Andersen claims the two had a very rocky relationship from the start.
According to the book, Kate was ”pretty, but rather dim” and “too lowly” to marry into the Royal Family.
Christopher claims Camilla and even asked Prince Charles to convince William to end things.
William and Kate were together for six years. Then in 20017, they broke up briefly. And the book claims Camilla at the time described the separation as “wise”.
During an interview, following the announcement of their engagement, Prince William explained: “We did split up for a bit.
“We were both very young, we were both at university, we were both finding ourselves as such, being different characters.
“We were both trying to find our own way with a bit of space, we were growing up and then it worked out for the better.”
Kate also shared her view on the split: “I think I at the time wasn’t very happy about it, but actually it made me a stronger person.
“You find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn’t realised, or I think you can get quite consumed by a relationship when you are younger.
“And I really valued that time for me as well although I didn’t think it at the time, looking back on it.”
In order to process what happened, Kate decided to go abroad.
Kate, now 36, was seen in Ireland weeks after calling it quits with William, 36, and that was before the media was aware of the breakup happening.
According to the Irish Times, from a statement from then, Kate flew to the Emerald Isle with her mum Carole and a group of friends.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were back together by October of the same year.
In April 2011, they got married and now they have three beautiful angels: George, Charlotte and baby Prince Louis.
Clarence House still hasn’t commented on the book’s claims.
