The Duchess of Cambridge quickly became one of the most sought after girls, despite the rapid start of life at Marlborough College in Wiltshire. School friend Jemma Williamson said that “every boy in school loved her through” at a boarding school worth £ 12,605. However, before that, Kate experienced great difficulties during her school life and entered a prestigious educational institution only in the middle of the school year in 1996 after she was "intimidated" at Down House, a boarding school for girls in Berkshire.
Miss Williamson also said that Kate did not have much confidence when she first arrived.
She added: “Apparently, they scoffed at her very badly, and she, of course, looked thin and pale. She had very little confidence.
Kate's teacher, Joan Gall, said: “When she arrived, she was very quiet. It was difficult to go to a school as large as Marlboro, but it quickly became comfortable.
Along with beauty and mental abilities, the 36-year-old football player also excelled in field hockey and cross-country running, before attending St. Andrews University.
It was there, in Fife, Scotland, that she attracted the attention of her future husband, Prince William, and the couple began dating in 2003.
It is well known that Kate captured the heart of the Duke of Cambridge during an extravagant student fashion catwalk.
Where the astonished young prince was in the audience and did not know where to look when Kate came out in a very frank net, transparent dress.
The Duchess finished in 2005 with 2.1 in the history of art, and William from 2: 1 in geography.
The happy couple enjoyed Christmas with the rest of the royal family at Sandringham, despite reports of discord with Megan and Harry.
They say that the queen ordered a demonstration of unity between the magnificent four for the festive season.
A source told The Sun: “The Queen and Charles allowed the situation to evolve without obvious intervention – but they both made it clear that Christmas is what the whole family really came together.
“This meant that the two couples went to church together, like Fab Four, like last year. Yes, it was embarrassing and uncomfortable, considering what happened in the last 12 months.
"But it was not worth thinking about the alternative of even more negative at Christmas."
