Kate Middleton and William’s savage breakup when he ‘thought he could do better’
November 11, 2020
Prince William briefly broke up with Kate because "thought he could do better", a biographer has claimed.
Parents of three, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William tied the knot more than nine years ago but the fairytale marriage nearly never happened.
The pair called it quits after six years together as William wanted to explore his options, according to writer Andrew Morton.
Mr Morton said: "In April, much to Kate's distress, William ended their relationship.
"It was a storm that had been brewing for a long time, resulting from his reluctance to commit and the feeling that his friends noted he could do better."

A friend of the couple told the royal author Prince William made a U-turn on his decision having become increasingly jealous in watching Kate move on from their relationship.
The friend said: "He thought he could do better, but realised very quickly what he had given up.
"William has seen pictures of Kate coming out of Boujis or elsewhere carefree in the world.
“Frankly, he didn't like the idea of another guy enjoying a hay roll with his girl."

The source told Mr Morton that the breakup ultimately allowed Prince William to secure the relationship his parents never had.
They added: "After the breakup, he achieved what he really wanted in life. A child from a broken house finds love, affection and warmth and a stable family."
Within six months of their separation, Prince William and Kate reconciled and steadily worked towards marriage.
Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall was reported to have offered some advice to the future royal in order to help her adapt to the demands of royal life and her future duties.

Biographer Robert Lacey claimed Camilla suggested the future Queen begin to adapt her schedule to Prince William's engagements.
Mr Lacey said: "She shared with her the secret to holding on a busy prince.
"In essence, Kate should have changed her schedule, and practically her entire life, to follow her husband's plans."
However, taking on the suggestion proved difficult in the first few years of Kate and William's public relationship due to the prince enrolling into Sandhurst for military training shortly after his graduation from St Andrew's University.
But since becoming the Duchess of Cambridge in 2011, Kate has been a prominent figure beside Prince William in Royal Family outings.
During the lockdown, Kate moved most of her activities online and joined forces with other members of the Royal Family to help boost the morale of the UK and the Commonwealth.
