7 Rules for Royal Romance


If you don't share the same interests, then try and learn something new. Kate has reportedly learned to shoot. "I think he's been teaching her how to shoot or having the royal estate workers and so on help her shoot. So there's a — maybe she's throwing herself into that a little bit more, that sort of world," said Perry. Kate and William are both avid skiers, they have been spotted numerous times together at the "Klosters for skiing, which is a very up-market Alpine resort in Switzerland," said Perry.

5. Be Yourself: After College, and in London, Kate Middleton and Prince William were constantly in the limelight. They would jet off to exotic vacations, and head out dancing to the trendy clubs, all the while being photographed and in the public eye. Every outfit, every move was watched and scrutinized. Kate Middleton's own sense of style seemed to blossom after College. "The media really started paying attention to what Kate Middleton was wearing as her style developed and as she became less of a clone of her sort of social background because she used to dress very much like all her friends dressed, all these sort of Chelsea — Kensington-Chelsea girls," noted King. "But slowly as her own image grew and grew, she started making a few statements of her own, especially this Issa, this Brazilian dress brand that she tends to wear. She was really one of the first people to really start wearing this dress label so often, and it really made her stand out," said King.

6. Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder: In a Royal Romance, you can count on the press following your every move—through the good times and the bad--the vacations, and the breakups. Instead of going home and crying Kate went out to popular nightclubs, and other events and appeared confident and cool even just days after the break up. "She got dressed up, she looked phenomenal, she went to all of his favorite clubs. The message was very clear to William: look at what you're missing," said Nicholl.

"At the time I 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 realized. I think you can get quite consumed in a relationship when you are younger and I really valued that time for me, although I didn't think it at the time," Kate Middleton recalled in an interview with ITN after her engagement.

7. Find The Setting for Love: It's much easier to fall in love if you have the perfect backdrop, like St. Andrews University - where Kate and Prince William first met. The sleepy, picturesque seaside town in Scotland is also the birth place of golf. St. Andrews has small student population.

"St. Andrews was so small, so close, so intimate—and so intense—that it, it did lend itself to those sorts of relationships," said Katie Nicholl. It's also known as the matchmaking university. St. Andrews didn't have much nightlife, so students would throw dinner parties for groups of friends.
