At the same time, young people denied rumors about their relationship, although they were increasingly seen together. Only in 2004, they admitted that they meet. In 2006, Kate at the Christmas dinner was invited by Queen Elizabeth herself. The whole world was waiting for the announcement of the wedding, but the couple announced a break. Newspapers vied with each other to print pictures in which William embraced with others, but after two months Catherine and the Prince again appeared in public together.
In 2010, while on holiday in Kenya, a young man made an offer to his lover. At such a solemn moment, the prince presented the bride with the ring of his mother, Lady Diana. Kate took it and wears it on the same finger as the wedding ring worn during the wedding.
