The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge are set to mark their tenth wedding anniversary tomorrow. But the royal couple nearly saw their dreams of a happy ever after vanish before their eyes after the Duke broke up with his then-girlfriend in 2007.
At the time, an “anxious” William sought advice from the Queen and Prince Charles who urged him to give himself time to reach a decision.
Katie Nicholl, Royal expert and author, told the Mirror: “William had been having second thoughts and sat down with his father and his grandmother to have a frank discussion about his future with Kate.
“Both advised him not to hurry into anything.”
According to the news outlet, royal sources claimed that Her Majesty was disappointed William eventually decided to part ways with Kate.
Royal author Andrew Morton claimed the real reason behind the breakup was that the Duke “thought he could do better.”
According to online magazine Japan FM, 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.”
However, Kate’s optimistic attitude following the heartbreak is believed to have fuelled William’s desire to work things out with her.
A friend of the royal couple told the author Prince William had become increasingly jealous as Kate began to go out and enjoy her status as a single woman.
The insider 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 friend told Mr Morton the split ultimately allowed Prince William to secure the relationship his parents had failed to share.
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.”
