Kate Middleton reportedly turned down Prince William’s invitation to the significant Royal Family event before his graduation from Sandhurst.
One of the most popular royal couples, Prince William and Kate Middleton spent Christmas with King Charles III in Sandringham with their kids.
Ten years after their initial encounter at St. Andrew’s University, Kate and William were married in April of 2011 and celebrated their first Christmas as a married couple together. The Princess of Wales, however, reportedly turned down an invitation to a royal holiday celebration in the past, according to a royal biographer.
The Palace Papers biography author Tina Brown once asserted that William had invited his then-girlfriend to a Christmas celebration at Sandringham in 2006.
She stated in the book that William had extended his girlfriend the coveted invitation to join him at the Queen’s yearly Christmas house party at Sandringham before to their graduation [from The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst].
Kate maintained her decision that she would not attend such an important Royal Family meeting without a ring on her finger, mirroring the self-assured spirit of her Philip Treacy hat, the author continued.
As Ms. Brown went on: “She said no. William said nothing in response to her choice.” The 24-year-old instead “retreated to Scotland to stay with her parents, who had hired a property in Perthshire for the holidays,” according to the article.
