With eager photographers at the ready, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge stepped out of a London hospital on April 23, 2018, to show off their newborn son Louis for the very first time. Then, around two weeks later, Kensington Palace released the first official pictures of the royal family’s youngest prince. And the images were taken by a very special photographer.
Falling in love with a prince is the basis for countless stories and fairytales, but, for Kate Middleton, it actually happened. She met Prince William when they each began their studies at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland in September 2001.
However, the romantic spark between them didn’t ignite until a year later, and the couple were able to keep their love under wraps until 2004. That year, the media caught Prince William and Middleton on a ski trip together, and, with that, word was out that he had a girlfriend.
