However, being “friends” with the prince was at first a real test for Kate: she blushed, then turned pale, and even stuttered. In short, these were all signs of embarrassment, which, fortunately, have passed. Moreover, it was Catherine who persuaded Prince William not to leave the university, as he wanted. The press began to discuss their relationship in 2004 when the media published several photos of them together. However, their love was not perfect: they parted several times, then converged again.
