Kate let rip at William and friend on holiday before marriage: ‘Stop behaving like this!’

Kate let rip at William and friend on holiday before marriage: 'Stop behaving like this!'

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be this week reflecting on last weekend’s sombre Remembrance Sunday service. They gathered with other members of the Royal Family and prominent figures from the UK and the world to mark the event at Whitehall. The evening before this, William and Kate attended London’s Royal Albert Hall for the Festival of Remembrance, where a yearly musical tribute to Britain’s fallen soldiers is held.

Notably absent from this year’s service was the Queen.

Buckingham Palace released a statement before the remembrance event announcing that she would miss it due to a sprained back.

It added that the monarch, 95, was “disappointed” not to attend.

Kate took the Queen’s place on a balcony of the Foreign and Commonwealth office.

Many saw it as another example of the Duchess moving up the ranks of the Firm, preparing to one day become Queen consort.

Things haven’t always been so formal for Kate in the Royal Family, however.

Unearthed reports claim there was a time when Kate launched into a furious outburst at William while they were on holiday in 2006.

This was during the early days of their relationship, the pair having met at university in Scotland in 2001.

In 2008, Vicky Ward, an author and broadcaster who has covered the Royal Family, revisited the episode.

Writing for Vanity Fair, she said: “Interestingly, of the tight-knit royal clique who hit the clubs with increasing regularity, perhaps the most aware of the bad impression they were creating was Middleton.

“On vacation in 2006, Prince William and Guy Pelly, an old friend in the group, often referred to as the ‘court jester,’ were careening around on mopeds in front of a rented house in Ibiza.

“According to a source, Middleton came out of the house and, matron-like, told them to stop.

“She said, ‘Anyone could be watching! Go out the back and stop behaving like this!’

“Like chastened schoolboys, the two did what they were told.

“William may not have liked it, but Middleton’s judgment was almost certainly right.”

William and Kate went on to enjoy several trips abroad together.

The Duke, however, in 2017, travelled without her to Swiss Alps for a lads holiday — one that attracted particular attention after he found himself at the centre of a media storm.

By going abroad, he missed a Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey.

The criticism largely surrounded the fact that he was the only senior royal to have missed the event.

Things were made worse when he was filmed dancing at a nightclub.

In an interview with The Sunday Times in March of this year, a friend of William defended him, explaining that the holiday came at a time when he had been working long hours as an air ambulance pilot.

Of the criticism, William’s friend said: “That p****d him off.

“He was leaving home at 5.30am, getting home after dark and saving lives in between, but people were still being critical of his commitment to his [other] job.”

The episode has been mostly forgotten.

William went on to retire from the Air Ambulance service in the same year in order to become a full-time royal.
