Prince William & Kate Middleton: A Royal Split

Prince William & Kate Middleton: A Royal Split

Prince William and girlfriend Kate Middleton have called it quits after nearly five years together.

The couple had reached an “amicable agreement” to separate, UK’s The Sun newspaper reported Saturday.

The split is said to have been caused by Prince William‘s career in the army and pressures by the media (there was much speculation about wedding plans).

Prince William, 24, and Kate, 25, last appeared together on the horse tracks at Cheltenham Festival on March 13.

The weekend before that, the couple hit the slopes in Switzerland for a ski trip together.

So ladies, Prince William is single again!!!!!!

UPDATE: Pictures below include the last Kate Middleton sightings taken last week in Dublin, Ireland. Kate (sans Prince William) is pictured with her mother, Carole Elizabeth, on April 5 and with a gal pal on April 3.

    Finally goodbye to Kate the Bore!!!

    As I always say, it will be great if William ends up marrying Charlotte of Monaco. After his mother Diana, Charlotte can bring a beauty for the next generations of British Royal Family who can “almost” be considered ugly.

    Kate will find a rich husband and get into the high society someday soon. Which she wants very much.

    Good luck to both. They are still so young.

    How sad. Five years is a long time for a young couple to be together. But, it’s good to end things and not rush into a marriage that could end up in divorce like so many of the British Royal family mariages have done. I wish them both well for the future.

    Ha! Kate messed herself up by sacrificing her independence and self-respect just to go for the tiara.

    That’s a pity. I thought she came across like an assured, confident young woman who had done well under the scrutiny of all the media bruhaha. She was non-******, didn’t create scandals and didn’t ponder to the whole media-whoring game. I wonder if the contributing last straw was the emergence of those photos where Will was supposed to have taken one or two blonde girls back with him into his joint/barrack? It’d be nice to see them both do well in the future.

    Charlotte Casiraghi is catholic and the future king of England cannot marry a catholic. The windsors are horse faced and fugly not even the genes of someone as beautiful as Charlotte could help counteract the years of inbreeding that had uglied these people up.

    Prince William and Charlotte of Monaco would make a beautiful couple! I think if both parties come from a royal background, they would understand what kind of life they getting into and what challenges to face.

    meemee Says:

    I wonder if there is more to the breakup than what has been reported so far? Any woman who will be with Prince William will have to deal with the intense media scrutiny.

    Kate seems to be a self-assured woman and I guess all the media pressure has gotten to her. When I read sometime back that she complained about the media pressure, I started to wonder if she would be able to handle it.

    amara Says:

    Charlotte is far to beautiful and intelligent to marry someone as ugly as William. Ain’t going to happen people so get over it. Charlotte could do so much better than hooking up with a middle class heir to Britians biggets welfare payouts.

    William is not ugly. WTF?
    I never thought she was queen material anyway.

    canuckistani Says:

    William needs to go sew his wild oats anyways. He’s been with Kate since his early twenties, he needs to go get some sexual variety and experience before settling down. It will be interesting to see who William takes up with next. Hopefully the media won’t kill it with marriage speculation like this one.

    Emme Says:

    yes, ok, whatever.. they broke up.. Such a shame.. now lets get to the real issue.. What the hell is Kate’s friend wearing?? Could she not find an outfit that would hide her hideous, bruised covered legs.. or perhaps a pair of shoes that matched her outfit? Maybe money for a pedicure or a fake tan.. Kate went from hanging out with royalty, to hanging out with someone who could pass as a cheap hooker.. Kate looks so stylish, and her friend looks like *blergh*..

    I never really paid attention to kate, but now that she & willy have broken up, I have to admit that she does have a pleasantness to her face.. and what a stylish mother too..

    Well, I was hoping for an engagement announcement, not a break-up.

    Oh well, good luck to both of them.

    Cyndi Says:

    This relationship was standing on its last leg. About time both moved on, for her to actually get a life and a career beyond waiting…..and wating more for a prince 2 marry her. For William, to grow into himself, date around, build his military career and advance his royal duty.

    I predict that they will get back together. Besides Prince William doesn’t seem to be doing much of anything. What military career? I think it is a publicity thing to get the media off Kate’s a**.

    ———————————
    I live in England and saw on the news today that William (whilst out on the town with his Blues and Royals army colleagues last week) was seen frolicking with a couple of ladies! It is thought that this, the intense media attention Kate was receiving and the media speculation that they would soon marry (which William said he didn’t want to do until he was at least 28) led to the break up. The guy was apparently under pressure to get hitched.

    kate is so plain looking but she would have made the right kind of Queen – she doesn’t court attention and is much more of a lady than say chelsy is…. William is always out boozing – Grow up!
    he and his brother are always falling into the gutter or beating up a paparazzi – really it is time for both of them to get on with their lives. If william wasn’t ready to marry kate now he won’t be getting married for some time, good luck to him finding someone who will keep quiet…

    coalharbourqt Says:

    Good for them for not succumbing to the pressure to get married that any young couple would face after 5 years together. At least there won’t be any messy divorce to endure in the media. It’s easy for people to sit and judge these two, but I think they have handled themselves extremely well under the intense scrutiny and pressure they have both faced in the past few years. I hope they both find the person who is right for them when they are ready.

    Liz Says:

    I a from the UK and am not sad these two split. I like Katie Middleton and she would have made a regal queen but those two had no chemisryt and were so boring it hurt. Now, William and Charlotte Casiraghi, beauty, breeding and brains. William, find her address. It shouldn’t be a crime since all European royals are related. The American Grandmother on Charlotte’s side would be the only bleep since everthing American is cheap, over the top and classless. Sorry, didn’t me to insult any one, just a common opinion held around the world.

    Mediterranean Says:

    Kate will find a very nice guy with a lot of family money and most probably aristocrat. Don’t worry about her.

    She is not ugly at all, she can sometimes even be considered beautiful as she is in some photos but she surely doesn’t have IT. She is so boring.

    After having a mother like Diana, her sons will end up marrying someone like her. Diana was not beautiful but she had IT; she certainly knew how to look beautiful.

    Devon Says:

    Maybe William should take up with an attention seeking publicity ********* like his mom. A woman with true class. Numerous affairs with the help, a red haired child that sans a DNA test everyone around the world knows is not a Windsor. Yes you English are full of class. Charlotte because of her American blood is way to good for the horse faced William.

    aryna Says:

    Liz, The only reason anyone gives a damn about Monaco’s royalty is because of her American grandmother if it wasn’t for her no one care about them, one more thing it’s because of her American grandmother she is considered beautiful. Her grandmother had grace, charm, talent and was look up to by even your precious Diana. Get your facts straight.

    Wow, coming from someone (a commoner at that) from the UK that last American comment was surprising. Considering everything in the UK is overpriced, bland, and common. Sorry, didn’t mean to insult anyone, just a common opinion around. the world. Must suck to be so ordinary….err,sorry I meant common.

    i'm hungry Says:

    Well I held out on this one until it was plastered all over my homepages on CNN and the BBC.

    Poor girl, the media were nothing more than hound dogs on the chase with her.
    William will find someone else and so will she. They’re are both SO young.

    However just a question. for anyone willing to read.. would you give up your privacy, history, and personal freedoms to date a royal like William? It is a death sentence or the perfect formula for a boring relationship. If you don’t do anything and stay indoors you’re boring… and if you do do “something” normal, you might be considered reckless. Either way, a throng of ravenous photographers will be hiding behind cars, bushes and ledges for shots of you walking your dog. Can’t win, the way I see it. Bless, at least they have money! =)

    Sam from France Says:

    The irony in all that is that people always compared the glam couple formed by William and Kate to the trashy couple composed by Harry and Chelsy. And of course a lot were like ‘Chelsy’s not gonna be in the picture for long: the royal family will kick her out’…And now she’s still in and the lovely Kate is out…

    That being said, don’t pay attention to my sarcasm: I would have loved to see those two wed…Then again no one says they will never: maybe they’re not ready now but could find each other again a few years later (well that’s if the story is true of course)

    Charlotte “AMERICAN BLOOD” is actually charlotte irish and german blood(grace kelly was irish and german)
    ____________________

    If we are getting technical about it then actually Grace Kelly was AMERICAN with an Irish and German heritage, as all AMERICANS have a heritage that comes from some other country. Except the Native Americans of course.
    She was born in Pennsylvania, United States by the way. Doesn’t matter where her bloodline came from though, she was still an American and a proud one from what I’ve read about her.

  42. 42
    e Says:

    if no(41) is devon so

    if you are using the word blood that’s means your origins so she has irish/geman blood
    plus grace kelly always talked about her irish blood so…………………..
    and i know that “all AMERICANS have a heritage that comes from some other country.”

    INDEED even Native Americans come from another continent than america

    Liz, LOL!!! I’m American and I’ve had English friends and they always make “sport” of Americans. If you watch their TV shows, you know what I mean. Don’t take it personally. We have surpassed the French as most hated over there. When they make jokes, I always laughed and talked about their inbreeding and bad teeth. But I love the English humor.

    jq Says:

    Kate came from a rich , aristocratic family, she doesn’t need to marry Prince Wiliam to live well. She can marry other rich young man and still have her freedom not being harassed by the media , scrutinized by the public. ending up like Princess Diana. I think Kate is smart and make the right move.

    maxine Says:

    Hmm.. Grace Kelly was “cheap, over the top and classless”? Whatever. I’m sure Jordan is the epitome of class. I hope that Wills didn’t make the same mistake Charles did when he let Camilla go years before he met Diana. Diana was great but Camilla is a better match and they’re happy together. Kate doesn’t come from an aristocratic family (her parents have a mail-order business) but she has a bright future ahead of her. I’m sure she’ll marry some rich, titled guy and live a quiet life of luxury.
    BTW, Charlotte Casiraghi is a Catholic and therefore cannot marry Prince William. Poor William will probably end up marrying some horse-faced “English Rose.” ;)

    Charlotte Says:

    the monaco Charlotte is not even considered royalty in Europe…

    William is 25 and he’s been already 5 years with Kate…
    Princes marry when they’re over 30… unfortunately their relationship had bad timing.

    As many princes in Europe, they let their first girlfriend go even though she’s the perfect one, simply because they are too young for commitment

    Jana Says:

    I feel bad for Kate. I’m sure she’s heart- broken. I bet her mother is even more heart-broken

    Mediterranean Says:

    Kate might have been much busier for the acceptance of the Royal Family than paying attention on her relationship with William. She might have been doing all the things to please the Royal Family, instead of enjoying her togetherness with herboyfriend who happens to be the second heir to the throne. Anyway, they will find the right ones for themselves in the future.

    Prince William will become King (if there will still be) in 21st Century. He will be a symbolic king. He can marry anyone with whom he wants to spend his life together. He will surely not make the same mistake as his father did; married Diana because she was virgin and very suitable to give a birth to the next heir.

    Charlotte’s late maternel grandparents, mother and late father were so beautiful. Princess Grace of Monaco was the reason Monaco has become known by all over the world.

    I don’t think that Kate is Camilla of his life, she was Diana and he didn’t make the same mistake as his father made by marrying his mother.

    Kate was very suitable for the firm and the people as Diana had been at the beginning but he didn’t love Kate enough to spend rest of his life.

    Hopefully, both of them will find the one.
