The Untold Truth Of Kate Middleton | Full Biography

The Untold Truth Of Kate Middleton- Living in Jordan One thing Middleton managed to keep out of the papers for years was the location of her early childhood home. When Middleton's father was still working as a pilot for British Airways, he was offered the chance to move to Jordan as part of a promotion. The family moved to the capital city of Amman in May 1984, when Kate was 2 years old. According to the Daily Mail, the family's"shabby" three-bedroom rental later became a medical center for children. 

Meeting her prince Middleton met her future husband in 2001 when they were both students at the prestigious University of St. Andrews in Scotland, but it wasn't exactly love at first sight. They reportedly spent about a year in the friend zone before they ever started dating. Middleton told the UK Press Association in2010, "William wasn't there for quite a bit of the time initially. He wasn't there for a bit of it, so it did take a bit of time for us to get to know each other." 

It was rumored that Middleton had a 90s crush on Prince William, and even had a poster of her future boyfriend on her bedroom wall. Former classmates even told The Telegraph that Middleton would always say "there's no one quite like William" when their talks turned to boys. The William poster made for a great story, but as it turns out, it was too good to be true. The Duchess set the record straight in 2010, revealing her true crush, "I had Levi's guy on my wall, not a picture of William, sorry." Family ties She may be one of the most famous Brits around, but Middleton actually has the blood of one of the most important figures in American history running through her veins. In 2010, the New England Historic GenealogicalSociety uncovered that Middleton is actually related to George Washington, the first President of the United States. 

She's an eighth cousin eight times removed. But, hey, that's still pretty cool. Making royal history When Middleton married Prince William at the age of 29 in 2010, she became the oldest bride in England's history to marry a king-in-waiting, according to The Telegraph. For comparison, Princess Diana was just 20when she married Prince Charles, in 1981. But the odd thing about this accolade is that it isn't technically true. Eleanor of Aquitaine was said to be about30 when she married Henry II way back in 1152 — and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, was in her fifties when she became Charles' second wife in 2005. So why don't they count? Because they had both been married before. 

This is why divorcee Meghan Markle won't dethroneKate as the oldest royal bride when she marries Prince Harry, in 2018, despite the fact that she'll be 37 years old. Bringing up baby Middleton has had complicated pregnancies. She was first hospitalized in December 2012for an acute and severe form of morning sickness, called hyperemesis gravidarum, which ultimately prompted the Royal family to confirm that, yes, she was pregnant with her first child, George. 

Unfortunately for Middleton, the debilitating condition returned in 2014, when she became pregnant with Charlotte. Journalist Miriam Phillips noted Middleton'sdiagnosis in the Guardian, writing, "Hopefully, this increased media attention will help the poor expectant mums, who like me, were wiped out by the condition." It all happened the same way with the recent announcement of a third royal baby. According to The Sun, Middleton was rushed to a hospital in Scotland while visiting the Queen in 2017. A tragic prank Middleton's severe morning sickness wasn'tthe worst thing about her first pregnancy. 

After learning that the Duchess was being treated at Westminster's King Edward VII's Hospital, the hosts of an Australian radio show called the hospital, pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles. 
"Oh hello there, could I please speak to Kate please my granddaughter." "Yes just hold on ma'am" "Thank you" Staff member, Jacintha Saldanha, who answered the phone, was fooled by 2Day FM DJs, Mel Greig, and Michael Christian, and transferred their call to the nurse in charge of Middleton. The phone call was broadcast, and a few days later, Saldanha — a wife and mother — took her own life. 

Greig told A Current Affair, "There's not a minute that goes by that I don't think about what that family is going through and the thought that we may have played a part to it is gut-wrenching." An investigation cleared the pair of any culpability.
