Prince William ended up ‘snubbing’ Kate Middleton in favor of a ‘secret crush’ during a birthday bash

Kate Middleton was reportedly snubbed by her now-husband Prince William during his 21st birthday bash, back in their dating years.

The story has been narrated by royal author Katie Nicholl, in her interview with Express UK.

There, she was quoted saying, “Kate didn’t know whether they had been romantically involved or not, but she noted that Jecca had been seated at the head table next to William, whereas Kate had to raise her glass to toast the prince from afar.”

“And Ian came along with a pretty radical idea, which was: ‘You can’t keep these two entities separate. They need to be together.’ This is where I started to realise what the job is.”
