Prince William seemed to suggest that he was present at Kate Middleton's first meeting with the Queen.


This baffled royal watchers because Kate met the monarch when she attended the wedding of William's first cousin Peter Phillips in Windsor back in 2008, as reported by Hello.

At the time, her then-boyfriend William was in Kenya, so Kate attended the ceremony solo.

Kate's presence at the wedding made headlines at the time because it was deemed as a sign that her relationship with William was serious.

But in an interview in 2010, William seemed to suggest that he was present at the wedding, too.

When Kate talked about how it felt meeting the Queen for the first time, William chimed in: "She was very welcoming. She knew it was a big day and everything was going on with Peter and Autumn, she had wanted to meet Kate for a while, so it was very nice for her to come over and say hello, we had a little chat and got on really well."

But William was not around during that wedding as he was then reported to be in Kenya attending the wedding of his ex-girlfriend Jecca Craig's brother.


Although he and Jecca parted ways, he remained close with the Craig family. He even flew to Kenya again in 2016 to attend Jecca's own wedding.


During Peter and Autumn's Windsor nuptials, Kate was seen in the company of Prince Harry and his then-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy.

Kate, who became the Duchess of Cambrige after marrying Prince William in 2011, wowed fashion observers that time.

He sported a pale pink jacket, a sheer black top and full skirt, matching her veiled pillbox hat.

Although William wasn't able to join his cousin's wedding, Peter and his family didn't take it against the royal.

"Prince William is going to be out of the country this weekend on a long-standing prior engagement," the insider said. "It is an unfortunate clash but he spoke to his cousin Peter and he is fine with the situation. His girlfriend will be going in his absence."
