Catherine ElizabethKateMiddleton (born 9 January 1982) is the fiancée of Prince William of Wales. Their wedding will take place on 29 April 2011 at Westminster Abbey, with the day declared a bank holiday in the UK.

Middleton grew up in Berkshire and, after attending Marlborough College, went to the University of St Andrews, where she met Prince William, also studying there, in 2001.

Since her relationship with Prince William began, Middleton has received widespread media attention and there was much speculation that they would eventually marry. On 16 November 2010, the office of the Prince of Wales at Clarence House announced their engagement. The date and location of the wedding were announced one week later.

Middleton was born at Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, Berkshire.  She is the eldest of three children born to Carole Elizabeth (born 1955, née Goldsmith), a flight attendant, and Michael Francis Middleton (born 1949), a flight dispatcher and later an airline officer for British Airways. Her parents married on 21 June 1980 at the Parish Church of Dorney, Buckinghamshire  and in 1987 founded Party Pieces, a mail order company that sells party supplies and decorations.

Middleton’s paternal family came from Leeds, West Yorkshire, and her great-grandmother Olivia was a member of the Lupton family, who were active for generations in Leeds in commercial and municipal work.  Through Olivia Lupton, her ancestors include The Rev. Thomas Davis, a Church of England hymn-writer.  Carole Middleton’s maternal family, the Harrisons, were working class labourers and miners from County Durham.  Middleton has two siblings, Philippa Charlotte, known as “Pippa”, and James William.  Pippa Middleton, a graduate of the University of Edinburgh, has received press coverage since her sister became famous, with focus on her relationships and lifestyle.  Middleton’s family were in Amman, Jordan from May 1984 to September 1986, where Middleton went to an English language nursery school, before returning to their home in Berkshire.

After her return from Amman, Middleton was educated at St. Andrew’s School in the village of Pangbourne in Berkshire, then briefly at Downe House, before moving on to Marlborough College, a co-educational independent school in Wiltshire, followed by the University of St Andrews in Fife, where she met William and graduated with a 2:1 (Hons) in the History of Art.

In November 2006, Middleton accepted a position as an accessory buyer with clothing chain Jigsaw.

In September 2007, it was reported that Middleton was planning to give up her job as an accessory buyer to become a professional photographer. Some months later, it was announced that she intended to take private classes with photographer Mario Testino, who had taken several well-known photographs of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her sons. Middleton and Testino apparently were introduced by Prince William. Testino later denied that Middleton was going to be working for him. In December 2007, it was also reported that Middleton had moved in with Prince William at Clarence House, the residence of the Prince of Wales in London.  Clarence House later denied this.

On 17 May 2008, Middleton attended the wedding of William’s cousin Peter Phillips to Autumn Kelly, which the prince did not attend.  On 19 July 2008, Middleton attended the wedding of Lady Rose Windsor and George Gilman. William was away on military operations in the Caribbean, serving aboard the HMS Iron Duke.

On 28 February 2010, The Times reported that Middleton was pursuing an invasion of privacy suit against photographer Niraj Tanna who took pictures of her over Christmas 2009, although they were never published in Britain. Middleton has not pursued the claim against the photographer.

Middleton has been featured in several best-dressed lists and was selected by The Daily Telegraph as the “Most Promising Newcomer” in its 2006 list of style winners and losers.  Tatler placed her at #8 on its yearly listing of the top ten style icons in 2007.  She was also featured in People magazine’s 2007 and 2010 best-dressed lists.  Middleton was named as one of Richard Blackwell‘s ten “Fabulous Fashion Independents” of 2007.  In June 2008 Style.com selected Middleton as its monthly beauty icon.  In July 2008 Middleton was included in Vanity Fair‘s international best-dressed list.

Middleton’s unsubstantiated status as the girlfriend of William brought her widespread media coverage in the UK and abroad, and she was often photographed on her daily outings. On 17 October 2005, she complained through her lawyer about harassment from the media, stating that she had done nothing significant to warrant such publicity.

In February 2006, it was announced that Middleton would receive her own 24-hour security detail supplied by the Royalty and Diplomatic Protection Department. This fuelled further speculation that she and William would soon be engaged, since she would not, otherwise, be entitled to this service. No engagement occurred, and Middleton was not granted an allowance to fund this security. Media attention increased around the time of Middleton’s 25th birthday in January 2007, prompting warnings from both Charles and William and from Middleton’s lawyers, who threatened legal action. Two newspaper groups, News International, which publishes The Times and The Sun, and the Guardian Media Group, publishers of The Guardian, decided to refrain from publishing paparazzi photographs of her.

Middleton attended at least one event as an official royal guest, William’s Passing Out Parade at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst on 15 December 2006.

On 14 April 2007 The Sun newspaper broke a “world exclusive” suggesting that Prince William and Middleton had split up.  Other media outlets such as the BBC confirmed the story as the day progressed. The couple decided to break up during a holiday in the Swiss resort of Zermatt.

Clarence House made only one comment about the relationship’s end, according to The Times, stating, “We don’t comment on Prince William’s private life.”  Newspapers speculated about the reasons for the split, although these reports relied on anonymous sources. The original report in The Sun quoted a “close friend of the couple” as saying that Middleton felt William had not been paying her enough attention. The paper highlighted reports that William had been spending time with other young women, and said the Prince, aged 24 at the time of the split, felt he was too young to marry.

A report in the Daily Mail blamed a desire by royal courtiers not to “hurry along” a marriage announcement, and William’s desire to enjoy his bachelor status within his Army career. The Mail also suggested that William’s friend Guy Pelly encouraged the Prince to take a “careless approach” to relationships. The same article suggested that Middleton had “expected too much” in wanting William to demonstrate his commitment to her.

In June 2007, Middleton and William insisted they were “just good friends” following reports of a reconciliation.  Middleton and her family attended the Concert for Diana at Wembley Stadium; she and William sat two rows apart.  The couple were subsequently seen together in public on a number of occasions, and several news sources, including the BBC and the Daily Mail, stated that they had “rekindled their relationship.”  Middleton also joined William and Charles on a deerstalking expedition at Balmoral and attended the wedding of William’s cousin, Peter Phillips, even though William, due to a prior commitment, did not. In April 2008, Middleton accompanied William when he was awarded his RAF wings at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell.  On 16 June 2008, Middleton attended William’s investiture into the Order of the Garter along with the Royal Family.

Prince William and Kate Middleton became engaged in October 2010 in Kenya, East Africa, during a 10-day trip to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy to celebrate William’s passing his RAF helicopter search and rescue course.  Clarence House announced the engagement on 16 November 2010.

The couple are to marry in Westminster Abbey on 29 April 2011.

It is customary for royal men to receive a dukedom when they marry; possible dukedoms for William after his marriage are Clarence, Cambridge, Sussex, Kendal, Avondale, and Strathearn.  As the wife of a royal duke and prince, Middleton would assume the title of duchess.

In Letters Patent dated 21 August 1996 (shortly before the divorce of the Prince and Princess of Wales) it was acknowledged that, “by convention”, the wife of a son or grandson of the Sovereign is entitled to the style title or attribute of “Royal Highness”.  If William were not given a title then, after the wedding, Middleton would, by convention (unless explicitly vetoed by the Queen), be known as Her Royal Highness Princess William of Wales taking her husband’s first name on marriage (as with Princess Michael of Kent).  If, however, William is given a title, she would be known as “Her Royal Highness The Duchess [or other rank if appropriate] of N”.

On 16 February 2011, Clarence House announced that Middleton’s and William’s first royal tour of Canada would take place in July 2011.  She was formally introduced to public life on 24 February 2011, some two months before the wedding, when she and William attended a lifeboat naming ceremony in Trearddur, North Wales.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the day of birth and the 4th, 5th and 6th letters of the name.

Catherine Elizabeth Middleton   January 9th, 1982

9 (born on the 9th of the month) + 8 (h is the 8th letter of the alphabet) + 5 (e is the 5th letter of the alphabet) + 18 (r is the 18th letter of the alphabet) = 40

So from ages twenty-seven to fifty-four she has the number 40 going on.

40 = Princess.

Carole Middleton

March 14, 2011, 12:01 AM

.—“It is something they absolutely wanted to do, and William graciously accepted,” a senior aide tells Vanity Fair writer Katie Nicholl, confirming the rumor that the Middletons would be making a six-figure contribution to the royal wedding. Traditionally the royal family alone pays the entire cost.

“At first Carole rather enjoyed the attention,” a family friend tells Nicholl of Kate Middleton’s mother. “She seemed to find the whole thing quite dizzying, but the constant nit-picking in the press did get to her.” But, says neighbor and friend Lynda Tillotson, “in the village we are very protective. There’s a lot of camaraderie towards the Middletons. I think they have coped amazingly well, given the attention…. Carole was in here the other day buying candles and she was in great spirits. She’s a great-looking woman, who is always very relaxed, lively, and outgoing…. Michael is a lovely man, very calm and kind.” A family friend tells Nicholl that Michael, Kate’s father, has been a stabilizing influence. “Kate’s feet are still on the ground, largely because of Michael. He doesn’t get too swept up in the grandeur of her new life, and Kate loves him for that. She gets a lot of her characteristics from him.”

It’s these qualities which friends suspect have helped Kate navigate her tumultuous relationship and make her family so appealing to William. “William loves his holidays with the Middletons because they are so relaxed,” explains a friend. “He’s always saying how much fun Carole is. She’s very young in spirit and a great entertainer. One of her and Michael’s favorite after-dinner party jokes is announcing the flights coming into Mustique in their best air-steward voices as they dine alfresco. It always has William in hysterics.”

According to Nicholl, the Middleton children—Kate, Pippa, and James—are incredibly close, and are often seen out together, thus having earned the nickname “the En Masse Middletons.” “They queue up like everyone else and pay at the end of the night,” says Michael Evans, who manages a bar in London’s Mayfair. “They let their hair down, but they are always reserved.”

“Pippa has always had high standards,” friends say of Kate’s younger sister. “Ideally her date has to be wealthy and clever, and preferably he’ll have a double-barrel surname. It will help that she is now the most sought-after singleton in London. Pippa’s a great networker, like her mother. At Edinburgh she made sure she hung out with the right crowd.” And Kate’s brother, James, “is very good-looking and likes to flirt,” says a chum. “He dropped out of Edinburgh, where he was studying En¬glish, after a year. He was a big drinker and loved to party, but he was more interested in drinking and going shooting than girls.”

All three siblings have at some time or another worked for Party Pieces, the financially successful company founded by their parents. Lynda Tillotson says, “Carole was the brains behind the business. She knows what she is doing and she knows where she is going.”

The head for business runs in the family. As James has said, “I really want to promote my company, but I have to be careful. I work really hard—we all do, and I love what I do—but I can never talk about my sister.”
