Marriages Kate Middleton, April 2011 – present

Prince William became the second in line to the throne when he was born to Prince Charles and Princess Diana in 1982. He has a younger brother, Prince Harry.

The young William went on his first royal tour with his parents when he was just 9 months old, embarking on a trip to Australia and New Zealand.

Charles and Diana divorced in 1996 and Diana tragically died in a car accident in Paris in 1997. William walked behind the cortege at her funeral alongside Harry.

Prince William studied at independent schools and took his A-Levels at Eton, where he also did well at sports. After leaving he went on a gap year before enrolling at the University Of St Andrews in Fife.

It was during this time that William met Kate Middleton, a fellow student at the university. They started dating in 2003.

After graduating with a 2:1 in Geography in 2005, William joined the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst as an Officer Cadet and became a Second Lieutenant in the Household Cavalry in 2006.

Kate attended William’s passing-out parade at Sandhurst and their relationship remained under scrutiny.

William and Kate were reported to have split in April 2007 but soon got back together and in 2010 they announced their engagement.

In a moving gesture, William gave Kate the engagement ring that had previously been worn by Princess Diana, his late mother.

The couple married in April 2011. The extravagant ceremony at London’s Westminster Abbey was estimated to have a global audience of at least 300 million.

William and Kate lived in Anglesey, Wales while William worked as a search and rescue pilot for the RAF.

In December 2012, St James’s Palace confirmed that Kate was pregnant with the couple’s first child. Prince William became a father when baby Prince George was born on 22 July 2013.

It was announced in September 2014 that William and Kate were expecting their second child.

William continues to undertake royal duties and is also involved in charity and humanitarian work.

In August 2014 it was revealed that he’d be working as a pilot for the East Anglian Air Ambulance from spring 2015 and his salary would be donated to charity.
