Prince Philip’s Stern Warning To Prince William When He Was Dating Kate

Just when you think you’ve heard all there is to hear about Kate and William’s courtship, now comes word that Will’s grandfather basically told him to get his s**t together after dumping Kate for the second time.

While the now married couple was dating in college, they had their issues and were off-and-on with their relationship, as many young people are prone to do. When you’re the future King, you have to be picky. Rushing into a romance with someone you have lukewarm feelings for is not the smartest move, and evidently, William was hyper aware of this.

According to royal correspondent Camilla Tominey, William was feeling “claustrophobic” in his relationship with Kate, but even so, their final split in 2007 only lasted a few months before William realized he couldn’t live without Kate.

But before they got back together, at least one member of the royal family piped up about William playing “fast and loose.”

In a 2007 Sunday Express story, Tominey revealed that Prince Philip intervened in the young couple’s relationship.

Tominey says after William complained to his grandparents that he wasn’t sure about his feelings for Kate, the Duke of Edinburgh reportedly warned his grandson that he was playing with fire.

Tominey quotes a royal source as saying: “After they split up, William confided to his grandparents that he was not sure if he loved Kate enough.”

The Queen reportedly wanted William to do the right thing by either marrying her or letting her go.

“She would rather they broke up for good now than get married only to have it end in divorce if five years’ time,” wrote Tominey, adding, “Prince Philip has told William he cannot keep stringing along Kate for ever.”

William proposed to Kate in 2010, one year before they got married and 7 years after they started dating.
