Before receiving the title of Her Royal Highness, the Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton was better known as "Kate."
The eldest daughter of Carole and Michael Middleton, Kate started her freshman year at University of St. Andrews in Scotland in the same dormitory as Prince William.
The friends eventually began dating, and there were several false starts in the tea towel and china industries before William finally asked Kate to marry him in the fall of 2010.
Before then, though, theirs was a courtship like most others, with a small break in April 2007 that only months later Will would rectify.
The only difference is that Kate never looked worse for wear when her photo was taken. In fact, she looked glorious.
Your 20s was the stuff of dreams, Kate.
