Just when you thought it didn’t get more exciting than going behind the scenes of American Idol

On April 13, newly single Prince William hit the town for a wild night out in London, racking up a nearly $10,000 bar tab and partying so hard that by 3:30 a.m. he “was struggling to stand up,” a club source told Us Weekly.

Of course, it was then revealed that the hunky prince had split from girlfriend Kate Middleton.

So, where did this relationship go wrong?

“Kate wanted an assurance that there was going to be a future for them, and William wasn’t ready to give that,” said a Middleton source.

“His family advised him not to rush into things, and so in the end, he couldn’t give her what she wanted.”

Sort of like Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Manson. We guess.

The strain only deepened when Prince William, now a second lieutenant in the British Army, was stationed in a training camp in Dorset, England — two hours away from Middleton’s $1.6 million London apartment — yet he didn’t make time to see “Babykins” (his pet name for Middleton, which is only slightly less obnoxious than anything Heather Mills says).

“Kate never felt like William put her in first place,” said a former classmate. “To meet up for dinner, she would have to run four or five different dates by him before he would say he was available. Usually when you are in a relationship, you drop everything for your loved one, but William wasn’t like that.”

Indeed, he sounds more self-involved than Spencer Pratt.

Lastly, Us reports that one person is relieved the prince didn’t rush into anything: his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.

“The queen was fond of Kate, but wants William to take his time choosing a wife to avoid another royal divorce like the ones that damaged the monarchy in the ’90s,” royal correspondent Judy Wade said.

It’s true that divorces are painful. Take note of that, Hulk Hogan.
