Prince William used a bizarre fake name when he first met Kate Middleton at university.
- Prince William is believed to have used a fake name at university in an attempt to fly under the radar and not draw attention to himself as the future King on campus.
- St Andrews University in Scotland is where Prince William and Kate Middleton's love story first began, although it's been claimed that their paths actually crossed in a weird twist of fate years before.
- This royal news comes after the heartbreaking 'sign of the times' the Queen's reign is coming to an end was revealed.
Kate Middleton and Prince William are celebrating 11 years of marriage on April 29th 2022, marking the special day they tied the knot and became the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The iconic royal pair, who now split their family living between London's Kensington Palace and Norfolk's Amner Hall, said their 'I dos' at Westminster Abbey in London as millions around the world watched on to watch the fairytale wedding of the decade.
But before Kate made it down the aisle and became a member of the royal family, the couple's love story started when they were students at St Andrews University in Scotland.
Having admitted that they started off as friends before romance blossomed, Kate and William moved into a shared student house together, with the future King recalling during their engagement interview that he would cook spaghetti bolognese to impress her.
While the early days of their dating story sound surprisingly normal, Prince William is believed to have also adopted a far more low-key sounding name while at university, too, in order to blend into campus life and be as ordinary as possible.
Prince William was officially enrolled at university under the name William Wales (similarly, his children George, Charlotte and Louis are believed to use the surname Cambridge at school).
But William Wales needed a way to fly under the radar and draw as little attention to his royal presence as possible, reportedly requesting to be known as Steve.
