Who Did Prince William Date Before Kate?

Who Did Prince William Date Before Kate? The royal wedding of Prince William and Princess Kate, which took place in London’s Westminster Abbey on April 29, 2011, was seen by millions worldwide. From official royal duties to raising three adorable children.

Kate and William met as undergraduates at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland ten years before they tied the knot in 2011.

After finishing school, the two would keep their relationship under wraps, but in 2007, they would publicly break up.

The two got back together in 2010, got engaged in November, and spent the next year happily married. They have three adorable children: George, Charlotte, and Louis.

Who Did Prince William Date Before Kate?

Davina Duckworth-Chad

In the 1990s, before William left for St. Andrews University, he was seen with Davina Duckworth-Chad.

Davina’s mother was a second cousin of Princess Diana; hence the two women have a shared social circle.

The Daily Mail reports that William took Davina on an Aegean Sea trip once, with Prince Charles and Camilla serving as chaperones.

William and Harry attended Davina’s 2004 wedding to Tom Barker, the son of a baronet, and she was on the guest list for William and Kate’s wedding in 2011.

Before he met Kate, Prince William dated aspiring author Olivia Hunt during their time at university.

They remain close friends, and Olivia has even joined William and Kate on a ski trip.

Olivia just tied the knot with the esteemed barrister Nicholas Wilkinson.

Jecca Craig

While on his gap year in Kenya in 2000, Prince William met his ex-girlfriend, Jecca.

While it is believed that nothing romantic had placed between Prince William and his ex-girlfriend Jecca at the time, the Duke of Cambridge did travel to Kenya in 2016 to witness Jecca’s wedding without Kate.

Katie Nicholl wrote the following passage about William in her book William and Harry, published in 2010. She said, “William obviously had a secret crush on Jecca since the first time he met her.”

“She was beautiful, with long blonde hair, deep-blue eyes and legs like a gazelle.”

Isabella Calthorpe

When they were both teenagers, Prince William and the stunning blonde actress Isabella Calthorpe became fast friends through their mutual acquaintance Princess Eugenie.

Cressida Bonas, who famously dated Prince Harry for years, is Isabella’s half-sister.

Nicholl describes Isabella as an “exquisite-looking socialite” who “caught William’s interest” in the summer of 2004 in his book William and Harry.

After Kate and Will decided to try “trial separation,” it was a trying period for both of them.

While Kate was girl-next-door pretty, Isabella boasted cover-girl looks, a title and a stately pile to boot


Will had “hurt Kate deeply,” as the author puts it, by spending the summer with another heiress, Anna Sloan.

To continue, Katie said, Sadly for William she [Isabella] had no aspirations to date a prince and despite his amorous advances declared that she was not interested.”

After seeing several men, Isabella married Richard Branson’s son Sam and showed up for Kate and Wills’ wedding in 2011.
