Kate Middleton and Prince William became The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they married in 2011, and have since gone on to welcome Prince George and Princess Charlotte – and now a third child as Kate announced earlier this year that she is pregnant.
And while the world finds it hard to imagine a time before the Kate and Wills love story, there was a time when both the brunette beauty and her charming Prince had different partners.
It appears the group are still good friends, as in 2012, a year after marrying, Kate and William attended a friend’s wedding where William’s exes Olivia Hunt and Rose Farquhar attended, as well as Kate’s exes, Willem Marx and Henry Ropner.
However, what is even stranger is the bizarre link between all the exes – they all look just like Kate and Wills.

With similar looks to Kate, 33 year old Rose Farquhar is an actress who dated Prince William back in 2000.
Most recently, Rose auditioned for The Voice in 2016 and also appeared on How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria? back in 2006.

Now, the 33 year old is married to Nicholas Wilkinson and remains good friends with the Middleton family as she attended the wedding of Pippa Middleton and James Matthews earlier in the year.

Kate Middleton dated journalist Willem Marx during her time at Malborough – who is the spitting image of her now husband.
The 34 year is still a journalist, as well as an author, with his Twitter bio reading: “Author – Balochistan at a Crossroads Author’s Proceeds Going to Polio Eradication.”
Willem is also now married to Italian TV presenter Johanna Botta, who he has one son with.

Since the Duchess announced the news, she has remained out of the limelight due to severe morning sickness – also known as hyperemesis gravidarum.
However, it appears Kate is feeling better, as the star shows off her incredible maternity style on several outings.
