Kate started all-women drinking club at uni – but there’s something a bit odd

Kate Middleton famously met her prince at university, reportedly winning him over after years of friendship by taking to the catwalk in her underwear.

The pair were close pals and even lived together before they started dating, sharing a lot of interests including sports and a naughty sense of humour.

And as well as their common passions, Kate had her own interests and she even set up her own club during her time at St Andrew’s – and while it’s a bit surprising, we love her for it.

In a bid to address the traditionally men’s only drinking clubs, she decided to set up her own version for women.

But there was something a bit odd about her involvement in it.

Before Kate and William’s engagement was announced, the Guardian reported: "At university, Kate continued to grow in confidence.

"She co-founded a girls’ drinking society, ‘annoyed that the old ones excluded women’."

However, none of her old pals or fellow club members remember her too drinking much – and they don’t remember her ever getting drunk.

VERY well behaved for a co-founder!

Kate and Wills started university in 2001 and they were both studying History of Art.



However after two years, Wills decided he wasn’t enjoying the subject so switched to Georgraphy.

When asked about the moment they first laid eyes on each other, William said he would have to "wrack his brains" to remember it.

But Kate on the other hand remembers the moment perfectly, and it’s fair to say it understandably probably wasn’t her most cool and collected moment.

During the couple’s engagement interview back in 2010 she recalled the moment she first saw her future husband.

She said: "I actually went bright red when I met you and scuttled off feeling very shy about meeting you.

"William wasn’t there for quite a bit of the time initially, he wasn’t there from Fresher’s Week, so it did take a bit of time for us to get to know each other.

"But we did become very close friends from quite early on."
