Once upon a time in a land far, far away (the year 2001, to be precise), Prince William first crossed paths with Kate Middleton in the halls of the University of St. Andrews, sparking the very beginnings of the modern fairytale we all know and love. 

According to Katie Nicholl's new book, Kate: The Future Queen, the first in-depth biography of the Duchess of Cambridge, it's been revealed that the pair made a "marriage pact" in 2007, agreeing to one day get married. The pact was intended to take the pressure off their relationship, whilst still ensuring that they would still end up together. Spoiler alert: they did. 

While couple did part ways shortly after the pact was made, they soon reunited two months later, and have been inseperable since. Four years later, in 2011, they were officially married as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and in 2013, they welcomed little Prince George into the world, the first of the three children they currently have together.
