She appreciates what wives and families go through.”The daughter of a flight attendant and a flight dispatcher, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton was born in Reading, England, on Jan. 9, 1982, and grew up with a younger sister, Pippa, and a younger brother, James.It was at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland that Middleton first met William, who is second in line to the throne. First friends and then housemates along with two other students, the pair became romantically linked around 2004, when they were pictured together on a skiing trip in Switzerland. Middleton graduated in 2005 with a degree in art history and a budding relationship with the prince.KATE MIDDLETON, PRINCE WILLIAM APPEAR IN FIRST OFFICIAL JOINT PORTRAIT

Even so, the British media followed every twist in their relationship, including a brief split in 2007. William later acknowledged that the couple’s romance wobbled for several months, saying they were both young and trying to find their way.The tabloids dubbed her “Waity Katie” for her patience during their courtship. The couple eventually married at Westminster Abbey in 2011. They have three children. The Associated Press contributed to this report. Stephanie Nolasco covers entertainment at Foxnews.com.
