It’s a case of double celebrations for Prince William and Kate Middleton this weekend.

The royal couple’s seventh wedding anniversary falls just days after they welcomed their third child, son Prince Louis.

And while they  famously fell in love in 2003, after meeting at St Andrews University, Kate actually had to wait five years before meeting the Queen.

In an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby straight after her engagement to Prince William was announced, Kate explained when exactly she was introduced to Queen Elizabeth.

“Well I first met her at Peter and Autumn’s wedding and again it was in amongst a lot of other guests and she was very friendly,” Kate said.

William then chimed in, commending his grandmother for making Kate feel welcome.

“She was very welcoming, she knew it was a big day and everything was going on with Peter and Autumn, she had wanted to meet Kate for a while, so it was very nice for her to come over and say hello, we had a little chat and got on very well,” he said.

Now the Queen and Kate are allies in the royal family – often appearing together at official engagements and captured laughing together in photos.
