Meanwhile, sources apparently said the Queen was disappointed by their brief break-up.

Both William and Kate have previously discussed their split in 2007.

William had been having second thoughts.

William said during an interview after their engagement was announced in 2010: “Well I think to be honest, I wouldn’t believe everything you read in the paper but in that particular instance we did split up for a bit.

“But that was just, we both were very young, it was at university, we were sort of both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff.”

“I really valued that time for me as well although I didn’t think it at the time. Looking back on it.”
