The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge announced their engagement 10 years ago and set off to a high-end resort in Seychelles. They reportedly cemented their relationship with a secret “marriage pact”, according to a royal expert.
Katie Nicholl wrote in her book Kate: The Future Queen, that the Cambridges made the pact soon after they got back together.
The Cambridges are believed to have broken up twice during their 10-year romance.
Prince William reportedly suffered from cold feet after feeling pressure to marry the Duchess earlier in the summer of 2007.
It is said to have left the Duchess heartbroken at her family’s Berkshire home and could have seen an end to the Cambridges’ romance.

But the couple rekindled their relationship weeks before Prince William was photographed partying with a blonde girl in a Fulham club.
The Duchess had told Prince William to “let off some steam” after they enjoyed their Seychelles trip, according to the Mail on Sunday.
As part of their “marriage pact”, the Cambridges reportedly agreed to wait until after Prince William had finished his Army training and his Navy and RAF duties.
After the couple announced their engagement, the Cambridges took part in a TV interview.
