Prince William and Kate Middleton Split... Is History Repeating Itself?

Prince William and long time girlfriend Kate Middleton, who many thought would one day be Queen, have split due to William's demanding schedule in the Army. William passed out from Sandhurst as an Army officer last December and started his training to be a armoured troop commander in Camp Bovington Dorset on March 16, leaving the couple seeing each other no more than once a week. A "close friend" of the Prince and Miss Middleton told The Sun newspaper: "As far as Kate is concerned, William simply hasn't been paying her enough attention.

This sounds all to reminiscent of Charles and Camilla. Given William's father's relationship history, royal watchers will be wondering whether there will be a chance of a Duchess of Cornwall type scenario, where the pair marry decades later.

Camilla first met the Prince of Wales in the 1970s, but later married Andrew Parker Bowles, then had an affair with the Prince and then finally wed the heir to the throne in 2005 and became an HRH. Comparisons of Kate's treatment by photographers were made with that of Diana, Princess of Wales's experience. However, her actual relationship with William is very similar to that of Charles and Camilla. We can only hope that history doesn't repeat itself.
