WE’VE all heard the story of how Kate Middleton caught Prince William’s eye when she donned a see-through dress during a charity fashion show university - and after that, they were virtually inseparable.
But did you know that Kate‘s famous sheer dress was actually supposed to be a SKIRT?
Fashion expert and auctioneer Kerry Taylor told US Weekly that the Duchess of Cambridge showed “great enterprise” when she decided to rework the piece for the charity fashion show back in 2002.
Kerry said: “It was meant to be a skirt actually and she kind of yanked it up and wore it as a dress.
“She had a great figure, so yeah, she definitely caught Prince William’s eye that night of the rest is history.”
Kate’s dress (or skirt) was made by designer Charlotte Todd for her university coursework as part of a project called “The Art of Seduction”.
She told People magazine: “I didn’t know who Kate Middleton was and I didn’t put her in it. It was just pure chance!
“Everyone says that the fashion show was when the romance started, so a small part of me will always be part of royal history.”
And while the dress reportedly cost around £40 to make, it was sold at auction for £95,000 in 2011.
What’s more, a royal expert claimed that Prince William was so desperate to meet Kate that he literally FELL for her - and these were his bashful first words.
