The Waiting Game - we can focus on all their dynamic pre-engagement, the break ups, the brief happy periods and also have a central location for vintage Waity pictures and the two seconds where Seabiscuit was sort of attractive.

Thank you both Kiki and Thomas for this thread! Here are a couple of articles (full on the respective links) on the 2007 break-up.

Prince William splits from Kate (April/2007):

"He has said in the past that he is too young to get married.
"But I am led to believe that there is no-one else involved and that it is a decision they have come to mutually."
Duncan Larcombe, the Sun's royal correspondent, told BBC Five Live: "The last person on earth who's going to be pressured by newspaper columnists and television chat shows to get married is Prince William."

From BBC News

The Break-Up (April 14 2007):

Kate's next boyfriend can expect paparazzi on his doorstep, but it is William's next love affair that will provide the greatest excitement. Sources have told The Observer that news of who she is will break sooner rather than later: 'He broke up with Kate because he's met someone else who's turned his head,' one source said. 'She's from a decent background but is very naughty and he finds her much more exciting.'
The Sun quoted a close friend as saying: 'As far as Kate is concerned, William simply hasn't been paying her enough attention. She is stuck in London while he is living in an officer's mess in Dorset. Kate feels hugely frustrated that their relationship just seems to be going backwards at a rate of knots.'

From The Guardian.

Prince William ended it by phone (April 16 2007):

The colleague disclosed: "Around the middle of the day, she was pacing the car park outside the office on her mobile.
"A few people noticed because it's a pretty unusual thing to do. She'd deliberately gone outside to take the call because she didn't want to be overheard.
"Kate was walking up and down and looking upset as if she was having an argument. But she didn't cry. Word went round that it was William and they were having problems. Now it's clear what it was all about.
"When she came back to the office she didn't say a thing and disappeared for the rest of the day. She hasn't been back to work since.
"When someone asked where she was, they were told she was sick. Yet she hasn't been marked sick in the book.

Is the article referring to Isabella? From a decent background but naughty? Who is this mystery woman? So that's why waity had a serious makeover during the break up and why she behaves as she does. To keep Willy's interest.......that doesn't appear to be working though

As well as dumping his long-term girlfriend by phone while she was at work, more examples of William's gentlemanly behaviour:

Quote
It seems that Prince William himself reacted to his reported breakup with his longtime girlfriend Kate Middleton with a night out on the town Saturday night in London.
 
The prince reportedly ran up a $9,000 bar bill at a nightclub, where he allegedly yelled, "I'm free."
 
But today in Britain, there is still a great amount of attention about why and what went wrong.
 
To many British people, the split came as a huge surprise.

"I saw Kate as looking so confident in her role," Majesty magazine editor-in-chief Ingrid Seward told "Good Morning America Weekend Edition." "She looked the cat that had stole[n] the cream."
 
Few really know the reason for the reported split, but that has not stopped the Sunday newspapers in London from staking their claim to the "truth," with claims that Prince William felt the fun had gone out of their relationship. Some reports mentioned a "make or break" decision that William was asked to make.
 
According to those reports, at a meeting 10 days ago, senior royals told him he should either marry Middleton if he is ready to commit or let her get on with her life.

So many gems:

Quote
Amid the clatter of small talk and social niceties, it was a well-meaning attempt to rally a young girl's spirits: "Keep your chin up. Don't let them get you down. You'll be fine."

But when Tara Palmer-Tompkinson delivered these words of wisdom to Kate Middleton at a fashionable book launch, what was striking was not the kindness of the older woman's words but how superfluous they appeared.

For, since splitting from Prince William, Kate Middleton seems to have had very little trouble in keeping either her chin, or her profile, high.

Indeed it has become a much remarked oddity of Kate and Prince William's break-up that, in the weeks since her apparent heartbreak, she has never looked better...or happier.

Far from appearing shattered by the very public end of a romance that many - including Kate herself - predicted would end in marriage, Kate sans William is cutting a frankly far sexier figure.

Her hair is shinier, her skin more tanned and her dress sense more youthful than during her tweedy William days.

Far too dignified to accept the vast sums on offer for a royal 'kiss and tell,' she has, The Mail on Sunday has learned, drawn on the support and advice of a trusted few.

And, in the process, one figure has emerged above all as key among the newly single Kate's loyal coterie: her younger sister Pippa.

Scroll down for more...

At 22, Pippa is three years junior to - and 4in shorter than - her more famous sibling but she has had an enormous impact on the emergence of this increasingly sleek and confident Kate.

She is, according to those who know her best, more sassy than Kate, more direct and, tantalisingly, less discreet.

And though these days she may pass largely unrecognised she is unlikely to do so for long.

After all, it was Pippa who joined Kate at the launch of Simon Sebag Montefiore's book on Stalin at Asprey's, Pippa whose hand Kate held as she left trendy London nightclub Boujis at three in the morning four days later, Pippa who will be at Kate's side when the girls attend the Kuoni World Class Cup Polo at Hurtwood Park, West Sussex - a tournament at which both Prince Harry and Charles have played.

In the weeks since her split from William, Kate has gleaned style advice from an executive at Vogue, discussed strategies for dealing with the media from Tatler editor Geordie Greig and, fascinatingly, turned to Guy Pelly, one of William's best friends, for entrance to some of London's coolest clubs. But it is Pippa who has been her ever present consort.

For where Kate's entree into high society was as the prettier 'add-on' to a powerful partner, her staying power may owe much to establishing herself in another, formidable, double act.

And according to one well placed source: "Kate and Pippa have already been dubbed The Wisteria Sisters - they're highly decorative, terribly fragrant and have a ferocious ability to climb.

"Pippa has just graduated in English from Edinburgh University and while other students are taking advantage of the last weeks of term to lie around in the meadows, have late breakfasts and long lunches and generally do very little, Pippa couldn't wait to get down to Kate and to London.

"She'll go back for the graduation ball at the end of June but it's clear that Kate is the key to unlocking a new social life for Pippa and Pippa is there to support Kate.

"So many doors were opened to Kate when she was with William and she's certainly not going to let them close now."

Certainly Pippa seems more than up to the task of putting a well-shod foot in the way of any door that threatens to shut now that Kate and William are no longer together.

According to one university friend: "As soon as Pippa arrived at Edinburgh, she was assiduous about joining the right social circle.

"At Edinburgh, the aristo crowd are divided into two social sets - one crowd who go to London for the weekend and are really into partying and hard drinking and the other who are more staid and go off to each others' country houses for weekends.

"Pippa joined the country set. She was very charming about it but quite ruthless in cultivating the "right" friends.

"If she found out that someone had impressive social credentials - the right title, standing, connections - she would immediately pay them a lot of attention where before she wouldn't have shown the least interest.

"She would leave notes in the pigeonholes of people she coveted as friends, desperate to arrange a time or date to meet.

"She was always well turned out to the point of being prim, always conscious of projecting the "right" image and, if she heard of other girls' "naughty" behaviour - too much drinking or partying or risque behaviour - she'd pull a face like there was a bad taste in her mouth."

Like Kate, Pippa attended Marlborough and, like Kate, her university ascent into the social elite was rapid. By the end of her university days, she could count Ted Innes-Ker and George Percy as flatmates - the sons of the Dukes of Roxburghe and Northumberland respectively.

And her boyfriend, who graduated two years before her, is JJ Jardine Patterson, an Eton friend of Edward and George and scion of a highly successful Hong Kong banking family.

"She met JJ through the boys," a friend said. "It really wasn't the family millions that attracted her to him but the social cachet."

Someone else who has met Pippa on many occasions recalled her as: "A charming girl who hung out with absolute toffs, most of whom are named after counties.

"She is incredibly well mannered and well-brought up. At dinner she always makes sure to speak to the person seated to her left and right.

"She has a lovely figure, much better than Kate's really. She's a very keen and aggressive tennis player. A mother's dream, in many respects.

"But she makes no secret at all of being very socially ambitious - almost aggressively so. She wants power and money."

Which explains perhaps, in part, the mixed feelings that Pippa has expressed to friends since her big sister split from her famous boyfriend.

According to one: "Pippa absolutely loved the fact that Kate dated William because of the cachet it brought but she's also quite pleased Kate's single again.

"She sometimes felt that her mum and dad tended to put Kate first, above her and her brother James, when she was dating William simply because of the extra responsibilities and practical considerations that went with that.

"And she was a little bit jealous that her sister was dating the future King of England.

"It didn't help that James, who's also at Edinburgh, would go around saying, "My sister's going to be the Queen of England." He can be very indiscreet.

"Also, Pippa's glad to "get her sister back". The two are very close and she never got to spend much time with Kate when she dated William. Kate would always put William first."


Indeed, Kate put William before all other considerations - personal and professional.

It is worth noting that, since their split, she has been promoted from assistant accessories buyer to accessories buyer for High Street store Jigsaw.

Pippa is similarly bright, but she is yet to fall upon a career path of her own. She enjoys travel and writing and has expressed an interest in journalism.

However, such thoughts are not foremost in the girls' minds this summer.

Instead, Pippa has moved into the Chelsea home that the girls' parents Carole and Michael bought for Kate and, according to a friend: "The two of them are enjoying being quite girlie together.

They have a mobile tanner who comes round and does their spray-on tan. They love shopping on the Kings Road.

They get ballet pumps at French Sole and Pippa loves Chloe clothes and has her hair done in Richard Ward's VIP section just like Kate.

"Kate gets sent a lot of free clothes and gifts and Pippa is very keen to get in on the action as far as that's concerned. She's happy to go along to parties and events on Kate's coat-tails."

Certainly there has been no shortage of invitations. On Wednesday, the girls will be at Mahiki - a favourite haunt of Prince William and the site of his infamous I'm Free! 'celebration' following his split from Kate.

The marketing for the club is looked after by Guy Pelly and it is Guy who is believed to have invited Kate and Pippa to Wednesday's Johnny Cash-themed party.

Kate and Pippa have also been invited to Richard Branson's pre-Wimbledon party - and have received invitations to the members' enclosure for the tournament.

They are on the guest list for Royal Ascot - though whether or not they will venture towards the Royal Enclosure remains to be seen - and have been invited to the Cartier Polo at Windsor Great Park on the last Sunday of July.

Ahead of them both lies the tantalising prospect of a summer of sisterly fun - with a social agenda writ large.

One close friend says: "Obviously, Kate and William aren't together any more but they have an ongoing arrangement. They will go to a couple of things together - things that were planned before they split and which William will honour.

It seems a bit of a habit among that set not to entirely sever relationships. There's rarely a clean break."

As we reported last week, William will go to the wedding of Kate's cousin on July 21. It is understood that they will also spend a weekend together in William's cottage in Balmoral in August.

Being in such close proximity to the man she once hoped to marry - and being so as 'just friends' - must be a prospect that Kate regards with profoundly mixed feelings.

However glossy her image and admirable her poise, there are, in the weight she has shed and the cigarettes she has started smoking again, clues to the effort required in presenting a positive face to the world she knows is watching still.
 
The importance of Pippa's place at Kate's side right now cannot, friends say, be underestimated.

"Pippa and Kate really are very close," says one. "Sure, they have a very like-minded approach to life and if Kate is leaning on Pippa at the moment who can blame her?

"The whole Middleton family were thinking of holidaying in Scotland this year but Kate felt it was too much of a thorny reminder of the last time that they were all together in Scotland, earlier this year, when they rented a great big house in Perthshire and waited for William to show up for New Year and he never did.

"Instead, they're looking at renting some fabulous villa in Tuscany or Umbria for a few weeks in August at the end of the summer.

"And goodness, I'd have thought by the time they reach August, the girls will need a break."

That article explains a lot. So, why didn't William show up for New Year's in Scotland?  I always knew Carole favored Kate over her other kids, but as I said, seems odd, because Pippa has more sparkle.

From 2006 - developing Kate's 'look':

Quote
How Kate Middleton went from frump to fabulous

When a 21-year-old Kate Middleton sashayed confidently down the catwalk dressed in only her underwear for a student fashion show, she could never have imagined that one day, editors of glossy magazines would be clamouring to get her on their pages and fashion designers would be desperate for her to wear their clothes.

With her mane of chestnut hair, her pretty - but hardly striking - face, and slim, girlish figure, she even caught the eye of several modelling agencies. But, with a fine arts degree to complete, she was not interested in cultivating a catwalk career.

She carried on with her studies - and her student wardrobe of jeans, jackets and Ugg or cowgirl boots. Four years on and thoroughly immersed in royal life, Kate's 'look' has changed dramatically in recent months.

With all this grooming and a sudden interest in expensive dresses, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this was a girl preparing for her wedding day.

So how has she done it? With, we can reveal, the help of some of the slickest stylists in the business. Here, we detail 'Team Kate':

THE PANEL OF ADVISERS

While most young girls take their inspiration from Kate Moss and Sienna Miller, the biggest influence on Kate's style has, until recently, been her mother, Carole. Mother's and daughter's neatly tailored jackets and silk neck scarf combos have been largely interchangeable and both are partial to the odd kitten-heeled shoe.

It's a look that most girls of Kate's age would eschew, but Kate is terrified of making a fashion faux pas and has chosen to play 'safe' with her wardrobe.

Conservative dresser

But then, even as a schoolgirl, friends recall Kate was always an incredibly conservative dresser. Gemma Williamson, a fellow pupil at Marlborough School, remembers: "Kate never wore particularly fashionable or revealing clothes — just jeans and jumpers with discreet pearl earrings and lots of bangles.

"Most of the girls at school would dress quite tartily to attract the boys, but not Kate. She couldn't have been less obvious — she hardly even wore any make-up."

In recent weeks she has, with the reassurance of Leesa Whisker, dressed a little more excitingly, but last week, at a party to launch The Shop at Bluebird restaurant, she resorted to her old staples of flowery skirt and kitten heel shoe combo.

She was there in support of the shop's owners, John and Belle Robinson, who have become recent friends and who, as owners of the Jigsaw and Kew clothing chains, are champions of this particular look. Her penchant for floral skirts and dresses with fitted white blouses and frilled pastel-coloured cardigans and jackets is heavily influenced by them.

THE SECRET SHOPPER

Irish-born Leesa Whisker is the utterly discreet woman in charge of Kate's new look. Based in London's smart Holland Park, Whisker - who worked as a freelance fashion stylist for a broadsheet newspaper before setting up her own image consultancy three years ago - has become one of the key figures involved in grooming Kate for a more active role in royal life.

Her initial £500 consultation involved a one-to-one meeting with Whisker to establish which styles, colours, shapes and fabrics suit her.

Then the poor girl endured a Susannah-and-Trinny style wardrobe elimination process whereupon Ms Whisker guided Ms Middleton to keep certain items and get rid of others. Tactfully, Whisker gave Kate suggestions on how best to mix and match the clothes she already owned while also suggesting new additions.

Since then Ms Whisker has been a regular visitor to Kate's London apartment. Charging £400 a day as a personal shopper, she brings a rail of clothes for Kate to try.

Indeed, it was on a recent visit that Kate tried and fell in love with the turquoise BCBG dress that she wore to such stunning effect at a black-tie charity boxing event to support William's close friend Hugh van Cutsem earlier this month.

SHOPAHOLIC

Kate spends at least a day a week shopping on London's King's Road - and she nearly always returns home with at least one bag full of goodies.

As well as Jigsaw and Kew, which have become staples, Kate also likes Whistles, LK Bennett and Crew Clothing, shops that specialise in classically elegant clothes — cashmere cardigans, floral skirts and dresses, boot-cut jeans and tailored suits.

The closest Kate has come to couture are the bespoke tailored coats and jackets from Katherine Hooker on the Fulham Road which sell from £425. Kate wore one of Hooker's long-line fawn coats at the Cheltenham Gold Cup this year, which she controversially accessorised with a mink fur hat.

"Kate has been coming to us for just under a year," says Hooker, whose other clients include Jerry Hall and Lizzie Jagger. "Kate is self-assured, very down-to-earth and normal," she continues.

"We met when she saw my stand at the Spirit Of Christmas fair at Olympia last year and approached me about my designs."

Ms Hooker is a brave woman — most designers are so afraid of ruining their fledgling relationship with the young Princess-in-waiting that they remain royally discreet.

Little wonder, as Kate's extremely protective

mother has been known to ring up vendors if items have appeared about her daughter in the newspapers, berating them for their lack of discretion and urging them to be a little more circumspect in future.

RED CARPET GLAMOUR

Stealing the show at the charity boxing event earlier this month in her high-octane turquoise evening gown, this was Kate's first public outing in full-on, red-carpet glamour mode. In a plunge-front jersey dress, she gained more column inches than ever before.

Fashion editors went into a frenzy trying to find out who the dress was by. As such there was only speculation — most assumed that the stunning turquoise dress was a one-off creation by British designers such as Amanda Wakeley or Ben de Lisi. In fact it was by US designer BCBG Max Azria — bought in Harvey Nichols for a relatively modest sum of £354.

This dress was a departure for Kate, not simply for the fact that it was more of a showstopper than anything she had worn before, but also for the fact that it was not created by one of her trusted English fashion labels. She was also seen buying a job lot of slinky evening dresses in the sale at Australian designer Colette Dinnigan in January, which included a couple of daringly low-cut dresses similar to the BCBG number in ruby red and white. Kate may be developing an eye for high fashion, but she still likes a bargain.

MAKE-UP, HAIR AND HANDS

Make-up: Komal Singh - a top international make-up artist represented by the high-end fashion agency Untitled Management — has recently taken Kate on as a client.

Singh has been encouraging Kate, who traditionally favours a 'natural' look, to wear more makeup. Hence the recent additions of cheekbone-defining bronzers and more fashionable charcoal eyes.

Hair: When it comes to her locks, Kate remains strictly a no-fuss kind of girl. Whatever the occasion, her hair is loose and natural. Although she may appear low maintenance, she actually spends £105 every six weeks for her regular appointments with celebrity hairdresser Richard Ward.

The man who also tends to the tresses of Tara Palmer Tomkinson, Lady Isabella Hervey and Lisa Snowdon has been cutting Kate's hair since early last year.

Hands: As any girl waiting for a diamond ring would know, beautifully manicured hands are a must. Kate pays £55 for a manicure and pedicure when she visits the Richard Ward salon in Sloane Square.

BAGS, SHOES AND CLOTHES

No flashy designer handbags from Dior, Chanel or Fendi, instead she carries understated shopper bags by Longchamp costing a mere £46.

On her recent holiday to Mustique with William, Kate — who flew out alone in economy class on British Airways - looked remarkably elegant in a Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress and cool linen jacket with flat white leather pumps from LK Bennett, carrying a £115 green Brics leather bag - favoured by girls who love classy luggage but can't quite afford Mulberry or Louis Vuitton.

Waity Kaity working at Jigsaw:





September 2007:

Quote
Now that her romance with Prince William is firmly back on, she is turning her attentions to her career.

So serious is she about her new career plan that Kate, who likes to photograph abstract subjects rather than people, has already started looking at some of the best galleries in London to exhibit her work.

"Kate has become increasingly frustrated working at Jigsaw," says a friend.

"She really wants to move and is seriously thinking about a career in photography. She loves cameras and has a great eye. She has already started putting an exhibition of her work together."


Quote
It was initially thought that Carole Middleton had used her friendship with Belle to organise a job for Kate. In fact, it was Kate herself who secured the position. Belle said: "Then she rang me up one day and said: 'Could I come and talk to you about work?'" So far from being a familiar person at the Middleton's home, Oak Acre in Bucklebury Berkshire, Belle revealed that she hardly knew Carole and Michael, having only met them 4 times. She said: "A lot of people have distorted it to say we're friends with her parents but I've only met them four times."

The Jigsaw owner told This Is London: "She genuinely wanted a job but she needed an element of flexibility to continue the relationship with a very high-profile man and a life that she can't dictate. She's going to be dictated to when she's needed and not needed."

A workmate's view from the DM:

Quote
Kate is a nice enough girl but she was never what you might call committed to the job. She never worked full-time and appeared to take an inordinate amount of time off to go jetting round the world with her boyfriend. It certainly rubbed a few people here up the wrong way. To be told she would be resting for a while 'looking at other things' didn't exactly come as a surprise. She has always been treated as a special case.

She quite later in 2007 after being dumped by William.

She then works at Party Pieces on and off until she leaves that to prepare for the wedding of the century.

She even gets pictured on the website:
