Upon entering the University of St. Andrews, the same place where she met her future husband, Kate began dating Rupert Finch. He was a law student who was already about to graduate, the relationship was short as it lasted less than a year.
Finch is a well-known lawyer in London. As a curious fact he is also linked to royalty as he married Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs, who is the daughter of the Marquess of Reading and they have three children.
The best known relationship of the princess, and somewhat controversial, is that of Henry Ropner. Both had an affair when Kate broke up with Prince William, something that did not please the heir at all because Ropner was his friend since they met at Eton College.
According to the press, the rivalry between them was evident since the son of King Charles had a relationship with an ex-girlfriend of Henry.
After all, Henry married Natasha Sinclair and they have children. Apparently they made peace because they were captured at a wedding of a mutual friend held in 2012.
