Before becoming the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton had other romances in her youth. One of them was with Rupert Finch, a law student she met at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.
Rupert Finch was an attractive and distinguished young man who was in his senior year when Kate entered college in 2001 to study art history. According to some reports, they dated for less than a year before separating.
What is known about the relationship between Rupert Finch and Kate Middleton?
The relationship between Rupert and Kate was discreet and they were not seen much together in public. Some media speculated that Kate broke up with Rupert because she was attracted to Prince William, who was also studying at St. Andrews and shared a residence with her.
What is certain is that their relationship ended amicably and they remained friends. Finch even attended Kate and William’s wedding in 2011 with his then-girlfriend, Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs, the daughter of the Marquess of Reading.
Lady Natasha is an aristocratic designer and co-founder of the Beulah London brand, which was dedicated to creating ethical and sustainable clothing. Natasha and Rupert married in 2013 and have three daughters: Georgia, Cienna and India Grace.
Finch is currently a successful lawyer and partner in a London firm. He specializes in corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. He has also been involved in some high-profile cases involving celebrities and royalty.
Kate Middleton, for her part, has established herself as one of the most popular and influential figures in the British royal family.
