With all this buzz about the Duchess of Cambridge's near due date, it's hard to believe the royal couple at one point entered splitsville.
New details from the book Kate by Michael O’Mara, notes the couple experienced heartbreak and later called it quits in March 2007, according to the Daily Mail.
Prince William, who was caught in the middle of drinking and partying with "glamorous half-naked girls," was one reason the couple decided to part ways.
Besides the dramatic headlines, the book also goes into details about what each of them did in their time off. Kate, for example, kept herself busy during the breakup by attending art exhibits for her friends and travelling with her mom, while the Duke of Cambridge focused on charities.
