Dating Lessons for Singles from The Royal Wedding Courtship of Prince William and Kate Middleton

Dating Lessons for Singles from The Royal Wedding Courtship of Prince William and Kate Middleton

The eyes of the world are upon Prince William and his bride Kate Middleton as they take their nuptial vows at Westminster for all to be their witness.  With Prince William getting married, some single women’s dream of marrying a prince will be put to rest.  Prince William weds a commoner while his despite some common faulty recollections, his mother was of the aristocracy.  Princess Diana had been born Lady Diana Spencer.  He breaks with tradition only last upheld by his father, Prince Charles, in marrying Kate.

However, when any couple is deeply in love and wedding their true love Soul Mate, then every bride is a princess and her groom her prince.

What are the dating love lessons all singles can learn from the wonderful courtship romance of Prince William and Kate Middleton?

Royal Wedding Dating Lesson #1: Build a Foundation of Friendship

The Kate and two of them met while both studying at the University of St. Andrews where the Prince earned his degree, the two of them knew each other and were acquainted for quite some time.  They started as friends.  As any married couple will tell you, romance and passion are imperative to wed.  However, married life requires the sharing of your lives in ways that require you two be friends.  Taking the time to build and nurture a foundation of friendship during your courtship strengthens the love relationship you two hope to share for years to come.

Royal Wedding Dating Lesson #2: Build a Relationship to Withstand Hardship

Even though they had enjoyed a romantic relationship for a time while they were at St. Andrews, in April 2007, they did break up for a time.  In all relationships the couple will face hardships and disagreements.  Can your romance withstand that?  Are you two sufficiently caring of each other and with a shared life alignment and purpose to reunite and rekindle the flames of romance as Prince William and Kate Middleton did?  They were apart only for several months and reunited as a romantic couple before the end of 2007, with an eight year courtship.


Royal Wedding Dating Lesson #3:  Wait to Be Ready to Marry

In 2007 when the couple did break up, the only public comments were that at only 24 years old, Prince William felt it was too soon, that he was too young to marry.  However, by the time Kate Middleton and her Prince wed on April 29, 2011, she will be 29 years old and he 28 years old.  (Prince William was born on June 21, 1982.  He turns 29 years old after their wedding.)  Singles who attend my dating workshops or who have read my articles know I generally suggest a 12-24 month courtship period for couple to know they want to wed.  However, Kate and Prince William were quite young when they met.  Their taking longer than 2 years was certainly a wise direction to take.  A Royal marriage just takes longer to establish.  For yourself, take the time to be sure you want to marry and you’re with the right person for you and to build the foundation for your married relationship.  May yours last for years.

And may Prince William and Kate Middleton enjoy many years ahead of happily married life, complete with the gift of beautiful children.

    Some Royally great tips and insight about what can strengthen a couples union. What a great line, “when any couple is deeply in love and wedding their true love Soul Mate, then every bride is a princess and her groom her prince.”

    I won’t be watching the wedding, not live, anyway …

    Best, Neil

    I liked seeing all the dressy outfits and the hats. We don’t have a lot of reasons to wears hat in the US.

    Great post….build the relationship before you marry….this is why people should wait to get married at least until they have been dating for at least 2 years…..

  • Anne April 29, 2011, 8:10 AM

    The romance of the century. I like the idea of friendship first.

  • Sonya Lenzo April 29, 2011, 11:28 AM

    Certainly good advice for any couple and double good advice for a couple who are going to be in the spot light.

    I didn’t get up out of bed to watch the wedding as I am quite certain the American media will run the wedding ad nauseum as usual. However, I will admit I had the tv on this morning and did witness the “kiss”…..both of them:-)

    And just like at ALL weddings I did get a bit teary-eyed. To me, that state of love is just tearfully beautiful whether you know the couple personally or not.

  • I think this are the best 3 tips for getting married!

  • Kevin Bettencourt April 29, 2011, 2:00 PM

    Really good advice about building a friendship first. Also like that they waited until they were older. Too much development left to jump the gun.

  • Dewayne Chriswell April 29, 2011, 6:31 PM

    Big news, great imagery, a fairy tale come true, but not without the proper foundation. Thanks for the breakdown, April.

    All three points are so well done that I don’t know which is my favorite! I like the make sure you’re ready recommendation…you can be madly in love but marriage involves so much more than that.
    I found my prince…
