Prince William's four-year stay at St. Andrews would draw the interest of the world's media. To protect the Prince, an agreement was made banning camera crews and pres except on selected occasion meaning Will, as he was known, could live university life much like any other student.
But, a year into his studie Prince William was finding it hard to settle in his art history course, the same course as his friend Kate Middleton. It's said that Kate's persuasive character made William stay, and he switched to geography. Late in their first year, the friends moved into a house-share together, but not before William attended a student fashion show, where Kate was revealed in a new light.
Jules Knight (William's Fellow Student): I think that was the moment when everyone realised how beautiful she was. There was this lovely, unassuming girl, who also had a sexy side as well, and she got up there and she flaunted her stuff and looked fantastic.
Geordie Greig (Editor): All her contemporaries at St. Andrews saw her as the most attractive girl there.
By now their friendship was growing closer, and they were getting to know one another, warts and all.
