Laura Warshauer, who lived with William and Kate at St Andrew’s University, has released a song about the beginning of their love story. It is yours to download now from iTunes and there is an album to follow.
The most commonly held belief about the start of Prince William’s attraction to Kate Middleton was when she strutted down the catwalk in a sheer dress. But according to Warshauer, who should know because she was in halls of residence with the couple, Kate Middleton had won Prince William’s affections months earlier when he paid £200 for her during a ‘slave’ auction at a Harry Potter-themed party.
This fascinating new insight into the budding royal romance comes from a former housemate of the couple, who is releasing a song about her memories of the pair as students.
Laura Warshauer lived with the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in St Salvator’s Hall during their first year at St Andrews University, and watched the couple fall in love.
Her song is called “To Will and Kate, Meet Me at Exit 109.” The song portrays a fun-loving couple who joined in with a huge foam fight in the quad, drank wine out of plastic cups and sat on the floor to eat lasagna with their fellow students.
Miss Warshauer is now based in Los Angeles. She reveals the couple’s instant chemistry well before the March 2002 charity fashion show when William saw Kate modeling a see-through slip and described her as “hot.”
Miss Warshauer revealed how keen Prince William was to win Kate as his slave for the day in a charity auction during the couple’s first year at St. Andrew’s. She also gave an insight into the ease of their relationship with each other, even in the early days before they were officially dating.
“I remember a college party with Will and Kate very early on during freshman year. A girl went over to Will and wouldn’t leave him alone. She was trying to entice him, and was being relentless. He was being very polite to her, but at the same time, it was obvious he wished she would leave him alone.”
While others struggled with the awkward situation, Kate knew exactly what to do. She “walked up to Will in the most natural way and put her arms around him. It gave Will the opportunity to turn to the other girl and say, “I’m sorry, I have a girlfriend,” while gesturing towards Kate.”
That natural poise and grace will help Kate settle into her new life as a Princess. The video for the song “To Will and Kate, Meet Me at Exit 109” shows several pictures of the couple together.
Miss Warshauer’s single is out now on iTunes. Her album, “The Pink Chariot Mixtape,” will be released on June 14.
