Did Kate Middleton really meet Princess Diana: media fact-check a scene from the show

A scene about Princess Diana's first meeting with Kate Middleton was invented in the TV series "The Crown"

Recently, the last 6th season of the TV series"The Crown" was released, in one scene of which, as a teenager, Princess Kate Middleton met her future husband Prince William and Princess Diana of Wales. This episode turned out to be fake. The royal family told us when they actually met for the first time and whether Kate had ever met Princess Diana.

In particular, the creators of the series did not invent this moment alone, People writes. Some episodes of the last season even made fans surprised by the dramatic change in facts.

In episode 7 of season 6, the series takes viewers back to December 1996. In the scene, Diana sells The Big Issue magazines for charity with her son Prince William. Young Kate and her mother Carol Middleton were on a Christmas shopping spree and the girl stopped to buy one issue from Princess Diana. When Kate was paying for the magazine, the Princess of Wales asked her name before asking her son to thank her for the purchase. The scene ended with a dreamy Kate cutting out William's magazine photos to hang on the wall in her room.

Have Kate Middleton and Princess Diana ever met?

Unfortunately, Middleton has never spoken to Princess Diana, People writes. After his royal wedding to Kate in 2011, William recalled how much he wished his mother had been there on such an important day for him. It should be noted that Princess Diana of Wales died in a car accident in 1997.

"I think she... would have loved this day and I hope she would have been proud. I am just very sad that she will never have the chance to meet Kate," Prince William said after his wedding. 

Many years later, Middleton also recalled that she had never met Princess Diana, People writes.

"Unfortunately, I never had the chance to meet her," Kate reflected on how Diana would have been a wonderful grandmother to her and William's three children. We miss her every day."

Posters with Prince William on Kate Middleton's wall

For many years, rumors have been circulating about Kate Middleton's love for Prince William since she was a teenager. It was even written about in the book Kate: The Future Queen. At that time, royal expert and biographer Katie Nicholl wrote, according to Kate's friend Jessica Hay, that she was deeply in love with William as a teenager and had posters of him hanging in her room.

However, in an interview about her engagement to the prince, Kate denied these rumors: "There is an opinion that you had his picture on the wall," the interviewer asked, to which the princess replied: "No, I had a guy named Levi on my wall, not a picture of William. I'm sorry!"

In particular, the royal couple did not meet in December 1996 while doing charity work, but a little later. In 2001, while studying at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, they became friends, and later their friendship grew into love.
