Netflix shows a spicy photo of Kate Middleton from the final season of The Crown
The photos were posted on the show's official Instagram page. One of the shots especially caught the eye of the show's fans: it depicts the Princess of Wales, played by actress Meg Bellamy, in a legendary transparent dress. The creators of the series decided to recreate this moment for a reason, as it is said that it was then that young William fell in love with his future wife.
Before Catherine, Princess of Wales, there was Kate Middleton, a 19-year-old student at St. Andrews College. It is known that she and Prince William first met in 2001, but it was her fashion show at a charity fashion show that symbolized the beginning of their relationship, CR writes.
In 2002, Middleton took to the university catwalk in a transparent black and gold silk dress with turquoise stripes. It was actually a skirt, but Kate decided to wear it differently.
The designer Charlotte Todd, who created the image, created it as part of her university coursework. She told People that the theme was "The Art of Seduction."
According to the story, William took a seat in the front row. As Kate walked down the runway, William turned to his friend Fergus Boyd and whispered: "Wow, Fergus, Kate is so cool!".
A friend of the couple, Pat Duncan, confirmed that it was the sheer dress that caught William's attention. "It was the end of their freshman year. There were a lot of attractive girls there," he said. "She was wearing a very bold sheer dress that looked like a stocking," Duncan said.
Although Todd has never met the royal family, she said she was happy to play at least a small part in Kate's upcoming marriage to William. The seductive image, which cost less than $50 to make, was later sold at auction in 2011, the year of William and Kate's wedding, for $125 thousand.
