If women want to make an impression at a festive occasion, they do not always have to wear dresses and robes to several thousand dollars.
A few hundred pounds or 30 pounds, as in this case – can be more than plenty to get turned up and down on the whole of one's future.
Just ask the next british queen, the duchess of Cambridge, who got the civil name Catherine Middleton at his baptism.
She was one of the young women from the university of St. Andrews, Scotland, who make music and vimsede around on the catwalk at a student fashion show with a charitable purpose at the Fairmont St. Andrew's Hotel 2002.
A young man sat at a table in the candlelight a few feet from the podium, and he did not hide that the 200 pound – approx. 1800 crowns – he had given the advantageous location, was given ’good’.
His name was William, son of prince Charles and lady Diana, and by the time british king.
the Prince was otherwise in the company of his then-girlfriend from university, Carley Massey-Birch, who among the other students went on to be an extraordinarily sexy case with ’a buttocks created by the gods’, but as William saw Kate Middleton on the podium in a transparent creation for the paltry sum of 30 pounds, which revealed both the panties and the bra, he eyes up a side of his future wife, he had not noticed earlier.
– Wow, Kate is hot, he noticed over the pounding music to his friend and studiekammeraten Fergus Boyd, who has since become godfather to William and Kate's eldest son, prince George.

’A somewhat peculiar comment, since Kate was already known at St. Andrews as ’beautiful Kate’, adds the Mail On Sunday, who has written about the case.
How had William so far not seen her. They knew each other at university, but the prince considered her more as a ’faithful and considerate’ friend, who had helped him to overcome the first, ’miserable’ semester at school, as he had done with serious considerations of dropping.
Helped by a couple of drink went to William for the sassy fashion show with underwear as the theme of Kate and complimented her for opvisningen. Some believe, he tried to kiss her hand. Other, he put the lips to a more amourøst deeply’.

Anyway, dismissed Kate with him. She was even in the company of a girlfriend, law student Rupert Finch.
But not for long. In the course of a few weeks, they had both dropped their respective lovers, and the platonic friendship was turned into an actual relationship.
mutual friends agree that it's probably just a matter of time before they had found together under all circumstances, but the royal romance came surely in extra revolutions of the student party, where Kate's daring attire got him to see her in a completely different light.
With Kate shared the William addition, the interest for sports and outdoor activities, and so they had both a ’naughty sense of humor’, as a fellow student put it.
First and foremost, felt William, however, that he could rely on Kate. Together with Fergus Boyd and another friend, they moved into a rented house in the centre of St. Andrews.
Over to the public was the relationship, however, tried kept secret. The left rarely in the house together, and they stuck to the ’no holden hand’rule when they were out.

Indoor together with the most reliable friends was nothing, however, kept hidden.
It was also not to the outside world in the long run.
In their third year at the school they were moved to a more private place outside the city, which they had rented from a friend of the royal family, sir Henry Cheape.
While the press is kept from reporting on Williams's whereabouts at school and in the town of St. Andrews, so were very different, when he went on various vacations. And on a ski vacation in april 2004, the photographers did not fail to notice how loving William and Kate behaved with each other.
Then there was the story out. Standard-reply ’just good friends’ held like no longer.
the Relationship was however threatened later in the summer. William laid holiday plans that involved Kate. Stories at the time thought to know, that she presented him several ultimatummer, but it dismissed her friends a short time ago.
It was Kate too cool to be able to find in the states.
instead, she understand, that she was considering to move for themselves in a rented apartment in the city, as she had seen on together with a friend, Bryony Daniels.
the Strategy succeeded. William said, be-be, and they were back under the same roof, while they took a hole of their fourth year at the university.
--------- SPLIT ELEMENT ---------Exchange for wedding invitation
Kate Middleton's attention-grabbing dress at the student-gallaen was designed by Charlotte Todd, and according to her, it was quite the coincidence that it landed on the coming queen.
- I did not know who Kate Middleton was, and I gave her it not. It was a pure coincidence.
- I had made it as a skirt, but the other gave Kate the at, and she used it as a dress. Had it not been transparent, would William might not have noticed her, the designer, who later left the profession, said.
Charlotte todd's creation was for several years stored away in mother's house, but she was aware of its historical significance, as William and Kate announced their engagement in november 2010.
- the Dress is a part of fashion history - the moment when William was in love with Kate. It makes me really proud. The image has been used so many times over the years, and I have always wondered if Kate is embarrassed about it, or if she likes it.
the Designer has said that she has been reluctant to part with the dress. She would only give it to Kate Middleton - ’perhaps in exchange for an invitation to the wedding.’
the Invitation never came. So put Charlotte Todd, the on the auction. To his amazement sounded the hammer price 78,000 pounds - approx. 625.000 euros.
