It's common knowledge among royal fans that William and Kate met each other at the University of St. Andrews.

According to the book Kate: The Future Queen, royal biographer Katie Nicholl claims that it was the very first time the two had the encounter. 

It was the first time Kate had set her eyes on the young prince, but certainly not the last.

Oh my, it does sound like a real fairytale? We honestly didn't know they had met each other at such an early age.

But their relationship was on the rocks

Yes, indeed. Even though they are happily married now and parents of three amazing children, their young love was going on and off. The couple decided to split in 2007 because William "didn't show much attention."
