Despite now having what many would describe a perfect marriage, Prince William and Kate Middleton's journey has not always been so smooth or easy – especially for Kate.

The Queen reportedly had grave concerns about Middleton before Prince William proposed to her.

The Queen' demand

Her Majesty reportedly believed that Kate needed to have a full-time job in her own right before an engagement was announced.

According to a Vanity Fair report by author and investigative journalist Vicky Ward though, the monarch had put Prince William's girlfriend in a “very difficult position”.

Ms Ward wrote:

“In fact, she [Kate] was quietly working, as her lawyer Gerrard Tyrrell confirms."She has been getting up each morning in Bucklebury, driving to the Party Pieces office in Reading, and, according to Hello! magazine, putting together the catalogues for her parents’ company.“

Middleton's lawyer also confirmed that she was taking a technology course to learn how to make digital catalogs. Vicky Ward added that those were the only jobs Middleton felt safe doing and she didn’t think it was necessary to inform the British media about it.

“If she goes out and works, she’ll be accused of abusing her connections—or of being used.… What can she do? She’s in a very difficult position,”

- Ward said.
