Prince William - William And Kate Remember Their Courtship At University Fundraiser

Prince William and Kate Middleton attended a fundraiser for their alma mater St Andrews University last night (Nov 8), and recalled the time they first met, and their subsequent relationship, to the attendees at the dinner party held in London.

The royal couple attended the charity gala to help raise money for the university's 600th anniversary appeal, the same University where the pair first met and studied together. Will and Kate met with students, staff and alumni before recalling their own time together at the presigious Scottish institute. The appeal the two were helping to raise money for aims to provide financial support for promising students whose finances would make studying at the institute a struggle. The campaign was launched by William last year, during a visit to the University.

Speaking to the crowd, William said that the night was a "very special one" for him, and went on to say: "We love it for its traditions - traditions that lie at the very heart of Scotland's history. We love it because it made us look beyond St Andrews, beyond the borders of Scotland, to the wide world. But perhaps most important of all, we love it for the friendships it has given us."

The pair graduated from the college in 2005, both receiving a 2:1, with William receiving his honours in geography, while Catherine studied art history.
