Miss Middleton was there when William was commissioned as a British Army officer after graduating from Sandhurst military college in 2006.

William was determined that Miss Middleton would not suffer the same media hounding endured by his mother, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997. He appealed through his office for the media to leave her alone.

In 2007 Miss Middleton filed a harassment complaint against a newspaper. She accepted an apology and admission of error from the Daily Mirror.
