THE Queen offered Prince William some last ditch advice that stopped him dumping Kate Middleton, it has been claimed.
Back in the early days of their relationship in 2006, William are Kate are said to have gone through a “rocky patch” and a temporary break-up.
So confused about what to do, Prince William gathered the Queen and Prince Charles together over Christmas to seek their advice, according to royal expert and author Katie Nicholl.
The Queen is said to have made it clear that she was disappointed that William and Kate had broken up and advised William “not to hurry into” making a permanent decision on the relationship.
While Kate was famously spotted hitting the town on several nights out in London during the break-up, the pair had rekindled their romance by July 2007, getting engaged three years later.

The Crown to include 'keystone moment' of Diana's Bashir interview
The fifth series of Netflix drama The Crown will dramatise the headline-making 1995 Panorama interview with Diana, Princess of Wales, according to reports.
That interview, conducted by then-BBC journalist Martin Bashir, made global headlines as the princess spoke openly about her marriage to the Prince of Wales, famously telling Bashir “there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded”.
An insider said: “The Crown's creators see the interview as the keystone moment in series five.
“To the writers, the stormy marriage between Charles and Di led up to her outpouring on Panorama, and the aftermath of that decision defined her final months.
“They are making a huge investment in that. The Crown has a track record of delving into areas of the Royal Family's history they'd rather be left alone.”
