Dating a prince seems awful TBH.
Kate Middleton dated Prince William for ten years
before they
tied the knot, and the Duchess of Cambridge dealt with a lot during
that time. Like her sister-in-law, Meghan Markle, Middleton was
given nasty nicknames
from the press. The future
Crowned King also had a wandering eye
. One of the most
frightening things that Middleton had to deal with was constant
harassment from the paparazzi and the press.

When the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge began dating during their
first year at St. Andrews University, they tried to keep their
romance on the down low. The
prince even ignored Kate at his 21st birthday party
which
obviously pissed her off. When they finally went public with their
relationship, it was not pretty. Since the couple was out of
college by the time their relationship was widely known–the
duchess was no longer protected within the walls of the University.
The press found out where she lived (her exact address), where she
worked, and all of the places she frequented. From then on, no
matter where she went, with or without Wils, she was followed and
photographed.

With the tragic death of his mother, Princess Diana in 1997,
Prince William had seen first hand how ruthless and reckless the
press could be. After all, the Princess of Wales died in a car
crash while trying to flee from the paparazzi. In her book, Kate:
The Future Queen, royal expert and biographer Katie Nicholl
explained, “William was aware of the situation and anxious about
it. He had seen firsthand how his mother had been harassed by the
paparazzi and was
determined that Kate not be subjected to the same
treatment
.”

To try and protect his lady, William teamed up with The Palace
to create a panic button of sorts. Apparently, the prince insisted
that The Palace create a special hotline for Kate when she found
herself panicking. A senior press aide told Nicholl,

We had been introduced to Kate early on, and we were instructed
from the outset to give her every support possible, She was
obviously the subject of a lot of press interest and intrusion from
the paparazzi. William said we had a duty of care to her and her
family and so we advised her on how to deal with the cameras. We
told her to smile at the photographers so that there would be a
better picture. She was given advice on how to manage the media,
and we were there to support her if there was a crisis.

Whew–better Kate and Meghan than us because we could
never.
