According to Express.co.uk, Prince William felt 'suffocated' by Kate, even telling his group of friends 'I'm free' when he broke it off with his future wife.
To rub salt in the wound, William then went on a drunken spree through London's nightclubs, where a now infamous photo made the rounds of the future King of England dancing on a podium next to a stunning Brazilia lass.
According to newly unearthed reports, William's behaviour didn't go unchecked by Kate who royally told her ex-boyfriend off for 'making her look bad'.
“It was the first such warning she had dished out over the course of their four-and-a-half-year-relationship," a close friend of the Duchess told the Daily Mail.
“Kate had had enough and words were exchanged.
“‘Kate told William that he was making her look bad."
The friend then revealed Kate gave her ex a stern ultimatum; shape up or else!
"She gave him an ultimatum and told him that over the time he behaved like that in public he was cheapening her image as well as his own.
“She told him she wasn’t prepared to be treated like a doormat and that his carefree behaviour was affecting her image."
Luckily for us, William realised he had made a huge mistake fairly quickly, rekindling his romance with Kate that same year.
