Kate Middleton Once Received a Proposal From a Boy Named William in Prophetic School Play: Watch the Viral Video

Kate Middleton Prince William(

Proof that things were meant to be! Years before Kate Middleton was swept off her feet by a certain Prince Charming (that would be her now-husband, Prince William), she was told by a fortune teller in a school play that she would one day fall in love with a “rich gentleman.”

Footage from that particular school play, in which Middleton was a young 13 years old, shows the burgeoning theater actress as a student at St. Andrews in Buckhold, England, reciting lines from a play written by one of her teachers titled “Murder in the Red Barn.” In it, Middleton, now 36, plays a damsel in distress, told by a palm reader that the rich and handsome man will fall in love with her and whisk her away.

“It is all I ever hoped for!” she says in the fuzzy video clip, clasping her hands theatrically. “Will he take me away from here?”

“Yes, to London,” the fortune teller responds.

The video then cuts to a different scene, where Middleton is approached by a young man, fellow student Kinsley Glover, named, appropriately, “William.” The pair look visibly flustered onstage as they appear to forget their lines as Glover drops to one knee to propose.

“Having watched that again now, you just sort of think, my God, that’s quite odd, isn’t it?” Glover told ABC News. He had nothing but fond memories of acting alongside Middleton in that student stage production so many years ago.

“She was very nice, and she never had a bad word to say about anybody,” he said. “She’s lovely.”
