Who is Rupert Finch? The man Kate Middleton dated before Prince William

Who is Rupert Finch? The man Kate Middleton dated before Prince William

Before dating Prince William back in her university dates, it has been revealed Kate dated someone else before William. 

His name was Rupert Finch.

She met both men whilst she was studying at St Andrews University in 2001, which is when Finch was studying his final year of law. The pair dated for less than a year before she met Prince William and the rest is history as we know it.

Prince William and Duchess Kate were friends for a year before deciding to date, as the duo lived doors apart in student accommodation at St Andrews.

Don’t feel too bad for Finch though, he’s happily married to the Marquess of Reading’s daughter, Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs. He’s also a solicitor.

When Duchess Kate and Prince William tied the knot in 2011, there was an invitation extended to Finch and his then-girlfriend Lady Natasha, but it’s unclear whether or not the duo attended the wedding according to the UK Telegraph.

Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs is the co-founder of luxury fashion brand Beulah London, which Duchess Kate is regularly seen wearing. The brand is a socially conscious brand that helps vulnerable women gain employment through the profits of their clothing.

Rufus shared a photo of Duchess Kate wearing an olive-green midi-dress from the company, proving there’s no bad blood between the couples at all.
