Kate Middleton will have waited many years before her prince William decides to put the ring on her finger. If this lack of enthusiasm had led to the couple breaking up in 2007, the duo formed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge could simply never have existed!

After several years of romance enjoying the nightlife of London, the two lovers formalized their engagement before a wedding with great fanfare on April 29, 2011. George, 9, Charlotte, 7, and Louis, 4, came to complete their happiness, the balance of which has almost never been shaken. Britney Spears was unfortunately not so lucky…
