It turns out that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, did not have her first brush with royalty when she met her now-husband Prince William in university, but rather years prior to attending university when she entered into a learning programme set up by Prince Philip.

Prince Philip founded the programme, which was called the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) award programme, which equipped students of a certain age with confidence, resilience, and the skills they needed to make the most out of life.
