"What is interesting to me is that The Crown did not shy away from showing Carole as insistent that Kate kept going," Clare McHugh told an outlet. "I think the only part where they faltered was when they had Kate resisting a bit."
Kate backed out of attending her dream school to go to St Andrews, which resulted in the Princess of Wales taking a gap year. Aside from starting university later than she initially planned, Kate was mocked for her decade-long courtship with William. However, McHugh alluded to Carole being committed to Kate becoming a princess.
"The two of them were as one all along," she added.
"If that's OK with you," Kate said in an episode."Because you've always had your sights on someone else for me."
McHugh noted she was "quite sure" that "psychologically Kate did not resist."
"They decided this together," McHugh added.
Biographer Katie Nicholl discussed Kate and William's union in her biography Kate: The Future Queen.
"It seemed every girl in America wanted to come to St Andrews to search out the prince. Kate would have read the papers," Nicholl penned.
“William, like Kate, loved sports and was one of the best hockey and rugby players in his year," she said. "Of course, the arrival of the prince generated a flurry of excitement. It was the first time Kate had set her eyes on the young prince but certainly not the last.”

“[Kate’s friends] said, ‘Uh-uh, she didn’t meet him at St Andrews, she met him before she got there, while she was at school during her sixth form through some of her friends,’" Nicholl said in an interview. “They knew Prince William and Prince Harry, so there wasn’t any meeting.’ And that, for me, it changed everything.”
