After a decade of marriage, Prince William is still head over heels for Kate Middleton—and he just said the sweetest thing about her to fans. During a recent outing in Wales in honor of St. David's Day, the Duke of Cambridge greeted bystanders who waited in the cold weather to meet with them. "[Kate] has the coldest hands ever," he said, People reported. "They say, 'Cold hands, warm heart.'"

Though the royal couple is relatively private, they have given us glimpses into their relationship over the years; they even let us know which shows they enjoy watching together. Prince William previously opened up about Kate's guilty pleasure (it's reality TV!). According to the future king, she loves Strictly Come Dancing, a dancing competition show set in the United Kingdom, similar to America's Dancing with the Stars. When meeting with some of the stars of the series, including one of the judges, Shirley Ballas, he noted that he likes it, too. "I have watched the show a couple of times," he said, adding that "Catherine is a huge fan and my mother-in-law loves it."

The pair first met at St. Andrews University over 20 years ago, where they both studied art history. They started off as friends, and Kate even helped Prince William get out of a few awkward dating situations long before their own relationship turned romantic. "Will was getting really hit on by this girl at a party and it was getting quite uncomfortable because he couldn't shake her off," said Laura Warshauer who spoke about the couple to Katie Nicholl, royal expert and author of Kate: The Future Queen ($14, walmart.com). "He was being really polite, but this girl just didn't get the hint," she added. To help out, Kate wrapped her arms around William from behind. He said that he had a girlfriend (referring to his then-friend and future-wife, Kate) before the pair left "giggling."

After escaping the hilarious scenario, Prince William mouthed "thanks so much" to her. "Kate was the only girl in the room who could have done that," Warshauer said. "And that was just a month after we started university." Their early bond set the stage for the loving relationship they would develop over the years, which culminated in their marriage; the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got engaged in 2010 and tied the knot in 2011.
