Harry has previously revealed how lucky he was to have found his childhood sweetheart. "If I was single now and meeting people, you'd never know if they were with you for the right reasons," he said to the Evening Standard. "Is it the money? You'd never really know. So I'm lucky that I've got a childhood sweetheart. She always wanted to do her own thing. She went to university and worked hard. I have a great family, they keep me grounded and they've worked just as hard as me to get me where I am."

Kate also wrote about her love of hypnobirthing on her own Instagram page. She said: "Once Harry and I started a hypnobirthing course it completely changed our opinions on birth. It took away all of the fear and we were both really excited. It taught us how natural birth is, and gave us the tools to deal with birth."
