The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge faced a bit of on awkward situation at the weekend, as they attended the wedding of an old school friend of Kate’s.

We’ve all been there when we’ve bumped into an ex-partner at some social occasion or another.

But poor Kate and Wills had to contend with seeing no less than four of their former boyfriends and girlfriends as they attended the nuptials of Kate’s Marlborough College school friend Alice St John Webster and Gerald Alvenel.

Among the 300 well-connected friends was Willem Marx, Kate’s high school love, as well as one man we’re pretty sure William might have felt slightly strange around - Henry Ropner, whom the Duchess is believed to have dated after briefly splitting from Prince in 2007.

Popping up from William’s past was his former flame Rose Farquhar, whom the prince dated after leaving Eton College in 2000, as well as Olivia Hunt, one of the ladies he wooed before meeting and falling in love with Kate at St Andrews University.

For anyone else this would no doubt be a nightmare situation, but cool and calm as ever, Kate and Wills apparently shrugged off any uncomfortable feelings and plastered big smiles on their faces.

Looking stylish as ever, Kate wore a summery pink floral £490 silk dress by London-based brand Beulah, which she teamed up with the white-crea Jane Corbett hat she wore for the Order of the Garter service last month. The outfit was finished off with her trusty nude heels, which have become a staple in the Duchess’s wardrobe over the last 12 months.

Kate’s little sister Pippa, 28, was also at the wedding and wore a pink and black Alice Temperley dress which set her back £380. The party planner, who is rumoured to be moving to New York shortly, teamed the dress up with a large black hat and black heels.
