Hardly any other European country has more to offer in terms of art and history than Italy. And so, before becoming a royal, Duchess Catherine moved to Florence to take courses in Italian and Art History when she was just eighteen. She spent three months in the city that houses the Museum for Renaissance art, the magnificent Uffizi Gallery, studying at the British Institute of Florence.

Kate Middleton found her great love in Scotland

Even though when one thinks of Italy, one thinks of dashing, dark-haired men on Vespas, Kate did not meet the love of her life there. Instead, she met and fell in love with her future husband, Prince William, while studying Art and History at the renowned University of St. Andrews. After graduating, Duchess Catherine's first job was as an accessory buyer for the British fashion label Jigsaw, which is why she moved to London.
