The Grand National winner Sam Waley-Cohen invited both to a gathering at his family’s Oxfordshire residence after their split and, later that summer, Kate attended a themed party at William’s Army barracks.
Kate turned up at the Army party, appropriately named 'Freakin Naughty', the future Queen was reportedly wooed by William's outrageous costume - hot pants paired with a policemans helmet, writes OK! Magazine.

In 2011, royal pal Sam explained of his involvement in the Cambridges’ relationship: “There’s an idea that I was like Cupid. People love the idea that somebody put them back together but they put themselves together far more.”
In 2008 Kate gave her thanks to Sam by helping him organise an Eighties-themed charity roller disco - and she turned up, too!
Her future husband missed out, working away as a full-time search and rescue party.
