Move over, Katy Perry: It appears that Kate Middleton had her very own “I Kissed A Girl” moment years before she met Prince William!
According to Jessica Hay, who attended the tony English boarding school Marlborough College with Kate, the pair passionately locked lips after downing alcohol!
Jessica tells Star magazine that she and then-14-year-old Kate got “a little tipsy” before a school dance in 1996, and let their inhibitions go. “I pecked her on the lips,” Jessica says. “Our eyes locked and we started full-on kissing, with each of us pretending the other was a boy!”
But Jessica is quick to add that the lip-locking was not the beginning of a lesbian relationship. “It was more about a mutual love of each other and an intimate friendship. If you combine raging hormones and alcohol, all sorts of things happen.”
So what was their relationship about? “I was her protector, best friend and guide, making sure she became fully involved in school life.”
And while Kate may have zeroed in on Jessica’s lips, even back then, it was Prince William who was on her mind. “She had a picture of Prince William on the wall of our dorm,” Jessica says. “She always told me he seemed like a kind, caring, sensitive person.”
