Prince William and Kate Middleton’s love story seems like the stuff of which fairy tales are made. But longtime royal fans know the couple’s early days of courtship were anything but perfect. It’s true, the Prince and Princess of Wales had their ups and downs like any other couple, and it seems like Netflix’s original series The Crown will recreate a significant turning point from their burgeoning romance.

The sixth season of The Crown is due to drop its final batch of episodes later this year, and the last installment of the Emmy-winning series will chronicle Kate and William’s relationship at college. Among the highs and lows from the couple’s courtship, one pivotal moment that will reportedly appear in the series is when Kate walked a runway fashion show in nothing but a sheer dress and some underwear, according to The Sun. Why was this such a major moment for the couple? We’ll explain further.

By this point in their relationship, Kate and William were well acquainted with one another. But once William saw Kate on the catwalk, everything changed. William made his interest in Kate known, and the two started officially dating not long after the 2002 charity fashion show. Of course, William and Kate went through their share of break ups and reconciliations thereafter. But it all led to their nuptials in 2011.
As much as we think we know about the Prince and Princess of Wales’ romance, seeing it played out on the small screen will surely be a treat. We’ve already caught a glimpse of the young actors portraying the royals, and we’re counting down the days until the series’ return. Royal fans: get your Netflix queue ready.
