According to Mr Lacey, Kate had no choice but to watch the “screaming girls” who flocked to see William during his first tour on New Zealand from home.
The author wrote: “In the meantime, the prince, now 23, undertook his first solo royal tour abroad when he flew to New Zealand to represent the Queen at the sixtieth anniversary of Allied victory in the Second World War.
“Happily, the British Lions rugby team were touring the islands at the same time, which made for a lively 10 days of engagements – rendered all the livelier by screaming crowds of hysterical young women.
“Kate followed her boyfriend’s progress – and the screaming – via the evening TV bulletins at home.”
