Decoding the digits of this royal romance
It's official -- Prince William and Kate Middleton are off the market! And now that the epic royal wedding has passed and Prince William and the new Princess Catherine have embarked on their life together, we're running the numbers on these two regal lovebirds for a deeper look at their relationship's compatibility.
First thing's first: the most important number in any Numerology chart is a person's Life Path number. Prince William's Life Path is an 11, a Master number, while Kate's is a 3.
The combination of 11 and 3 is actually a very passionate and strong one. However, the emotional sensitivity embodied by the 11 combined with the impulsive communication style of the 3 may very well provide some bumps in the road.
As an 11, William may not be the best at handling criticism and confrontation, preferring to withdraw or walk away rather than deal with an issue head-on. Kate's 3 enables her to let criticism roll off her more easily, but she may also be prone to speaking before she thinks, making flippant comments that are no big deal to her, but strike William's sensitive chord. Kate must be careful to keep her verbal impulses under control and William must rely on his self-confidence to handle occasional criticisms. Beauty and love certainly lie at the bottom of William and Kate's relationship, and it's completely in their own hands to either destroy or strengthen this loving foundation.
Syncing up for humanity
William and Kate's 9 and 6 Expression numbers are quite compatible, focusing each of their attentions on the needs of others -- both those close to them and humanity as a whole. The 9 and 6 Expression numbers make William and Kate generous and caring people -- which we've seen from them on countless occasions -- with similar motivations and approaches to politics and values.
Yes, the 9 Expression can be arrogant and self-righteous, and Kate's 6 Expression can become intolerant and angry for no reason, but the darker sides of these numbers are rarely displayed, and the 9 and 6 Expression combination is still certainly one of the best number combinations around.

With Heart's Desire numbers of 8 and 6, William and Kate are both practical and goal-oriented people who are not afraid of responsibility. However, with Kate's sense of responsibility more focused on family and friends and William's strong commitment to his personal goals and dreams, there may be a push-pull between William's need to take risks for greater rewards and Kate's needs to remain grounded to protect her loved ones. The 8 and 6 combination can go one of two ways -- William and Kate can inspire each other toward more of a middle ground, or they can attempt to dominate each other, instigating guilt trips and victimization. The key here is to not try to overpower each other.
A life apart
Unfortunately, William and Kate's Personality numbers of 1 and 9 can be quite challenging in romance. (They are, however, not bad for business relationships, which is a large part of this union.) This combination of numbers calls for William and Kate to maintain their own lives as well as their life together. The demands of royalty are high, and the 1-9 combination requires that neither William nor Kate get in each other's way or expect each other to always be there when needed. Thankfully, their long courtship and the other numbers in their charts indicate similar approaches to life, which brings in the mutual understanding that's necessary to make this 1-9 combination work.
As with any relationship, there will be joyous times and times of struggle, and differences of opinion and bumps in the road are often a healthy way of growing and learning. The key is to respect and understand each other's approach and navigate the good and the bad together. Prince William and Kate's numbers do show the potential for some troublesome feelings to arise, but their numbers play off each other well, indicating that they will be able to lean on each other through it all and continuously return to their glorious royal lives together.
