When Prince William got into University, the press jointly agreed that the Prince who had lived all his life in the spotlight will be given a break and allowed to study away from the spotlight.
There is more. As there was still a lot of interest in the British heir, William used a different name while he was in university to keep a low profile. The alias he used was Steve.
He officially got admitted into the University of St Andrews under his real name William Wales, but all his classmates used the nickname to prevent any unwanted attention.
Prince William studied history of art before switching to geography. In June 2005, at the age of 23, he graduated alongside Kate Middleton, his girlfriend at the time and now his wife.
