Kate Middleton officially became a British Royal when she married Prince William in 2011. These days, she has focused her time on working as the Duchess of Cambridge, as a mother to her three kids, and as a wife to the future King of the United Kingdom.

But, prior to her time as an all-around working royal, the young Kate reportedly had two jobs outside the royal Firm. The first one was with Jigsaw, where she worked as an "accessories buyer," according to the Evening Standard.

After her graduation in 2005, Kate Middleton reportedly entered her first job with Jigsaw. Upon obtaining the position, the now-Duchess "requested" for the position to be a "part-time," royal expert, Rebecca English reportedly shared in a documentary titled, William & Kate: Too Good To Be True.

As added, the royal's request came after explaining that it was because of her "relationship" with a "very high-profile man." She did get her request, which reportedly allowed her to come to work three days a week.

The same points were also reportedly echoed by the co-founder of Jigsaw, Belle Robinson. Speaking to the publication, she said that she found Kate "very mature" for her age. Not to mention, she revealed that she was "so impressed" with the Duchess' work ethic.

Kate Middleton left her position at the company two years later. As explained, the "attention" she was getting from the media "became too much" as photographers reportedly followed her "to and from work."

After leaving Jigsaw, the Duchess of Cambridge went to work for her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton's company, Party Pieces, as per  Marie Claire. It is revealed that the family business centered on selling "high-end party supplies" for events, like birthdays, weddings, and any other celebrations.

Kate worked for the company until she and Prince William got engaged. As stated, she left her post at her family's company so that she could "concentrate" on the preparations needed to become a member of the British Royal Family.

In other related news, Cheat Sheet claimed that Queen Elizabeth II "demanded" Kate Middleton to have job experiences first before marrying Prince William. It is also noted that the head of the British Monarchy was "disturbed" by young-Kate's "lack of work ethic," royal expert, Katie Nicholl asserted.

This is also reportedly the reason why the engagement and wedding of the couple got delayed since Kate Middleton had to obtain work experiences first before becoming a part of the British Royal Family.
