We have hear Mike's voice twice. Carole once. Pippa's never and Kate only after her engagement.
Without Kate at St Andrews,William probably leaves after his first year. Goes to Sandhurst early and becomes more young Harry like with heavy drinking and clubs. It was credited to Kate for keeping William at St Andrews
If you believe that the Middletons don't discuss Will and Kate I point you to the Twitter account of a pap named Niraj Tanna. Most particularly from the period Nov. 8 to Dec. 3, 2012 and then to the late evening of July 21st. He seems privy to some rather interesting information even before the Queen.
