Sometimes we forget that royals were young once too. But for anyone needing a reminder, a TikTok video filled with photos of Kate Middleton living her best pre-royal life in her 20s has gone viral and we can totally see why.

Though the video was originally posted on March 30, 2023, by a celeb fan account named @jusst_tiktokss, People reported that the video—which you can watch here—started to blow up on the Princess of Wales’s 42nd birthday. While a sped-up version of “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight)” by ABBA plays over the video (which has over 4M views and 278K likes), royally-obsessed fans are treated to a montage of photos that show Catherine being a regular, twenty-something gal.

In one snap, the future queen appears to be shopping while sporting UGGS in the color chestnut brown (currently $180), black jeans and a pink cardigan. Meanwhile, another snap shows Catherine rocking a green sequin top and mustard yellow shorts while walking to a disco charity event in September 2008. The fan account captioned the video, “Kate Middleton before royalty (a lot of partying with [Prince] William).”

A slew of royal admirers flooded the comments section, with one person writing, “She was enjoying her younger years,” alongside an emoji surrounded by hearts. A second person chimed in and said, “I’m obsessed with party girl Kate.” If that weren’t enough, another user gushed over the photos of Catherine partying with her future hubby, Prince William, commenting, “I loved how she lived her youth with her now husband and the beautiful family they have now! [pink heart emoji.]”

Of course, this is not the only video featuring Catherine and William to go viral on TikTok. Back in November 2023, a ​​royal admirer with the handle @princesscatherine_ uploaded a PDA-packed video of the prince and princess. One clip shows the couple attending the Top Gun: Maverick premiere in London back in May 2022. In the footage, the prince places a hand on his wife’s back as they walk down the red carpet.
