Although she's set to marry England's Prince William in "the wedding of the century," Kate Middleton is an unlikely choice for royal bride since a commoner hasn't married an heir to the throne for 350 years. But while she may lack royal blood, she has another advantage -- a family history of ambition and determination that has propelled the Middletons from the depths of a British coal mine to Windsor Castle. We look at how Kate's drive has helped her to survive paparazzi hounding, nasty media nicknames, and a humiliating public break-up.
