Prince William and Kate Middleton reign supreme in the chemistry department! They are perfect for one another from the biological perspective. They both appear to be Explorers—the novelty seeking, curious, creative people who are naturally expressive of the dopamine system in the brain. William summed up their mutual outlook on life:  “I like space and freedom.”

From my studies on Chemistry.com, I have found that two Explorers are naturally drawn to one another. They make an exciting team: Explorers love to learn, they have many interests, and they are high energy, flexible, adventurous, and interested in sex. Indeed, William likes to fly helicopters and Kate is a daring skier. They also like to travel the world together—almost never to the same place. These two Explorers have both found a mate who will work (and play) just as hard and creatively as they had always dreamed.

But William and Kate do appear to have some differences in biology. William is naturally expressive of estrogen in his brain—what I call a Negotiator. Indications of this are his guiding principles: “honesty,” “authenticity,” “thoughtfulness” and “caring.”  These are the ideals of the Negotiator.  Moreover, he once slept on the street in London to call attention to the homeless, and he is already involved in over 21 charitable organizations.  Diana wanted William to be a “people’s king.”  He’s built for it.

Kate is different.  Like many female world leaders, she appears to express more testosterone—what I call the Director.   Among the indications of this, she was a tomboy as a child, as well as a star athlete; and she still plays tennis and other competitive, action-oriented sports.   She is also an amateur photographer, which requires the spatial skills of the high testosterone type.  She goes to the gym every day—boosting levels of testosterone. And she is highly disciplined with what she eats (beans, salads, salmon and barbeque).  Self-discipline is another outstanding trait of the Director. Prince Charles has remarked of Kate, “She’s not like other girls; she never complains about bad weather.”  Directors don’t grumble.  Indeed, Kate has been called “formidable” and “self assured,” more traits of this biological type.

The Director and Negotiator are also naturally drawn to one another, as well as nicely matched.  In this case, Kate will be a bold, inventive, fair and loyal voice on the pillow of her future king.  And with his compassion, imagination and romantic streaks, William will be a supportive and charming teammate to this beautiful and dynamic forthcoming queen.
