73605330.jpgPrince William's girlfriend Kate Middleton, has quit her job as accessories buyer for Jigsaw amid rumours that the couple are nearing an engagement. According to the Daily Mail, Kate told friends that she was leaving because she wanted "some time to herself," but others are speculating that it's down to her relationship with William.

The 25-year-old took on the job in November last year, which was especially created for her by Jigsaw's owners, John and Belle Robinson, to accommodate her royal commitments.

"Kate is a nice enough girl but she was never what you might call committed to the job," said a fellow staff member. "She never worked full-time and appeared to take an inordinate amount of time off to go jetting round the world with her boyfriend." So... no parting gift then...?
