Britain's Prince William's ex-girlfriend Kate Middleton has been promoted

The brunette beauty - who split from the prince last month - has won a junior position in Jigsaw's design department, after just six months of working as an assistant jewellery buyer for the popular high street fashion chain.A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: 'A lot of people have been moved as part of a major shake-up. Now she might even design her own line. That would be exploiting her name, perhaps, but they would make a fortune.'I don't think they would have done this if she's still been with William, because it looks like favouritism.' Kate joined the company in 2006 - a year after completing her History of Art studies at Scotland's St Andrew's University. The 25-year-old met William, 24, during her first year at the university, where the prince was started out studying History of Art but later switched to Geography. Since the couple decided to part ways, Kate has been keen to show the world she is carrying on with her life, and has been pictured on several nights out with girls, shopping and playing tennis.
