LONDON (AP) -- Prince William has reportedly reconciled with his girlfriend, Kate Middleton.
The British newspaper The Sun says the prince persuaded her to rekindle their relationship, 12 weeks after they split up.
The paper quotes a source as saying the time apart gave them space to examine how they really felt. A spokesman for the prince isn't commenting.
The couple broke up amid intense media speculation that they were about to get married. Middleton had also complained about the paparazzi.
But the paper's source says the prince convinced Middleton that "the problems of dating a future king are a price worth paying."
Middleton sat with the prince in the royal box at last Sunday's memorial concert for Princess Diana, fueling rumors the couple had gotten back together.
