Happy birthday to the beautiful, elegant and fashionable Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
Born in Reading, England on Jan. 9, 1982, Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, turns 31 today.
She is the wife of Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge and a fashion icon, who represents the word “elegance” and leads the trend.
Middleton is the eldest of three children. Even though she was not born into a royal family, she received a good education. She studied art history at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, where she met Prince William and started their eight-year love marathon before their engagement.
On April 29, 2011, Kate and Prince William had their grand royal wedding at Westminster Abbey in London. There were estimations of an audience of around 300 million or more who watched the wedding.
Recently, on Dec. 3, 2012, St James’ Palace announced that Kate was pregnant with her first child.
Kate Middleton is famous for her fashion style and always appears on the “best dressed” lists. Middleton was number one on Vanity Fair’s annual Best Dressed list three years in a row in 2010, 2011 and 2012. She also was awarded the accolade of “Best Celebrity Smile” in 2012 in a poll by Bupa.
