Kate Middleton Turns 32! Celebrate With 32 (Royally!) Defining Moments

Kate Middleton, aka Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, turns 32 today—and my, what a year she’s had! Perhaps the biggest moment so far came after months (let’s be honest, years) of worldwide speculation, Kate and her husband Prince William welcomed a son, baby George Alexander Louis.

In order to properly celebrate the birthday of Middleton—who many believe to be highly similar to William’s beloved mother Princess Diana—we felt it was only appropriate to chart out her absolute defining moments—be it fashion, charity endeavors, or simply bonding with her family (royal and otherwise).
