Kate Middleton just celebrated her birthday and the Palace celebrated the occasion with some stunning portraits of her …
The British royal family is now one of the most famous families in the world.
Yes, even more famous than our beloved Kardashians.
But there is one royal couple, the most famous of all …
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, or William and Keith as we know them best, are the favorites of a younger, more modern monarchy.
Following their lavish and well-documented royal wedding in 2011, Wills and Kate found themselves in the center of media attention.
And we still cannot get enough of them.
It all started for Will and Kate back in 2001 …
William, son of Prince Charles and a candidate for the throne, met Kate at St Andrew’s University in Scotland.
From there, the couple’s relationship blossomed until …
9 years after their first meeting in 2010, their engagement was announced.
A couple of years later, it was announced that Kate was pregnant with their first child.
In July 2013, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge was born, becoming the third in line to the throne of Great Britain. Kate emerged from St. Mary’s Hospital in London in a blue polka-dot dress that many considered a fitting tribute to Princess Diana, who herself wore a similar spotted outfit thirty-one years ago.
Then, just 2 years later, Kate got pregnant again …
Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born in May 2015.
And just 3 years later, in April 2018, Prince Louis Arthur Charles was born.
Princess Charlotte became the first woman from the royal family to retain her claim to the throne despite having a younger brother.
Prior to the passing of the Crown Succession Act of 2013, having a son meant he would jump over any eldest daughters in the line of succession.
But now that Princess Charlotte has not been excluded on the basis of gender, Prince Louis remains fifth in line to the throne, and Charlotte is fourth in line after her older brother, Prince George.
It is clear that William and Keith are indeed paving the way for a more modern monarchy.
And fans of the royal family seem to agree.
It’s been over ten years since William and Kate tied the knot …
And their popularity is only growing!
And if there is something that the world loves about this pair …
This is Kate’s style as she has been known for her impeccable sense of style ever since the Duchess of Cambridge joined the royal family.
i mean we all Think of Kate’s iconic shots at her student fashion show.
Ever since Kate became a duchess, her style has evolved into something unrivaled.
Or that Wedding Dress.
When she married Prince William in 2011, Kate wowed the world in a stunning Alexander McQueen dress with a 9-foot train and handmade lace sleeves.
It became one of the most famous wedding dresses of all time and remains a hot topic of conversation among designers to this day.
But now Kensington Palace has released 3 new portraits in honor of Kate’s fortieth birthday …
And intimate images got all speaking…
Photos taken by photographer Paolo Roversi show Kate in three different dresses designed by Alexander McQueen, who also created her wedding dress.
The photographs are to be part of the National Portrait Gallery, giving people across the UK the opportunity to see them.
It is said to be part of the Homecoming Project, which the palace says is “a nationwide initiative that takes portraits of famous people to places with which they are closely associated.”
The photos were taken at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and appear to reflect an old romantic style of photography that not everyone is a fan of.
Kate’s jewelry is limited, but both sets of earrings go a long way.
In one of the pictures, she is shown with pearl and diamond earrings of Princess Diana of Collingwood. And in the other, a pair of diamond earrings from the Queen’s private collection.
We think she looks as radiant as ever!
