Born on January 9th, 1982 in the town of Reading, England, Catherine Elizabeth Middleton is better known to the world as Kate Middleton – or, to give her full royal title: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. In 2011, Kate married Prince William, second in line to the British throne, after the couple met at St Andrews University in Scotland where they both studied History of Art.
Long before her marriage to William, Kate began attending royal events such as William's passing out parade at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst. She soon became a frequent sight in British newspapers and magazines, earning herself an army of fans. Since their wedding day (which took place at Westminster Abbey in London), Kate has become very much a public figure across the world.
One of the many reasons why Kate has so many adoring fans is her fashion sense. Stylish and elegant are two words which describe Kate perfectly. From casual skinny jeans to dazzling, floor-length gowns, Kate rocks most looks to perfection, but it's widely acknowledged that she looks her best in tailored, elegant dresses teamed with her favorite nude heels. Her trademark long, chestnut brown hair is usually worn in subtle yet glamorous ringlets, tumbling around her shoulders and complementing her outfits perfectly.
Kate is a keen supporter of many charities and is a patron of many, including drug charity Action on Addiction. She gave birth to a baby boy, George Alexander Louis, in July 2013, and looked radiant as she appeared on the hospital steps to show her little boy (who is also the future King of England!) to the world.
