Looking back on 2014, our style recaps would not be complete without a look at the style of one very fashionable royal: the Duchess of Cambridge. The former Kate Middleton is arguably one of the world's most famous women, so she's been at the forefront of our minds -- and articles! -- all year. From a whirlwind three week royal tour of Australia and New Zealand in April, to royal baby rumors and finally a pregnancy announcement in September, the Duchess has been quite busy this year.

Ever since stepping into the spotlight, Kate has leaned towards British designers to make up the majority of her wardrobe and her favorites include Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham andTemperley London. This year, she donned Goat fashion several times, and even dipped into American designers Diane von Furstenberg and Michael Kors. The Duchess is just starting to show, in her fifth month of pregnancy, so we are excited to see how she'll continue to dress her growing baby bump in 2015.
