Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is celebrating her 34th birthday today January 9th. The Palace announced several new engagements for the Duchess in the new year, but first she will ring in 34 with Prince William, little Charlotte and George, her family and friends.
Last year, Duchess Kate celebrated her birthday quietly with those she loved, and we expect this year will be equally low key (okay, we'd imagine she and Wills threw QUITE the dinner party last year, but still...). She and William are likely enjoying their last few days at their country home Amner Hall before returning to London for engagements next week.
Kate certainly had an eventful 33rd year, what with raising young Prince George (who just went to school this week!), carrying out a year's worth of engagements while pregnant with Princess Charlotte, a christening and more. Throughout the year, the Duchess supported the causes that are near to her heart, really stepping up for the royal family.
It's no secret that we love Duchess Kate's fashion sense around here -- and follow what she wears almost religiously! It wasn't easy to choose, but we've rounded up our 34 favorite looks Kate has worn, in honor of her 34th birthday. Click through the gallery above to see!
