To say that 2018 has been a big year for Duchess Catherine would be an understatement.

From welcoming her third child Prince Louis in April, attending her brother-in-law’s globally celebrated nuptials in May, to celebrating her father-in-law’s milestone 70th birthday in November – there’s been no shortage of events for Kate that will go down in modern history – quite literally.

But the ever-elegant Duchess seems to take it all in her stride, and without a hair out of place, no less.
