As the Duchess of Cambridge celebrates turning 35 on January 9th, we look back at her remarkable life.
She was your everyday little girl, who grew up in the British country side of Bucklebury with loving parents and two siblings.
But her life would change forever when her paths crossed with Prince William at the University of St Andrews in Scotland back in 2001. Urban legend says Catherine had a poster of Wills on her wall as a teenager but she has since spoken out on the tale. "I had the Levis guy on my wall, not a picture of William, sorry."
The rest reads like a real-life fairy-tale - from their incredible 2011 wedding to their long-lasting love and gorgeous children. Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge are the real deal.
As she turns another year older, she only becomes more graceful.
The mother-of-two has used her global influence to help create a better world, working alongside an array of charities including her very own The Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.
She is also a patron for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices, SportsAid, Place2Be and Action on Addiction.
In 2013, her life entered another big chapter when she welcomed her first son Prince George. “It’s very emotional. It’s such a special time. I think any parent will know what this feeling feels like,” she said at the time.
Many royal well-wishers were delighted to see the royal shine in her role as a mum as the Cambridges embarked on their very first royal tour as a family of four to Canada in September last year.
