It’s Kate Middleton’s Birthday and She’s Our Total Hero
8 ways she’s rocking 35
In a perfect world, Kate Middleton would probably spend her 35th birthday canoodling with her hubby Prince Wills and binge watching The Crown. Instead, she’s got two toddlers to tend to and a slew of public engagements (and epic outfits) to plan. So, in honor of her royal birthday, a mini–tribute to the princess. Here, all the ways Kate already has 35 on lock.
She’s a Hands-On Mum
Whether she’s playing with balloon animals—or wiping drool off George’s chin.
But Cherishes the Value of Date Night
Like when she checked out a Nets game in Brooklyn. Or flew kid-free with William to check out the Taj Mahal.
She’s Got Great Hair
Yes, her stylist Richard Ward is responsible. But so are her genes and having the confidence to stick with a style that works.
…And Has Her Personal Style on Lock
Whether she’s wearing legging-like denim—or dressed in black tie.
She’s An Awesome Sister
Hello, she bowed out of being a bridesmaid in Pippa Middleton’s upcoming May wedding so she doesn’t steal the bride’s thunder. Class act.
Prince Harry might be her second favorite person on the planet (after Wills, of course). And you know she’s pro-Meghan Markle—and Harry settling down.
She Knows a Thing or Two About Standing Up to the Queen
Whether it’s about the length of her skirt or her parenting techniques, Kate is confident going her own way despite the best efforts of the Queen Mum.
Best of All, She Doesn’t Take Herself Too Seriously
Royal family pressure? What royal family pressure?
