Happy birthday, Kate Middleton!
Today is a major milestone for the Duchess of Cambridge, as she is celebrating the big 4-0. And while we predicted there would be a brand-new portrait of the royal to mark the exciting day (just as there's been in the past), we woke up to an even better surprise.
But that's not all. Along with sharing the snaps, Middleton revealed that these photos will be hung in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery. The historic art museum shared the photos to their own account, reporting that they were taken in the Kew Gardens in November of 2021.
