Happy Birthday Duchess of Cambridge: Kate Turns 32


This time last year the Duchess was pregnant with her first child, Prince George. Kate turned  32 on Friday (Jan 9) and since she had a whirlwind year leading up to the birth of Prince George, so  it is no wonder that she wanted to lay low for this birthday.

To mark the occasion, the awesome Royal Central UK site compiled 32 facts about the Duchess who will one day be queen.  Check it out:


  1. Catherine was born on 9th January 1982 at Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading, England.
  2. Her parents are Michael Middleton and Carole Middleton. Michael once worked as a pilot and Carol was an air hostess, both for British Airways which is how the couple met.
  3. As a titled member of the Royal Family, Catherine no longer holds a legal surname – she has been known to refer to herself as ‘Mrs Cambridge’, however.
  4. She is one of the most influential fashion figures in the world and her style has had such an effect on people’s fashion, it has been dubbed the ‘Kate effect’.
  5. She has 1 brother and 1 sister, both younger than her. Pippa Middleton (whose first name is fully ‘Phillipa’) and James Middleton (whose middle name is William).
