Catherine Middleton was born on January 9, 1982 in Reading, England. Daughter of business leaders Michael and Carole Middleton, she is the eldest of the siblings and has a sister, Philippa, aka Pippa, and a brother, James.

Her destiny changed when she was admitted to the University of Saint Andrews in Scotland where Prince William of England was a student. Their relationship began in 2001. The couple is spied on by the tabloids waiting for the announcement of their engagement.

The pressure grows and the prince is late in declaring it…the couple separates in 2007. But the break-up is short-lived. After eight years, Prince William officially asked for Catherine Middleton’s hand in marriage after receiving the blessing of Queen Elizabeth II and Kate Middleton’s father. In front of millions of television viewers, the royal wedding is celebrated on April 29th 2011 in Westminster Abbey. On this occasion, the newlyweds receive the titles of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. After the wedding, the princely couple move to the Isle of Anglesey in Wales.

A new chapter in their history is written with the birth of their first child, Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge, on 22 July 2013. In September 2014, Kate and William announce that they are expecting their second child. On May 2, 2015, Kate gives birth to a little princess, Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge. On September 4, 2017, Kensington Palace announces that the couple is expecting their third child. The birth is scheduled for April 2018. On April 23, 2018, the family grows with the birth of a little boy, Louis Arthur Charles of Cambridge.
