London, England, United Kingdom (AHN) – Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, turned 30 Monday. But don’t expect any lavish parties or over the top bashes.
Palace officials say Kate’s birthday celebration will be a low-key and private affair.
As the Duchess marks the milestone, she is also set to embark on her career as a queen. So far, we have seen little and heard even less from the beauty.
Since her fairytale wedding to Prince William last April, the Duchess has made several appearances around the world that marked her transformation from a commoner to the world’s most talked about princess and style icon. However, she is expected to attend many more functions and highlight her charitable endeavors in the coming months.
So far, Kate has won accolades for her sense of style and her genuine touch with the general public. The media love her youth, beauty and easy nature.
On Sunday, Kate and William attended the premier of Steven Spielberg’s movie “War Horse” in central London. The Duchess wore a stunning black lace dress as she and William dazzled the crowd on the red carpet.
Kate has already taken on an unofficial role as champion of the British fashion industry, wearing the creations of British designers at home and abroad.
The year ahead looks busy for Kate with several celebrations throughout Britain, including the queen’s jubilee.
