To celebrate the Princess of Wales' 42nd birthday, we have chosen 42 of our favourite photos of the beloved royal. 

With hundreds of public moments under her wing and millions of photos taken, it wasn’t easy to select only 42. 

Born on 9 January, 1982 (age 41 years), in Reading, United Kingdom as Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. 

In 2001, she met Prince William at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, and 10 years later they married at Westminster Abbey. Becoming the Duchess of Cambridge, the royal couple went on to have three beautiful children, George, Charlotte, and Louis.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess became Princess of Wales when her husband was created Prince of Wales by his father, King Charles III on 9 September 2022.
