Ever since her marriage to William, Kate Middleton has been in the public eye but sometimes it has been too much in the public eye. Since she is photographed constantly, every wardrobe malfunction gets caught by someone.
Kate Middleton, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge, married Prince William in 2011 at Westminster Abbey.

“I really hope I can make a difference. Even in the smallest way. I am looking forward to helping as much as I can.”
Kate Middleton was born on January 9, 1982, in Reading, England. On April 29, 2011, she married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in London. Shortly before their wedding, Queen Elizabeth conferred Kate with the title of Catherine, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge. After the palace officially announced her pregnancy in December 2012, Middleton gave birth to Prince George, the third in line to the throne, on July 22, 2013, amid an international media frenzy. She gave birth to a daughter, the fourth in line to the throne, on May 2, 2015.
Kate came from a decidedly working-class stock of coal miners and builders on her mother’s side. Her maternal grandmother, Dorothy Goldsmith, pushed her children to aim high and, as a result, Kate’s mother became an airline hostess—at the time, a considerably glamorous job. It was on this job at British Airways that Carole met Michael Middleton, a dispatcher, whose wealthy family hails from Leeds and which has ties to British aristocracy. The couple married soon after.
In 1987, Carole and Michael founded a mail-order party goods company. The business was a surprise success, eventually making the Middleton family multi-millionaires.
