On Thursday, The Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her 38th birthday. Born on January 09 in 1982, Catherine marked the day privately with family and relatives. Kensington Palace released a beautiful portrait of The Duchess of Cambridge as a thank you token to all the birthday wishes.
The picture was taken by Matt Porteous at Cambridge family’s country residence Anmer Hall. I believe the picture was taken on the same day when the family posed for their 2018 Christmas Card as Duchess is in the same outfit.
Both Royal Family and Clarence House wished The Duchess Happy Birthday by sharing some lovely pictures on social media.

Westminster Abbey, a place really close to The Duchess’ heart – she married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in April 2011, marked the event by ringing the bells.
It is believed that family kick-started the birthday celebrations last weekend at their country residence with close friends and family members when they joined Queen for Sunday Church Service.
On Thursday Catherine’s father, Michael Middleton was seen at Kensington Palace. Also seen were Princess Eugenie and Catherine’s stylist Natasha Archer Jackson.
The Duchess herself was seen driving little Prince Louis outside Kensington Palace. It was reported that the duo was coming back from Louis’ swimming session. It looks like Catherine is wearing her Barbour Linhope Featherweight Jacket.
