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.
Kate Middleton was born on January 9, 1982, in Reading, England.
On April 29, 2011, she married Prince William at Westminster Abbey in London.
Kate attended exclusive boarding schools, including St.
Andrew's Prep School, Downe House, and Marlborough College.
The couple agreed not to hold hands in public, or be seen sitting together at dinner parties.

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. In 1987, Carole and Michael founded a mail-order party goods company.At first, Middleton's life didn't change much.The couple kept their relationship a secret, mostly due to the prince's extreme distrust of the press.And on her first day at co-ed Marlborough, some particularly mean-spirited boys began rating incoming students based on attractiveness and personality. Despite the initial setbacks, however, Kate did well in her studies, passing 11 GCSEs and three A-level exams.In 2001, Middleton became a student at the University of St Andrews in Fife, Scotland. Salvator's Hall — the same dormitory as Prince William of Wales.
