Happy Birthday to the Duchess of Cambridge! Kate Middleton, an ordinary girl from Berkshire, married Prince William April 29, 2011 in a wedding that has inspired an entire generation. I was a senior in high school when Kate stepped out the car at Westminster Abbey in her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown. My mother and I both exclaimed, “It’s perfect” as we watched her up the steps to the church to marry Prince William. It was an iconic moment to inspire decades of brides to come. As Kate has grown into a Queen in-training, her wardrobe provides perfect inspiration for a bride-to-be due to it’s modern yet conservative and completely sophisticated manner. In honor of Duchess Kate’s 38th birthday, and distraction from the Megxit drama, we gathered Kate’s best outfits en blanc for your engagement shower or wedding dress inspiration!
