The Dutchess of Cambridge is 30 today. Perhaps this post is a little predictable, but I have a real soft spot for Kate Middleton - how could you not be fascinated by such a charismatic and charming princess?
Her elegance and poise is really a marvel. She is one of the worlds most high profile women and she manages to carry the pressure oh so well. I really do find her a good role model, she has that old school glamour which is such a rarity nowadays.
I heard on the news that her birthday would be a private, low-key affair. One can only imagine what will be going on behind palace doors.. if it were me it would include beautiful clothes and flowers, better food, lovely cocktails and close friends and family.. perhaps a few records and a some tipsy party games..
