New portraits of Kate Middleton have been released in honor of the Duchess of Cambridge’s 40th birthday.
Kate poses regal in three new official photographs released to commemorate her milestone birthday on Sunday, wearing Alexander McQueen and a pair of Princess Diana’s earrings.
The Duchess of Cambridge has released three portraits to commemorate her 40th birthday, all of which capture the future queen’s sophisticated glamour.
Kate Middleton has been photographed in three different relaxed poses, all while wearing Alexander McQueen dresses and letting her hair down.
Paolo Roversi, a well-known fashion photographer who has worked with celebrities such as Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, described photographing the duchess as “pure joy” and said she can “bring hope to the whole world” with her “positive energy.”
On Sunday, the duchess will celebrate her 40th birthday, which will most likely be a private family gathering at the Cambridges’ Norfolk home.
The future queen will be at William’s side as events unfold, watching her young family grow up while pursuing her own charitable interests.
“Taking the portrait of Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge was a true honor and a moment of pure joy for me,” Roversi said.
“I was moved by her warm and friendly welcome, and enchanted by her gleaming eyes, which reflected her soul’s beauty, and her smile, which revealed her heart’s generosity.”
“It was an unforgettable moment for me, a profound and rich experience.”
I’ve met a wonderful person, someone who can bring hope to the entire world with her positive energy.”

Kate wears a striking red McQueen gown and the Queen’s earrings in one photo, and she smiles at the camera while her hands appear to be casually in the gown’s pockets.
Roversi is known for his daring film and printing techniques, and the remaining images were created in monochrome for an ethereal effect.
Kate is shown in profile and expressionless looking left in one, a head and shoulders image, and in the other, with her engagement ring prominently displayed, Kate is shown in profile and expressionless looking left.
In both photographs, she is wearing Diana, Princess of Wales’s earrings.
The duchess was praised ahead of her birthday for her “vision and commitment” in establishing her Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood to support children’s development.
