Kate sends fans into a frenzy with her birthday move, and the Royal Family LIVE: Finally unafraid!

ROYAL FANS are ecstatic as Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, turns 40 today and announces a bold new direction.

Three photographs of Kate, taken by fashion photographer Paolo Roversi at Kew Gardens for the occasion, have been described as “a fascinating departure from the images we’ve grown accustomed to seeing of her.”

Kate seems “finally unafraid to be a fashion template,” according to author Lisa Armstrong, writing in The Telegraph.

Ms Armstrong praised the three images, which show her wearing three different Alexander McQueen gowns, to the point of comparing them to Cecil Beaton’s 1930s portraits of the Queen.

“A reassuring demonstration of the British monarchy’s continuity and ability to heal itself after family rifts could hang side by side in the National Portrait Gallery with Beaton’s 1939 portrait of Queen Elizabeth,” she said.

The images of the Duchess will be part of the National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection, of which she is a patron.

Mr Roversi, who has photographed top models such as Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, called working with Kate “a true honor” and “a moment of pure joy,” and said she can “bring hope to the entire world” with her “positive energy.”

Meghan spoke about a reported disagreement over a bridesmaid dress during the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Oprah interview in March last year.

Meghan claimed that an “angry” Kate “made me cry and it hurt my feelings.”

A palace insider has now told Roya Nikkhah of the Sunday Times that they heard Meghan’s version of events.

“I’ve had hundreds of hours of conversations with her [Kate] and it never came up,” the palace source claimed in a special commemorative piece to mark the Duchess of Cambridge’s 40th birthday.

“I only ever heard from Meghan about it — and it was a completely different story than what she told Oprah.”

When Prince Charles ascends to the throne, the Duchess of Cambridge will inherit a particularly difficult royal title that belonged to Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana.

Diana’s title of Princess of Wales has remained vacant since her tragic death in 1997.

The Duchess of Cornwall, on the other hand, did not.
