Ahead of Kate Middleton’s 40th birthday, royal fans gush over her stunning photos.
ROYAL FANS have expressed their joy for the Duchess of Cambridge’s upcoming birthday by gushing over images of Kate released by a well-known royal photographer.
Kate, who has been a member of the Royal Family for a decade, turns 40 on Sunday.
Samir Hussein, a multi-award-winning royal and entertainment photographer, shared 40 photos of the Duchess of Cambridge taken during that time period to commemorate her milestone birthday.
On Thursday (January 6), he began the countdown to the royal’s milestone by posting the first ten images to his Instagram account.
The first image in the carousel shows the Duchess holding an umbrella as she braved the rain and wind in 2017 to commemorate Princess Diana’s death at Kensington Palace, where she lived for 20 years.
In Diana’s honor, the palace gardens were transformed with flowers and foliage that reflected her life and paid homage to her style and work.
Another image was taken during Kate and William’s 2019 royal visit to Pakistan.
The photo was taken during the couple’s visit to Lahore’s Badshahi Mosque, where Kate wore a Maheen Khan green shalwar kameez with a matching headscarf.
Kate is shown holding a young Princess Charlotte in her arms in another image from the first section.
During the Cambridges’ royal tour of Canada, Kate is seen gazing fondly at Charlotte, who was one at the time.
In May of last year, the image was also shared to commemorate Charlotte’s sixth birthday.
“One of my favorite images of her,” Samir said.
Other photos show the Duchess of Cambridge with her husband, Prince William, who will turn 40 in June.
The 30 images shared by the photographer so far have elicited ecstatic reactions from royal fans ahead of Kate’s birthday on Sunday.
The snapper asked fans which of their favorites were their favorites, and it appeared that they couldn’t agree, with e.teresatouey writing, “These are hard to narrow down to one!”
“Oh Sam, they are all stunning,” said another user, amj109.
“They are all magical,” wrote user bbbeyonb on the Cambridges’ fan page, fangirling_the_cambridges.
