I respect how she practices what she preaches. She waited until her youngest is about to start school before taking on more responsibilities from the Royal Family. She looks amazing! What a beautiful family!

I’m so impressed with the Duchess of Cambridge, coming from a middle class background and successfully establishing herself with the RF over approx 20 years as someone respected, trusted, and esteemed. As the wife of the future King of England, and the mother to the next one, she has done the work with humility, dedication, a willingness to learn, and a true focus on uplifting others. She has proven she can last the distance, and can hold her own whether she’s in a diplomatic type role across countries; playing tennis with US Open Champion Emma Raducana; bringing the community and experts together over ten years and introducing the Early Years initiative; capturing a historical moment and connecting members of the community during a worldwide pandemic with the national Hold Still project and book; and humbly sharing her solid piano skills in accompaniment to UK’s Tom Walker, creating a moment where people can acknowledge those who can’t be with them at Christmas. Wishing Catherine a wonderful 40th birthday. Edited to just reformat the text.

Sometimes people come along that are meant for certain roles in life, this role was Catherine's calling and we can all see why. Catherine is a person who oozes not only class but style and warmth. There must be times when her and William disagree or have arguments, at the end of the day it's life and it happens to the best of us in all types of relationships, but the world never hears about it, she deals with this role like a lady should and I wish her and her family the very best. So far she hasn't really put a foot wrong, this is how a Duchess behaves. Happy birthday 🎈

Catherine will one day be the Queen Consort to King William; there’s a subtle difference from calling her the future queen of England. She’s doing a beautiful job in every role she tackles. I have great respect for her.
