USA TODAY - Happy birthday, Duchess Kate! This past year proved to be a big one, so 2014 sure has a lot to live up to for this royal mum.
Let's recap highlights from Kate's eventful 2013:
Royal baby watch
Kate started showing a small baby bump in February 2013 after her pregnancy was made public in December 2012. She wore chic and modern designer clothes throughout the pregnancy and attended dozens of public events. Heavenly, for royal watchers!
The proud couple showed George Alexander Louis off to the world July 25. Women applauded Kate for not hiding her post-childbirth bump under her polka-dot dress. Go, Kate!
One month after giving birth, Kate returned to her stunningly thin figure.
Prince George baptized
The 3-month-old royal baby was christened Oct. 23 and officially welcomed into the Church of England as Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge.
Prince George wore a handmade replica of the christening gown first worn by little Princess Victoria in 1841 and every royal baby up to 2008.
Since then, Kate's focused on all the delightful responsibilities associated with being a mom.
