Britain’s Princess Kate Middleton turns 40 today and the British royals are celebrating with some new photos.
Fashion photographer Paolo Roversi captured the photos of the Duchess of Cambridge. The princess wears several dresses designed by Alexander McQueen. The photos will take a small trip with the exhibits in Berkshire, St Andrews and Anglesey.
These three places have a special meaning for Middleton: she grew up in Berkshire, in St Andrews, went to university and met Prince William. The couple lived in Anglesey before their wedding. The photographs will later be placed in the National Portrait Gallery in London.
The Italian photographer says he kept the photos as natural as possible. “I didn’t want to portray her as a Duchess, but I wanted to portray her as pure and contemporary as possible,” he says in a conversation with the Italian newspaper. Corriere della Sera. Roversi took about 250 photos, almost all of them in black and white. In the end, three were chosen.
Hundreds of people leave a message on the Internet for Prince William’s wife, who, according to British media, will not celebrate her birthday due to the Corona virus.
The royal family themselves can’t be left behind either. The congratulations were shared on the family’s public account, which is mainly used for updates about Queen Elizabeth, as did the page of Clarence House, Prince Charles and Camilla’s residence.
Court has shared four photos of the Queen with Kate Middleton, including one from June last year. Then, at the G7 summit meeting, Elizabeth cut a cake with a ceremonial sword in front of Catherine and Camilla.
