Happy 32nd birthday, Kate Middleton!

Our favorite royal has come a long way from her time as a sweet-faced 5-year-old (pictured). Kate had a pretty big year in 2013 with the birth of son (and future king) Prince George in July, and today, motherhood definitely agrees with the trend-setting Duchess of Cambridge. During her pregnancy, Kate had style lovers drooling over her maternity fashion, which included demure dresses, glamorous gowns and covetable coats, all of which earned her a spot on InStyle’s Style 100 for 2013.

Since George’s arrival, the former accessories buyer has continued to wow—wearing a floor-length pale gold sequin Jenny Packham gown for her first official post-baby appearance, and a cream ruffled Alexander McQueen suit paired with a rose-adorned Jane Taylor fascinator for her son’s royal christening.

In honor of Kate’s birthday, look back at her memorable year with her top best looks from 2013.
