It's not often we get to see the Duchess of Cambridge outside of her chic coats and fascinators, but her off-duty looks are our favourite. Not only does she know just how to style a Breton top or a pair of sneakers, but she reminds us that she's (almost) just like us.
In 2011, when Kate Middleton married Prince William she created a new generation of royalists and a huge dose of that power lay in her ability to make us feel like she’s one of us. The 32-year-old opted for an unashamedly high street dress for her engagement shoot in 2010 and this week she wore an ME+EM striped top to a polo game, which she previously wore during her royal tour of Australia (we all have that favourite top we wear time and time again, don't we?).
Here's a toast to a casual and fascinator-free Kate Middleton...
