The Royal Family has shared beautiful images to mark the Duchess of Cambridge's milestone birthday.

Kate Middleton turns 40 today and celebrations appear to be in full swing to mark the Duchess' special day. Taking to social media, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Instagram account shared two new pictures of her alongside captions marking her birthday.

The Duchess looks radiant in both images, taken by renowned photographer Paolo Roversi. It has been revealed that these pictures, alongside a third portrait, will be exhibited at The National Portrait Gallery - of which Kate is a patron. Alongside the images, a caption reads: "The three new portraits which have been released to mark the occasion will be shown in the community in three meaningful places: Berkshire, St Andrews, and Anglesey, as part of the @NationalPortraitGallery nationwide ‘Coming Home’ exhibition, ahead of the Gallery reopening in 2023."

On her 40th birthday, it would be hard not to reflect on all the Duchess has enjoyed and achieved over the last decade. After marrying Prince William in 2011, the couple proceeded to welcome Prince George in 2013, Princess Charlotte in 2015 and, most recently, Prince Louis in 2018.

Kate has also undertaken a host of royal duties, from attending charity occasions to sporting events. Most recently, the Duchess hosted her own carol concert at Westminster Abbey, where she played the piano and listened to the inspiring stories of many of the attendees.

We're wishing the Duchess of Cambridge a very happy birthday!
