Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Kate) is the wife of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Following his father, William is second in line to succeed his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, as monarch of the United Kingdome.
Middleton grew up in Chapel Row, England. She studied art history in Scotland where she met William in 2001. Even though she was a commoner, William fell in love with her; usually, royalty in England marry other people with titles. Their engagement was announced on 16 November 2010, and she attended many high-profile royal events before they were married at Westminster Abbey.
Kate has had a major impact upon British and American fashion which has been termed the "Kate Middleton effect", and in 2012 was selected as one of the "Most Influential People in the World" by Time magazine. She is perhaps the most photographed woman in the world. Today Kate is involved in charity work and caring for her young son.
