London [UK], As she turned 39 years old on Saturday, it became apparent that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, who was once merely a mild-mannered college graduate, is ready for her role as the future Queen.
According to E! News after almost a decade of officially accepting her post, Kate has more than proved her worth as a senior royal while deftly filling the void left by Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle's swift departure.
She has carved out her space in the areas of early education, child development and mental health awareness, proving she's ready to embrace the role that awaits her in the future.
For years she was viewed as Prince William's soft-spoken, mild-mannered college sweetheart. But now after a decade she's done with that and is committing herself to foster real change in the nation and the world at large by mastering the art of the walkabout.
