Happy Birthday Kate! The Duchess of Cambridge turns 31 today, capping a remarkable year in the life of the young royal.
In the past 12 months, she's announced her pregnancy, toured the world with her husband Prince William and even been the subject of a topless scandal (ooo-er!).

Happy Birthday Kate!
