Kate Middleton’s Sweetest Mom Moments, in Honor of Her 37th Birthday
These are Some of the Duchess's Cutest Moments with her Kids
Prince George’s Debut
Lupo, the family's cocker spaniel, and Tilly (a Middleton family pet) helped the young couple George to the world back in 2013.
Nodding to History
Kate took a sartorial page out of her late mother-in-law Princess Diana’s book for George’s very first public appearance outside the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's hospital in London in 2013.
The Duchess couldn’t help but beam as toddler George came up close and personal with a beautiful monarch butterfly on dad William’s hand. (You might notice the damp spit up patch on her left shoulder.)
Mom to All
Kate doesn’t just play mom to her own kids— even baby animals get the loving treatment!
On the Move
Even royals find themselves chasing after their little ones!
A Shoulder to Cry On
You never know when a meltdown might happen—even when the world is watching. Here, the Duchess of Cambridge comforts daughter Charlotte during the Trooping the Color in 2018.
Here she takes a second during President Obama’s official 2016 visit to Kensington Palace to chat with George, who happens to be sitting on the sweetest rocking horse.

A Reassuring Presence
Initially, Prince George was spooked by the noise of the helicopters during a visit at the Royal International Air Tattoo. A few reassuring words for mom (and a pair of noise-canceling headphones) was all it took for George to feel better.
The Subtle Enforcer
Kate wasn’t having it when George, Charlotte and the other young attendants threatened to disrupt her sister Pippa’s wedding. We know a few Southern mamas who would be very impressed by that firm yet subtle “shh!”
Prince Louis’ Debut
Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is what a proud mama looks like.
Here, the Duchess encourages Charlotte to smile to the photographers assembled to document the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Talk about an adorable photo op!
