Duchess Kate (née Middleton) has no trouble looking gorgeous every day of the year, but on Christmas, the mom of three always steps her royal fashion up a notch. With the 2020 holiday season in full swing, what better way to celebrate than by revisiting all of Kate’s most stylish looks over the years?
The Duchess of Cambridge first joined the royal family’s festivities in December 2011, eight months after she tied the knot with husband Prince William in April of that year. For the occasion, Kate looked captivating in an all-burgundy ensemble.
For their second Christmas together in 2012, the brunette beauty and the Duke of Cambridge chose to spend December 25 with the Middletons. The lovebirds rang in the joyful holiday with her mom, Carole Middleton; dad, Michael Middleton; and siblings, Pippa Middleton and James Middleton.
Since then, however, the royal duo have celebrated nearly every Christmas with Queen Elizabeth and the royal family at the monarch’s famed Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England. Fortunately for fans, Kate’s picture-perfect Christmas Day outfits just keep getting better and better!
Aside from the beloved royal’s enviable style, one of the best parts of Kate and William’s huge Christmas extravaganza is getting to see the look of joy on the faces of their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. Each year, the couple will give fans a glimpse inside their life at home to commemorate the holiday.
“Merry Christmas!” Kate and Will wrote alongside a black and white photo of the proud dad with George, Charlotte and Louis, which was taken by the duchess, via Instagram in December 2019. “We wish all our followers a very happy and relaxing Christmas Day.”
We bet the Cambridges can’t wait to celebrate this year’s upcoming holiday, but Christmas 2020 is going to look a little different for the royal family. Considering Elizabeth canceled her annual celebration at Sandringham, Buckingham Palace announced in early December, fans are wondering how Kate and Will are going to spend the holiday.
Fortunately, it seems Her Majesty is “coming up with a plan B,” an insider told Closer Weekly. Because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, royal aides were “warning” Elizabeth that holding the large event could be a very bad idea.
Even though she “would love [nothing] more than to see her family reunite,” the queen is taking the COVID-19 outbreak very seriously. “She’s [planning] some sort of smaller gathering with very close family,” the source explained.
While we wait to see how the royals honor Christmas 2020, scroll through the gallery below to see all of Kate’s best holiday outfits over the years!
