Duke of Cambridge turns 35 in year when he becomes full-time royal

Wearing a very pretty white lace Alexander McQueen frock, the Duchess appeared to be hardly breaking a sweat in the 31-degree heat.

Kate's dress featured a high neckline, sheer sleeves, a belted waist, and a bell-shirt that skimmed just below the knee. Still, it's not her actual birthday even though celebrations have been taking place in the United Kingdom most of the year.

William's and Kate's first priority has been to shield their children, George and Charlotte, from the media so they can enjoy as normal a childhood as possible. The Queen had 332 engagements, Prince Philip with 219 and Prince William at 188.

During the 1851 Trust event, Kate Middleton was spotted talking to a group of children, reports the Daily Mail. Get HELLO!

The public appetite for this private side of the royals is undeniable but Harry says it's important not to "dilute the magic". Reason being Sir Ben Ainslie wasn't there to sail.

As a result 96-year-old will miss the state opening of Parliament but is reported to be in good spirits.

The two got to interact via video. The Duke and Duchess, in 2011, also announced a gift fund held by The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry which provided their fans and well-wishers to donate money to charities as a wedding gift, and this fund supported 26 charities.

William and Kate have also taken the helm of several patronages recently passed onto them by Queen Elizabeth, 91. It's no wonder why. "He often pops into their apartment at Kensington Palace, where she cooks him a meal - roast chicken is reportedly a particular favorite".

The Duke of 34 is the epitome of a mature and responsible young man. People have been taking notice. The two were spotted bursting out into laughter after, and even Prince William couldn't help but join in. But, it's still odd.

William has been stepping up his royal duties and supporting his grandmother as a changing of the guard takes place.
