She has the grace, the face, the poise, the upper-middle-class upbringing. She probably knew all the curtseying rules before she had to and never stepped a foot wrong with the Queen. But she hasn't been a Duchess her whole life, and was actually born into a fairly normal family, daughter of an air hostess and flight dispatcher. Okay, yes, her dad Michael Middleton had links to aristocracy pretty much his whole life and his family had a coat of arms, but mother Carole Goldsmith was the daughter of a builder and attended local state schools. So by extension, Kate was born half posh, half normal.

Here are a few highlights from Kate Middleton's past which you probably never knew about. She lived in the Middle East as a child Kate was born in the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading in 1982 but didn't stay long in England, as she was quickly whisked off to the Middle East by her parents aged two. From age two to four, Kate lived in Amman in Jordan because her father was stationed there as part of his job at British Airways. During this time, Kate attended an English language pre-school. She and her family returned in September 1986, just in time for her to attend primary school.

St Andrews wasn't just her uni - it was her church and her primary school Never has a person had SUCH fondness for the name St Andrews as Kate Middleton. You probably know by now that she attended the University of St Andrews, as this is where she met Prince William. But did you know she was also baptised and educated at St Andrews?

Entirely different places, of course, but what a coincidence. So Kate was born on January 9, 1982 (one day before me, no big deal, Capricorn queens) and baptised on June 20, 1982 at a local parish church called, you got it, St Andrews. Then, when she was four years old, she was enrolled at a private school in Berkshire called - no, I'm not kidding - St Andrew's School. She also attended Downe House School and Marlborough College, but part boarded at St Andrew's school as well. And finally, at the grand old age of 18 she completed the hat trick by ticking off the third and final St Andrew's - her alma mater. She took a 'gap yah', like every other middle class home counties girl, before going to uni Kate actually took a year out before St Andrews numero tres and went to Chile to work for sustainable development charity Raleigh International. Raleigh International works in remote, rural areas and helps to improve people's access to safe water and sanitation, builds community resilience, and aims to sustainably manage natural resources and aid the protection of vulnerable environments. As well as this, Kate went to Italy for a bit to study at the British Institute in Florence. Very bougie.
