Since becoming a fully fledged member of the royal family, the Duchess of Cambridge’s fashion choices have been analysed to the minute detail. And she’s been awarded a A Star for style.

Whatever Kate is photographed wearing you can be sure it’s sold out within hours, as women desperately try to copy her style. From high street fashion and Zara, to high end bespoke designs by Alexander McQueen, Kate has risen to the task and has become an inspiration for young and old, as she’s represented Queen and country at home and abroad.

Not veering too far from her signature style – knee-length dress or jacket/skirt combo – Kate has shown that she can wear military chic as well as she wears sportswear and dazzling gala dresses.

In 2013 it’s not so much Pippa’s bum, than Kate’s bump that will receive attention. As the royal bump grows, we’re sure the Duchess will continue to delight and surprise us in her fashion choices.

Here are 31 of Kate’s royal engagement looks, starting with… her very own engagement announcement to Prince William.

Happy Birthday Kate!
