Welcome to age 31, Kate Middleton. You wear it beautifully. And if there's something we learned over the past year with her majesty, it's that "perfect Princess" can mean a lot of things. It can mean, in no particular order, playing field hockey in heels, eating cookies, letting the south Asian humidity get the best of your hair care routine, managing to look tip-top despite acute morning sickness hospitalization, dancing in honor of someone else's country, and screaming at the top of your lungs in honor of your own.
