Australian tabloid Woman's Day didn't get the memo that Kate Middleton has officially reached peak beauty, trying to make her even more attractive, but miserably failing. The Duchess of Cambridge appears on the cover with lightened eyes, defined cheeks, and darker lips, making her look much older than she is. Do everyone a favor and don't mess with Kate's royal face.
