It's been a banner year for Kate Middleton. She married Prince William in a fairytale wedding. She travelled the world (trips which included a pit-stop in Canada). She quickly became a style icon known for making savvy and smart sartorial decisions. And now she's set to celebrate her 30th birthday.

In honour of the Duchess of Cambridge -- who will reportedly ring in her big day today with a "low-key and private" party -- we thought we'd take a look back at the many reasons we love her.

Join in the Kate love-fest, and let us know why you're fond of her Twitter.
