Happy birthday to our favourite duchess, Catherine (née Kate Middleton), who turns 33 on Friday, Jan. 9!

We've forgiven you for marrying the first royal we ever thought we had a chance with, and completely understand your love of dress coats. Oh, and thank you for giving us those sneak peeks into your adorable son Prince George's life and apparently attempting to get him to meet Santa.

You're probably getting feted plenty on your big day already, so we thought we'd celebrate one of the most down-to-earth things about you: your smile. Because let's face it, if we were to somehow find ourselves in the royal family, we'd want to have as much fun as it looks like you're having.

Cheers to you, HRH!
