Duchess Kate: She looked so cute as a child

To mark Carole Middleton's 67th birthday on Jan. 31, her company shared a sweet photo on Instagram. You can see Carole standing in the middle and beaming at the camera. She is surrounded by children, one of whom is Kate.

Today's Duchess can be seen on the far right. With a party hat on her head and a horn in her mouth, she seems to be having quite a bit of fun.

At the time, Kate wore her hair shoulder-length and with bangs. She looks adorable in a cozy sweater and collared shirt.
