Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is among the most recognizable people in the world. She’s but it’s not often the 38-year-old is seen alongside her siblings, 36-year-old Philippa “Pippa,” and 32-year-old James. Ahead, check out rarely seen photographs of Catherine with her younger sister and brother.
The Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t come from royalty like her husband of nearly nine years, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. She grew up a commoner, albeit a well-off one thanks to the lucrative party-planning business founded by her parents Carole and Michael , but a non-royal just the same.
Pippa first caught the world’s attention at William and Catherine’s 2011 royal wedding. These days she keeps a low profile, spending time with her husband, James Matthews, and one-year-old son , Arthur Michael William Matthews. Meanwhile, Catherine and Pippa’s younger brother, James, grew up to be an entrepreneur like their parents.
On June 17, 2006, the now-Duchess of Cambridge attended a charity polo match in Richmond, England, with her sister.
On July 1, 2007, Catherine arrived at Wembley Stadium for a concert in memory of William’s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales with her brother, James.
When Catherine and William briefly broke up, Catherine made the rounds at plenty of London hotspots with photographers documenting her comings and goings.
One of her favorites, according to ES Insider, had been Mahiki, a Polynesian-themed club. Here’s her and Pippa smiling and laughing in a car outside Mahiki on Feb. 1, 2007.
Ahead of Catherine and William’s royal wedding, Clarence House released some previously unseen photographs of the bride. One of them included an undated snapshot of a young Catherine standing by her even younger sister, and their father, Michael, with ancient ruins in the background.
The Middleton family had once lived in Amman, Jordan, where the photograph had been taken, probably by Carole.
In 2016, the Catherine’s family joined British royals for their annual Christmas Day church service. The Duchess of Cambridge can be seen carrying a young Princess Charlotte of Cambridge, with her father, brother, and sister walking behind her.
A year later at the same event, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex would make her first big royal appearance with Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex ahead of their royal wedding in May 2018.
