There’s no question that in 2018, the royal style spotlight was heavily fixed on Meghan, Duchess of Sussex ― she did have a high-profile wedding and a pregnancy announcement ― but Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was out there serving up plenty of fashion inspiration, too.

Today, on the royal’s 37th birthday, we’re taking a look back at all the stunning style moments she gave us in 2018. For instance, there was the gorgeous tulle gown she wore for a Christmas party in December, the regal blue Alexander McQueen gown she paired with Princess Diana’s favorite tiara in October, and of course, the striking printed Erdem dress she wore during her visit to Sweden. And those are only a few.

Below, check out even more of our favorite outfits worn by the duchess over the past 12 months:
