There's a million reasons to love Kate Middleton. She's gorgeous, she's regal and she uses her position to fight for critical causes like the importance of mental health issues — yet somehow she's still manages to stay totally relatable. 

Maybe it's because, just like most of the rest of us, she battles body shamers. And she has morning sickness that she fights off with her favorite cookies. Or maybe it's because she's just so darn sweet and graceful, we could totally picture sitting down to have tea with her at a local coffee shop. 

One thing we can't relate to? How utterly perfect she is in the fashion arena. Seriously, does this woman every have an off day? Whether she's releasing a statement with the Queen or going for a casual stroll with her husband, Kate always looks impeccable. 

Here is definitive evidence that proves that when it comes to style, Kate Middleton can do no wrong.
