It's been quite the year for the Duchess of Cambridge, hasn't it? The royal has welcomed her third child with Prince William, gained a sister-in-law and a new baby nephew! And since 2018 is drawing to a close, we thought we'd look back at Kate's best fashion moments over the past year – the 'Kate effect' remains as strong as ever, after all.

Of course, the Duchess spent the first half of the year looking elegant as ever in some of her favourite maternity brands – before returning from her break after having Prince Louis in October. And whether it was dressing her bump in a stunning Erdem gown during her royal tour of Sweden, or stepping out in Alexander McQueen at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal wedding, Kate pretty much nailed it every time, we reckon. Which is your favourite outfit of the year? Scroll down to see her greatest hits…

Kate kicked off 2018 with a royal tour of Sweden and Norway with husband Prince William in January. We loved this gorgeous Erdem midi dress she wore to an event in Stockholm – it's modern maternity dressing at it's best, right? Delicate hoop earrings and simple black heels completed the look – she even wore Princess Diana-esque blue eyeliner. Love.

For a star-studded dinner on day one of the tour, it was Erdem again, this time a floor-length floral silk gown with another high-neck silhouette. She teamed it with a Jimmy Choo clutch bag, pearl drop-earrings and her signature formal chignon.
