Family means everything to the Princess of Wales.

Prince William's wife is a very proud mother to their three children, Prince George, nine, Princess Charlotte, seven, and four-year-old Prince Louis.

But she is also incredibly close to her family, the Middletons. Meet the clan in our video below!

Meet The Middletons

Kate, 41, is the eldest of three children born to Carole and Michael, and has a tight bond with both parents as well as her siblings, Pippa, 39, and James.

So, she will be excited to celebrate a special event this weekend, when her younger brother turns 36 on Saturday 15 April.

"All the family came to say their goodbyes. I can't speak for them but I believe she influenced their lives too," he wrote. "Lupo, Catherine and William's dog, was one of Ella's puppies. My sister Pippa and her husband have a pup from Ella, as do other family members."

After Ella's passing, James attended therapy to get through the challenging time—and his sisters supported him there, too.

"My sisters came to some of my therapy sessions. They've always been there during difficult times and they were at my side during the hardest of times as well. For that, I am forever grateful," he wrote.
