Let's be frank here: Kate Middleton leads an incredibly charmed life, but, well ... she doesn't always seem like she'd be the most fun person to go out with for a drink. Sure, she seems smart and interesting and like she gets it, but how cray does she get? Living in the spotlight of the royal family can't be easy, and obviously she has an image to maintain. But come on, Katie, doesn't a princess let loose once in a while?

After a little digging, it turns out: Yes. Yes, the duchess does let her gorgeously shiny hair down from time to time. And when she does it's amazing. Also, it makes us want to be her BFF all the more. (Be our bestie, Kate? Please? We swear, we are really, really cool.)

    It's hard to imagine Kate Middleton with an iPhone, never mind on social media. But buried somewhere she must have a super private Instagram or Snapchat account. We could totally send DMs to each other. Do you like GIFs, Kate?

  • That Time She Was an 1980s Rollergirl

    Sure, this was way before she married Prince William, but it's proof that she knows how to cut loose sometimes. Wonder if she can skate backwards? We can teach you, Kate. Like, it's just something best friends do.
