In just a few weeks, winter will have officially begun. While it seems like autumn had more rain than snow, we're not ones to complain -- especially with how bad the weather is usually known to be across the pond. It's a beautiful place, but it's plain to see that even locals are fed up with how little sun they get to soak in this time of year. Instead, they're typically soaking in rain. This is a big problem for a lot of people who'd love to vacation there, but if there's one person who isn't bothered by it, it's Kate Middleton. In fact, it seems like the whole royal family wades through the weather, no matter how bad it is. To the Duchess of Cambridge, though, is there really even such a thing as "bad weather"?

We wouldn't be able to tell if Kate is bothered by the rain, what with her positive demeanor about everything. It's an attitude to be expected of someone so elegant and graceful. After all, even if Kate did hate the rain, it wouldn't stop her from everything she has to do on a daily basis. Whether it's visiting fans or attending charity events with Prince William, nothing would keep Kate away from performing her royal duties as the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate's optimistic attitude makes us want to enjoy all types of weather more -- even the rain. Hey, it's part of life! We should all embrace it like she does. Considering how much she and the Duke of Cambridge love the environment, it makes sense that they would love nature in all its forms -- even if it happens to spoil a royal afternoon tea or two.
