The Duchess of Cambridge could totally have been a model if she wasn't destined for more regal things. We've all seen her catwalk skills at a university fashion show, but now another gem from her modeling days has surfaced, and yes; it's adorable.

Kate's mum Carole Middleton has been sharing some throwback pictures from the family's business, Party Pieces, to mark 30 years of existence. She wrote on the company's website:

"It is still very much a family business today, and over the years all my children have played a huge part in it from modeling for the catalogue to developing new categories for the brand."

The image she shared shows Duchess Kate with a blower and party hat, alongside her younger siblings Pippa and James.


James was such a hit that he was given a starring role in a brochure a few years later.

Party Pieces was established in 1987, when the family returned to the UK after three years in Jordan so that Catherine could attend school here. Carol explained:

"At that time there was very little partyware available on the high street, and being a mum who was new to hosting children's parties, finding the simplest of things like party bags was a real challenge. I produced a little flyer which I circulated in local playgroups and very soon I was using our garden shed as a picking/packing room and office."

Carol went on to share how all three of her children helped create the brand, each assisting in different ways. "James established our personalized cakes, Catherine started the 1st birthday side of the business, and Pippa developed the Party Pieces blog."

What a talented bunch, eh?
