Kate & Wills' East Asia Tour
Relive the royals' best moments from their Jubilee trip.
In her first full year as a member of the royal family, Kate Middleton hit many high marks.

From the second she said “I do” to Prince William at their April 2011 wedding, royal-watchers had all eyes on Middleton. And from her and William’s Diamond Jubilee tour — in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th anniversary on the throne — to supporting Team Great Britain in the Olympics Games, to celebrate her first wedding anniversary, the Duchess of Cambridge had many memorable moments in 2012.

What were some of the highlights?

Middleton marked her most buzzed-about moment when the palace announced the royal couple are expecting their first child together.

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting a baby,” read the statement released early December. “The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Harry and members of both families are delighted with the news.”

Like any star in the spotlight, though, the Duchess suffered through some lowlights in 2012 — namely, when European magazines printed topless photos of her sunbathing while on vacation with Prince William at a private chateau in the South of France.

But Middleton’s headline-making moments weren’t necessarily the most unforgettable. Celebuzz is counting down the top five highlights from the Duchess’ past 12 months.

Watch the video above. What do you consider Kate Middleton’s most memorable moment? Weigh in below.
