Kate's big honor that no Royal has ever received before her
Art is highly valued in the world and most people appreciate it. The most amazing aspect of it is that anything, whether beautiful or ugly, can be considered art.
Kate Middleton knows it very well. When the former art student met Prince William in college, she probably didn't imagine that she would end up marrying him years later, in 2011.
But she did, and one of the first things that she said about her new status was that she would use it to promote art and give it a new light, as reported by Uplifting Today.
The 36-year-old has always been very passionate about every aspect connect to art, especially the visual ones, such as photography and design. This passion led her to be given an honor never seen been before.

It was announced, through Kensington Palace's official Twitter account, that the Duchess of Cambridge would become the first Royal Patron of the Victoria and Albert Museum.
According to the source, Middleton has an art degree in History of Art from St. Andrews University, which she never had the opportunity to put to good use, at least until now.
The Victoria and Albert Museum, founded by Queen Victoria in 1852, is very famous; in fact, it is known on a worldwide scale for being the leader of art, design, performance and education.
As reported by Uplifting Today, it was originally built to allow the masses to enjoy art and to inspire other artists to contribute to the cause. The idea was to spread the notion of art as much as possible.
The museum, also known as the V&A, in London, is currently the biggest museum regarding decorative arts and design. It is home to a collection of over 2.3 million objects and it attracts hordes and hordes of tourists every single year.
