Taken outside in the sun, Carole is wearing a very chic shirt dress that we would definitely wear now, and she and Kate have matching bangs in their black hair.

Dating back to 1989, the Duchess of Cambridge would have been just seven in the photo, while sister Pippa, five, and baby James just two, sported a cute polka-dot party hat.

Party Pieces had started two years prior, founded in the Middletons’ shed in 1987, when Carole couldn’t find the party supplies she wanted for her children’s parties. A resounding success, the company continues to go from strength to strength over 30 years later, and the kids have certainly grown a lot too.

We love this happy family moment captured on film.

Happy Birthday Carol!
