Kate the cutie pie!

She's going to be British royalty in less than 8 weeks, but Kate Middleton has evidently had star quality her whole life.

Case in point: On Monday, the official Royal Wedding website released new personal family album pics of Middleton, revealing Prince William's 29-year-old fiancee as an adorable little girl.

In one pic, a 3-year-old Middleton goes climbing while on holiday in England's Lake District. In another, the future Princess shows off her trademark dimples and shy grin in a shot taken when she was 5.

Also new on the site: An informative biography of "Catherine Middleton," which gives new details on her upbringing and more.

Lesser-known revelations? Catherine Elizabeth Middleton lived with her family in Amman, Jordan (where her father was employed) from ages 2 to 4. As an athletic student, she excelled in hockey, netball, crew, and even the high jump.

Her hobbies these days? Recreational sports such as hill walking, tennis, swimming, sailing and the arts (photography and painting).
