How Kate Middleton Spent Her 37th Birthday

Not the way you'd expect

When you’re husband is set to be the heir to the British throne, you’d no doubt expect to ring in your birthday in style. Not for Kate Middleton, however, who opted for a rather low-key affair for her 37th birthday celebrations yesterday. 

Vanity Fair reports the Duchess of Cambridge chose a rather special event, a tea party at Kensington Palace with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

“Kate’s not into big birthday celebrations, but George and Charlotte adore birthday cake, so there will be a special tea party at the Palace with candles and presents,” a source told the publication.

For Prince William though, royal duty called.

The Duke of Cambridge had a morning tea with this new patronage, the London’s Air Ambulance charity. The Duke, a former air ambulance pilot himself, was recently named a patron of the charity’s 30th anniversary campaign.

But, Wills did manage to sneak in a tiny reference to his wife

When he was presented with a card for his wife during his visit today, he replied, “Well done for remembering,” then added, “I did remember this morning, so that was okay!” according to People.

The response prompted the room to giggle.

Kate’s last big birthday celebration was over six years ago, when the Duchess turned 31. 

The royal went out with William, her parents, and her brother and sister to see a Cirque de Soleil show at the Royal Albert Hall. Kate was pregnant with Prince George then.

But since George’s birth, Kate has celebrated her birthday privately in the comfort of her home.

A source told E! News that last year Kate spent her 36th birthday “privately with William and the children. It’s just a quiet celebration at home. No big party.”
