The Queen will host a joint 40th birthday party for Prince William and Kate Middleton this summer, the Sun newspaper reveals. The Duke of Cambridge, who celebrates his 40th birthday on Tuesday, has reportedly been given the green light to host a party at Windsor Castle or Sandringham Estate.
Royal sources told the Mirror that it had been agreed that he and Kate, who celebrated her 40th birthday in January, should celebrate their birthdays in style. Last winter, because of restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic, no party was organized for the Duchess of Cambridge. She celebrated her birthday with her 3 children and her husband in their residence of Anmer Hall.
The Queen, 96, could join them and other members of the royal family, if she feels well. A palace source told the Mirror that the monarch, who in recent months has suffered from mobility problems, will only confirm her presence on the day of the party.
Very few details have been released about the festivities. Only one thing is certain. Prince Charles and Camilla will be there. They are very close to the Cambridge.
Prince William has celebrated joint birthdays in the past, sharing his 18th birthday with Prince Andrew's 40th, Princess Anne's 50th and Princess Margaret's 70th.
