New Year with Middletons
After spending Christmas in Norfolk, it is believed that William and Kate had gone to Kate's family in West Berkshire to celebrate New Year. They also celebrated their first New Year as a married couple with the Middletons ten years ago. It only seems fair as Kate has a busy year ahead, she will be celebrating her 40th birthday this January.
Reportedly, she usually spends her birthdays with her family in privacy. Meaning, this year is not going to be any different as well. It is unlikely that the duchess will hold a spectacular party. According to royal biographer Duncan Larcombe, Kate's birthday on January 9 is expected to be low-key.
Even though Kate’s birthday plans have not yet been made public, it is understood that it will be a private event. Duncan speculated and said,
Kate and William are not the sort to go away to celebrate on their own and leave the kids at home.
I think the same will apply to Kate’s birthday as it does to Christmas - it will be low key and it will be focused entirely on the family.
Meghan Markle celebrated her 40th birthday in August by releasing a glamorous comedic video with Hollywood actress Melissa McCarthy, in which she announced the establishment of a new initiative called 40x40. Kate Middleton is not expected to follow the suit and announce an extensive campaign. Duncan added,
I’d be very surprised if she does announce anything.
She’s unlikely to because, firstly, it’s just not her way and secondly because of the obvious comparisons with Meghan and this awful continuation of one-upmanship that the palace is so keen to avoid.
