While Prince William is celebrating his 40th birthday today, his wife celebrated her milestone birthday six months ago - albeit under corona conditions. Now the royal couple wants to celebrate the new phase of life together in the summer.
Prince William celebrates his 40th birthday this Tuesday. His wife, Duchess Kate, was able to enjoy her special day on January 9th. Because she was only able to celebrate in a very small circle because of Corona, the two will now celebrate the jubilee at a joint party in the summer at Windsor Castle or Sandringham.
As the "Mirror" further reports, citing royal circles, the Duke and Duchess will "celebrate their milestone birthdays in style", which corresponds to a historical family tradition in which several members celebrate their big celebrations together.
A similar royal celebration, as expected this summer, was held at Windsor Castle in June 2000 when the family celebrated Prince William's 18th birthday, Princess Anne's 50th, Princess Margaret's 70th and Princess Margaret's 40th. assembled by Prince Andrew.
Whether William's grandmother will be present at the party at one of her estates remains to be seen. The 96-year-old Queen will only confirm her possible attendance on the day of the party, according to the announcement. The reason for this should be their mobility problems. In recent months, they have repeatedly forced them not to personally attend royal appearances.
The Queen wished her grandson a happy birthday this morning. She posted seven photos on her Instagram account. "Happy 40th birthday to the Duke of Cambridge!" the comment begins. The Queen also shares family details and memories of the day Prince Charles' son was born. "Prince William Arthur Philip Louis is the elder son of the Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales. He was born at 9.03pm on 21 June 1982 at St Mary's Hospital, Paddington, London," read the statement. "A notice on the gates of Buckingham Palace" announced that William weighed just over 3,200 grams.
Two of the photos show the jubilee alone, in the other photos he can be seen at different ages and on different official occasions together with his grandmother. All photos have one thing in common: Prince William and Queen Elizabeth II laugh, smile or giggle in the happy show.
