This Tuesday, 21, Prince William celebrates 40 years, and Queen Elizabeth II gave a very generous gift to her grandson, the eldest of Mrs. Dee and Prince Charles. This gift also includes William’s wife, Kate Middleton.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Queen has given permission for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to hold a joint 40th birthday party at one of their royal residences. William got permission to have the party at his grandmother’s house in Windsor Castle or Sandringham Estate later this summer, that is, until the end of September.
Buckingham Palace posted on Instagram three photos of Prince William and the caption included the following description: “Happy 40th birthday to the Duke of Cambridge! Prince William Arthur Philip Louis is the eldest son of the Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales. He was born at 9:03pm on June 21, 1982 in a hospital St. Mary’s, Paddington, London. A flyer posted on the gates of Buckingham Palace announced that he weighed 3.3 kg.
Kate Middleton was included in the festivities after her plans to celebrate her 40th birthday, which she completed in January of this year, were canceled due to an increase in Covid-19 cases in the UK.
No further details have been reported, but it is understood that the 96-year-old Queen will decide whether to attend on the day of the party due to her mobility issues that have prevented her from attending the events recently.
We know that royals have a special way of celebrating their birthdays on special dates. One such lavish party was the Ball of Decades at Windsor Castle in June 2000 to celebrate Prince Andrew’s fortieth birthday, Princess Anne’s fiftieth, and Princess Margaret’s seventieth, and Prince William’s eighteenth birthdays.
