Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge will be celebrating her milestone 40th birthday on January 9. The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to mark the occasion with yet another family day after she already had to renounce a party last year due to the ongoing pandemic. But royal biographer Ingrid Seward suggested the royal may simply delay the celebrations to have a “joint party” with husband Prince William later in the year.

Prince William will also be turning 40 this year, with his birthday on June 21.

Speaking to True Royalty’s Royal Beat, Ms Seward said: “I think it will be low-key this weekend, fairly low-key.

“And then later in the year, probably after the Platinum Jubilee celebrations are over, she and William, whose birthday is June 21, will have a joint party.

“And really celebrate then.”

According to royal commentator Neil Sean, before the reintroduction of restrictions in December, the Duke of Cambridge had been hoping to throw a special party for the Duchess. 

Mr Sean said: “According to good sources the problem that Catherine has is that Prince William wanted to organise a big bash.

“The bigger problem is this, it’s two-fold.

“Prince William had planned the initial stages of a big party, coming up next year, but the problem of ongoing measures, lockdowns, it’s very difficult to organise anything.”

He added: “We recently saw Her Majesty the Queen plan all of Christmas at Sandringham.

“Can you imagine? She’s spent ages wrapping presents putting them around the tree, getting the food in.

“Lots of preparation go into these things and then they’re cancelled at the last minute.

“Of course, the bigger problem is Prince William can’t really organise that type of party, but it might come as a blessing.”

A royal insider suggested to The Mirror the Duchess will for now “celebrate privately with her family.”

They said: “It’s very much a scaled-down occasion this year for the Duchess, who will celebrate privately with her family.

“Of course, she is mindful of the current situation.

“She will be surrounded by loved-ones and that’s all that matters.”
