  • But what will she get this year?

    Today marks Kate Middleton’s birthday, with the Duchess of Cambridge turning 37, receiving messages of love from royal family members and fans.

    36 has been a big year for the Duchess. Giving birth to a baby prince and introducing him to the world hours later in heels and perfect make up would be enough. But she has also had Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding, her sister Pippa’s baby arrival and her return to royal duties to deal with too.

    Put simply – Kate Middleton deserves to be spoilt today, and we have no doubt that she will be.

    There is no news yet as to how the Cambridges will be celebrating, but due to the London Air Ambulance’s 30th anniversary, Prince William will be attending an official event for at least part of the day.

    The question on everyone’s lips instead is what the Duchess of Cambridge will receive in the way of presents, with the future King boasting a good track record in terms of gift giving.

    In fact, even before becoming a royal, she had a growing jewellery collection.

    The now Duchess reportedly received a pearl and garnet rose-gold victorian ring from Wills while they were dating, and on their first Christmas together as a married couple, he gave her a pair of green amethyst earrings by Kiki McDonough, one of her favourite jewellery designers.

    The couple’s third wedding anniversary was also particularly special, with William giving Kate a Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch, and don’t even get us started on her push presents from the future King!

    Kate received an eternity band after Prince George’s birth, a pair of tourmaline, amethyst, and diamond earrings after welcoming Princess Charlotte, and a rumoured Citrine ring upon the birth of Prince Louis, although some believe that the ring was already in her collection.

    Either way, what will Kate be receiving today? It looks like we’ll have to wait and see.
