  • Last week, Kate Middleton turned 37, and reportedly kept her birthday celebrations low key by having a tea party with her husband Prince William, and children Princes Louis and George and Princess Charlotte.

    Except when you’re a royal, low key isn’t really a thing, is it? Which is why the Duchess apparently had a second, earlier celebration outside of London.

    According to royal correspondents Emily Andrews and Omid Scobie, who host the podcast On Heir, Kate and William had a private party last Sunday at the couple’s country estate, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.

    Whilst we don’t know how many people were there, Prince Louis’ godmother Laura Meade, and Prince George’s godmother Emilia Jardine Patterson were said to both be in attendance.

    Seeing as Patterson is an old uni friend of Kate’s, we wouldn’t be surprised if she invited a few other old friends too.

    You know what they say, there ain’t no party like a royal party.
