Kate Middleton’s 35th birthday party wasn’t the star-studded bash the Duchess was probably hoping it to be. Instead, it looked like nothing happened at all. Sources say that Prince William did not have any plans to throw his wife a party while Kate’s brother-in-law Prince Harry snubbed her by taking a trip out of town instead.
In fact, the official Twitter account for Clarence House did not mention Kate on her birthday whatsoever. Last year, Clarence House at least acknowledged her birthday by tweeting a throwback photo of a young Kate. There were also reports that indicated Kate celebrated her 34th birthday with William, their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and of course the Middletons. Kate’s parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, along with her brother James Middleton and her sister Pippa Middleton were all on hand to celebrate her big day.
But this year it doesn’t look like Kate’s birthday was very festive. Prince Harry wasn’t even in town to celebrate with his sister-in-law Kate. Instead, sources reveal that he’s headed to Norway for a romantic winter trip with his girlfriend, Meghan Markle. Sure, Harry and Kate have always had a close relationship in the past, but now even Harry has new priorities. Sources say that Buckingham Palace could have at least sent the Duchess a nice birthday message on social media. Even Kensington Palace’s official Instagram account failed to give Kate any birthday love.
Does this mean there’s trouble for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge behind closed doors? Or does Kate simply want to be left alone? Whatever the case, Kate Middleton’s 35th birthday was one of the quietest one she’s had to date. After all, she’s in her mid-30s.
So far, Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about how Kate Middleton celebrated her birthday. After all, the British royal family has been dealing with plenty of issues lately, including Queen Elizabeth’s health concerns. Of course, no one knows what is going on except Prince William and Kate Middleton themselves. Whatever the case may be, fans know that the truth is going to come out sooner rather than later.
