Carole Middleton and son James arrive at Will and Kate’s wedding
The Duchess of Cambridge’s mother opened up on having her big day during lockdown in a new post on her family business Party Pieces’ Instagram. Carole joked it was up to her husband Michael Middleton, 71, to help her celebrate the occasion.
Kate’s mother insisted birthdays under lockdown can still be “full of surprises” with “a little effort”.
In the post, Carole says: “If, like me, your birthday falls during the cold, dark days of winter, your loved ones can still make the day full of surprises.
“Our customers have been transforming their surroundings with our sparkly backdrops and bright balloons for small ‘at-home’ parties for their household.
“It may not be how we imagined we would be celebrating, but a little effort can still lift the spirits and bring some joy.

Carole set up Party Pieces from a garden shed in 1987 after not being able to find what she wanted on the high street.
In 1989 it moved to a new headquarters in Hungerford.
The business’s growth led to another move in 1993 to Childs Court Farm in Yattendon.
In 2019, Party Pieces celebrated its 30th anniversary.
