The Duchess of Cambridge will celebrate her milestone 40th birthday on Sunday. But despite being one of the most famous women in the world, Kate is expected to have quiet celebrations at home with her young family and friends. Royal expert Kate Nicholl said the duchess will be having scaled-down celebrations due to the spread of the Omicron variant.
She said: “There was talk of a big party which has apparently been downscaled because of COVID and because of the restrictions.
“But I suspect that Kate is probably happier having something a little bit more low-key.
“I would imagine that a smaller celebration of the family and friends is probably exactly how she would choose to celebrate her birthday.
“As long as she’s with her children, her husband and more likely than not, her family, I think she’ll be very happy.”

Where will Kate spend her 40th birthday?
It’s not known where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children will spend her 40th, but it’s most likely to be at their London home, Kensington Palace.
This is because two of their three children – Prince George and Princess Charlotte – are currently at school in London.
However, historically Kate has spent her birthday in the countryside.
Last year, the Cambridges celebrated Kate’s 39th birthday during lockdown, when they were living at their country home Anmer Hall, in Norfolk.
For the pared-down birthday celebrations, the Duchess was reportedly treated to a tea party by her family.
In a message thanking fans for their kind well wishes, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Instagram account said at the time: “Thank you for your kind wishes on the Duchess’ birthday.
“Birthdays have been very different in recent months, and our thoughts continue to be with all those working on the front line at this hugely challenging time.”

This year, it is thought she will be joined by her parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, and a small group of friends.
Her mother, who will celebrate her own 67th birthday at the end of January, is clearly looking forward to the weeks ahead.
She wrote on her company Party Pieces’ Instagram page: “It’s no surprise I’ve learned to love January; it’s the start of a new year and time to get healthy habits in place and birthday month for me so there is every good reason to celebrate with loved ones!”
A source told The Mirror: “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.”
Bigger celebrations will be taking place later this year for her husband’s 40th birthday, however.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said: “The Queen is tremendously fond of enjoying such occasions and this would be no different.
“There’s a lot to look forward to in her Platinum Jubilee year, and with both William and Kate turning 40 it’s an extra excuse to celebrate.
“This is a pretty big one for the Cambridges so it should be quite the party.”
