The Duchess of Cambridge will be turning 40 on Sunday, and although reports suggest it will be a “low-key” and much scaled back affair, another party is reportedly being planned. The bigger party is predicted to take place in June when her husband, the Duke of Cambridge, also turns 40, sources told The Mirror.
A source told the publication that Kate has ditched the idea of a big do this weekend due to the Covid situation.
She will instead “celebrate privately with her family”.
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.
Last year, the Cambridges celebrated Kate’s 39th birthday during lockdown where she was reportedly treated to a tea party put on by William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
In 2020, the Duchess also hosted some of her closest friends at their country home for her birthday, including William’s close pal Tom van Straubenzee and his then-fiancée Lucy Lanigan-O’Keeffe.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, said she expects the Queen will play a major role in the planning of the party for William.
Ms Seward told The Mirror: “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.”
The larger summer birthday event is expected to be held at either Windsor Castle or Sandringham among the likely venues.

This is not the first time that two royal members will be celebrating their birthdays together.
In June 2000, a grand celebration took place in Windsor Castle to celebrate Prince Andrew’s 40th birthday, Princess Anne’s 50th, Princess Margaret’s 70th and William’s 18th.
