Kate Middleton hacks
The Duchess of Cambridge will turn 40 on January 9 2022, but rather than a lavish party, it looks likely that her birthday celebrations are being toned down, much like her Christmas, due to fears of Covid-19.
Rather than have a large party, it’s expected that Kate will have a smaller gathering, with family and close friends attending.
A source told The Mail: “There are likely to be low-key celebrations for the Duchess.
“She didn’t want anything flashy anyway – that’s not exactly her thing – but particularly given the current climate anything is likely to be scaled down.”
