Kate Middleton and Prince William celebrate his 31st birthday

Rex

Only a month away from the due date of their first child, Kate Middleton and Prince William will spend his 31st birthday, “privately,” St James’s Palace has confirmed.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are most likely preoccupied with the imminent arrival of their first baby, which is now due just under a month away, rather than having a big celebration.

KATE MIDDLETON'S ROYAL ENGAGEMENTS

Prince William spent his 30th birthday last year with Kate and friends near their home in Anglesey while for his 29th birthday he spent the day at work as he was on duty at the time. In fact, the last time the Prince had a party was in 2006 after playing a charity polo match with Prince Harry before returning to Highgrove for a private party with friends. It seems that Wills has left his partying days behind him as he takes a more senior role within the Royal family and prepares to become a father.

PREGNANT CELEBRITIES

William has also been confirmed to be by Kate’s side during the birth at St Mary’s Hospital in London – much like his father, Prince Charles who was there with Princess Diana when William Arthur Philip Louis Windsor was born 31 years ago in 1982.

While the couple will be spending his birthday quietly it is not yet known whether they plan to attend the society wedding of their friend Tom Van Straubenzee and Lady Melissa Percy in Alnwick the following day.
