The Duchess of Cambridge celebrates her 37th birthday today. Happy birthday Your Royal Highness! It is thought that there has been a private celebration over the weekend at Amner Hall (the Duke and Duchess attended a church service with a few of their close friends) and there will possibly be some kind of private celebration at Kensington Palace today. Both Prince George and Princess Charlotte have to go to school today: prince George started his spring term yesterday at St. Thomas’s Battersea and Princess Charlotte will attend her second day of the year at Willcock’s Nursery School.
For Her Royal Highness, 2019 will reportedly incredibly busy year. She will announce her ‘Early Years’ initiative soon and will also possibly take over a few new patronages from Her Majesty. On top of that, she will keep working with the patronages she already has and will also join her husband on ‘away days’ across the UK. The Duchess will also be attending events with the Royal Family like state banquets and Remembrance events. No oversea tours have been announced for the couple yet, but it can be expected that we will hear something about that soon. They are expected to go on multiple tours this year.
Her Majesty the Queen is throwing the Prince of Wales a reception and a dinner at Buckingham Palace on occasion of his 70th birthday tonight. Beside the Royal Family, members of other European Royal Families are also attending the event tonight.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge arrived at Buckingham Palace from Kensington Palace by car, after spending the day with engagements in South Yorkshire. The Duchess is wearing a pink gown and her gorgeous big mystery earrings set in gold and diamonds (first worn in 2011 and again in 2017). Her hair is styled into a fabulous updo!
The Prince of Wales is celebrating his 70th birthday today. For the occasion, two new photographs of him and his family were released last night. The photographs were taken by photographer Chris Jackson in September in the gardens of Clarence House, the official residence of the Prince and the Duchess of Cornwall in London. The first photograph is a more formal shot of the Prince, his wife and his sons with their respective wives and his grandchildren. The photographs will become historic, as this will be the Royal Family as we are to know them for many many years to come.
The second shot however features everyone laughing about something clearly very funny. It is very nice to see Prince Louis again, he has changed so much since we last saw him at his christening in July! Note: as the photograph was taken early September, when Meghan was already pregnant (early stages), it actually features the Prince’s fourth grandchild too!
The Duchess of Cambridge is wearing a dress by Alessandra Rich (which has been seen on several other famous women already in the past few months) and her sapphire and diamond earrings, while the Duchess of Sussex is in bespoke Givenchy.
Happy birthday, Your Royal Highness!
Tonight, the Queen will host a reception and a dinner for the Prince on occasion of his birthday. The party, which presumably is a black-tie affair, will be attended by members of the Royal Family and foreign Royals. We will probably get the infamous ‘car shots’ from the arrivals, but it is also very much possible that one or two photographs from inside will be released! The party will be covered live on this blog tonight. Stay tuned!
The Duke of Sussex celebrates his 34th birthday today. Happy Birthday Your Royal Highness! It is expected that the day will be celebrated in private at Nottingham Cottage in London or at their country home in the Cotswolds. Neither the Duke nor the Duchess have official duties today, so they will probably spend the day with family and friends.
It’s been a very special year for the Duke, who even had a change of title. After being known for three decades and a few years as Prince Harry, he now is the Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel. A few months after his 33rd birthday, he announced his engagement to ms. Meghan Markle. In the months between the engagement and the wedding, the couple toured the United Kingdom. They were received warmly everywhere and embarked on many walkabouts to meet the public. On May 19, a sunny and lovely day, the couple married at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle in a beautiful ceremony, surrounded by their family and close friends.
