Kate, Duchess of Cambridge turns 39 today and is likely to spend her birthday at home with husband Prince William, 38, and their three children – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two. The Cambridges have been based at there country home Anmer Hall since before Christmas and are likely to remain there throughout the current lockdown.
Anmer Hall is said to be where the Duchess feels most at home and is where she usually chooses to mark her birthday every year.
Last year a group of close friends and family members, including Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton, were photographed out with the Duchess in Norfolk over her birthday weekend.
While Kate may have liked to celebrate with wider family and pals, this year a group celebration is off-limits due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

While Kate is usually in charge of the cooking at home, William could decide to give her a rest and treat her to a special birthday meal.
The Duchess previously revealed how William sought to woo her with his cooking while they both still at university.
Speaking to TV cook Mary Berry in 2019, Kate revealed: “In university days he used to cook all sorts of meals”
“I think that’s when he was trying to impress me, Mary! Things like Bolognese sauce, and things like that.”
During the first lockdown, Kate shared the kind of activities she and the children were doing to keep busy.
These included art, cooking and outdoor play.
She told BBC Breakfast at the time: “The children have got such stamina I don’t know how.
“Honestly, you get to the end of the day and you write down the list of all the things that you’ve done in that day.
“So you pitch a tent take the tent down again, cook, bake.
“You get to the end of the day – they have had a lovely time – but it is amazing how much you can cram into one day that’s for sure.”
