Kate Middleton has had a very busy weekend full of Royal engagements, but there is no rest for the Duchess of Cambridge as she plans the last minute details of Prince William’s 30th birthday celebrations.
Wills turns the big 3-0 this Thursday, June 21, and Kate is said to have been working extensively on plans to make sure this is the best ever birthday he’s had.
First of all, the Duchess is believed to be planning to throw the Prince a party fit for a King, working alongside his best friends to make sure every last detail is perfect.
One of the people Kate is thought to have been liaising with is nightclub owner Guy Pelly, to get his help in recreating a club setting at one of the royal residences.
According to Now magazine, Kate has been looking at staging the bash at either Highgrove House in Gloucestershire or in London at Kensington Palace – no doubt because the setting will be very grand, perfect for the special occasion. It will also be far away from the prying eye of the public and the press - perfect for such a big night.
In addition to the “private and special” party, which Kate is said to be planning for Wills, the Duchess is also reported to have been putting a great amount of thought into presenting the Prince with gifts he'll truly cherish.
Apparently Kate has posed for a special painting, capture by artist Nicky Philipps, which she organised with the help of her father-in-law Prince Charles, and will present it to Wills on Thursday.
And the pressies don’t stop there. Kate is also said to be keen to remind William of all the special times they’ve spent together during their eight-year courtship and one-year marriage.
A source told the magazine: “Firstly, she wants to make him a scrapbook of their life together.
“It will include snaps of every holiday they've been on, memorabilia of special moments in their relationship and a heartfelt birthday message.”
The insider continued: “Not only that, she's also making him a mixtape - well, an iPod playlist - of songs that have special meaning to them.”
Sounds like Prince William is going to have one very special 30th birthday this week!
