It seems like yesterday that a young Kate Middleton was walking down the aisle with Prince William, but amazingly the mum-of-three turned 39 on January 9.
Bizarrely, her mum’s Party Pieces mail firm, which specialises in celebratory decorations and accessories, has been drawing attention to the downside of a January birth date.
“Did you know that 68 per cent of our followers with birthdays in January said they didn’t like having it this month” they Tweeted. “Traditionally it’s a cold, dark month when people are saving money, staying in and craving a break from the excesses of the month before.”
What with Covid-19 lockdowns, the mid-winter is bleaker than normal.
But Catherine the Great has enhanced her reputation and is now more popular than ever after a series of high profile Zoom and personal visits during the last year.
The future of the monarchy rests squarely on William and Kate’s shoulders going forward.
