Over the years, Kate Middleton has become a fashion icon — not only does she always manage to look amazing, but she also tries to recycle previous outfits.
On Sunday, January 9, the mom-of-three will celebrate her 40th birthday, and though the COVID-19 cases are up around the world, it seems like Prince William and their tots, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, will do everything to make it as special as possible.
"It will be low key and it will be focused entirely on the family," expert Duncan Larcombe told OK!. “She’s unlikely to [announce a new project on her birthday, unlike Meghan Markle who launched a mentorship program to mark her 40th] because, firstly, it’s just not her way and secondly because of the obvious comparisons with Meghan and this awful continuation of one-upmanship that the palace is so keen to avoid.”
