Mama Kate turns 36

Birthdays are a massive affair in today’s world but not when you are Duchess Catherine! Despite hailing from a Royal family, the Duchess of Cambridge ensured that all the royal treatment fell in her daughter, little Charlotte’s lap instead, who started her nursey school a day before Mama Kate turned 36.

The selfless mother marked the occasion (of her daughter’s first day of school, of course) by snapping some adorable shots of the Princess at Kensington Palace, all smiles and ready to head to Willcocks Nursery School. We are amazed at how multitalented the Royal is because the snaps are a telltale of how impressive the photographer behind the lens is! A doting mother of two, with another little one on the way, Kate often clicks official photos of her kids herself. We still can’t help drooling over the first official photo of baby Charlotte in big brother, Prince George’s arms at their Norfolk country house – can’t believe how grown up she is now.

As for her own birthday celebrations, she opted for a low-key bash like last year with only her closest clan attending. We believe the VIPs who made it to the coveted party include the birthday girl’s bestie and Princess Charlotte’s godmother, Sophie Carter, who also happens to be the ex of William's best friend, Thomas van Straubenzee. We suspect that the duchess’ brother James Matthews and sister Pippa Middleton popped by the party too.

According to a little birdie, the Duchess was picky about what she ate at the party. Quite responsible of her, if you ask us. The third, royal baby is due in late April or early May and then the family would hopefully have more reasons to celebrate! Their new addition will come just a month before Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who announced their engagement in November 2017, walk down the aisle.

And maybe, just maybe, one of the highlights of the soiree was the game, ‘What’s your unicorn name?’ After all, the party planning chain of the Duchess Catherine’s British family, Party Pieces did take to the internet to upload a hilarious chart on the eve of her birthday. It allows you to pick your unicorn name based on your birthday month and initials. That makes our birthday girl Giddy Twinkle Toes, hehe. We are sure Charlotte loved the game, if no one else. Here’s to wishing Giddy Twinkle Toes a hale and hearty year ahead.
