The Duchess of Cambridge is celebrating her 38th birthday today. The mum-of-three is set to spend the day with her darling family who have been wishing her well this morning.

The Royal Family marked Kate’s birthday by sharing the sweetest tributes on their official social media platforms.

Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall posted numerous photos from official royal events and the sweetest snap of Prince Charles, Kate and Prince William.

Alongside the images, they wrote, “Wishing The Duchess of Cambridge a very Happy Birthday.”

It is understood that Kate kick-started her birthday celebrations last weekend at her family’s home in Norfolk.

Kate’s friends and family gathered at their home Anmer Hall on Sunday. The Duchess was joined by her parents, Thomas Van Straubenzee and his fiancée Lucy Lanigan-O'Keeffe, James Meade and his wife Laura.

Kate is expected to mark today with a low-key celebration at her and Prince William’s home in Kensington Palace.

The parents have no engagements in the royal diary today so they’ll be able to enjoy some quality family time with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The Duchess of Cambridge has penned a heartfelt note to midwives across the United Kingdom.

2020 marks the Year of the Nurse and Midwife, so in honour of the momentous year, Kate has praised the work they do.

Kate shared that she shadowed staff at Kingston Hospital in London which taught her a lot about the work they do.

In her letter, Kate wrote:

“You are there for women at their most vulnerable; you witness strength, pain and unimaginable joy on a daily basis. Your work often goes on behind the scenes, and away from the spotlight. Recently I was privileged enough to witness a small section of it first hand, spending several days at Kingston Hospital’s Maternity Unit.

“Although this was not my first encounter with the care and kindness provided by midwives across the country, it gave me a broader insight into the true impact you have on everybody you help.”

She continued, “Your role in supporting this critical phase of development extends far beyond the complicated task of delivering a baby successfully. The help and reassurance you provide for parents to be and parents of newborns is just as crucial. It goes a long way in building parents’ confidence from the start, with lifelong impact on the future happiness of their children.”

The mum-of-three praised them for being there during such special and life-changing moments in women’s lives.

“I want to thank you for all that you do. It has been a real privilege learning from you so far, and I look forward to meeting and learning from even more of you in the coming years and decades,” she gushed.

The mum-of-three wore a plaid dress with a white collar and puff sleeves to the Queen’s Christmas lunch. It is the perfect look for a Christmas celebration.

She also wore a pair of Cavalfiore pearls by British jewellery designer Cassandra Goad. 

The family were in high spirits as they joined Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, The Duke of York, Prince Charles, The Earl and Countess of Wessex, Princess Beatrice, and Zara and Mike Tindall for the festive lunch.

This Christmas, Prince George and Princess Charlotte will join their parents on the walk to St Mary Magdalene Church on Christmas Day.

According to The Sun, the youngsters are old enough to join The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the special tradition.

A source said, “It will be so sweet. George and Charlotte will make their Christmas debut, as long as they're both on good form on the day. It's the picture all royal fans want to see. The royals walking to church on Christmas Day is a rite of passage and so William and Kate didn't want to expose their children too early, but they feel they’re old enough now."

They will celebrate the holidays with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip at Sandringham.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte have officially finished school for the Christmas holidays so the Cambridges will certainly be feeling the Christmas spirit very soon.

The Duchess of Cambridge attended the Nato reception at Buckingham Palace last night and we are obsessed with the green dress she wore to the event.

Kate is a huge fan of cooking and often gets her children- Prince George and Princess Charlotte- involved in the process.

The mum and her darling children love to make their own pizzas and the youngsters have even made their own cheesy pasta.

We are so excited about Kate and Mary’s Christmas special, which is due to air next month. They’ll certainly make the most charming duo!

A royal etiquette expert has explained some of the more confusing royal style rules to news.com.au, and we can't even process how strange this is.

With a rake of high profile events in the Buckingham Palace calendar, The Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex have the chance to wear the finest jewels in the world. 

Apparently, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle are banned from wearing diamonds during the day, which we think sounds pretty unfair.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@meghanmarkle_official) on

Both women possess some beautiful jewellery of their own, and from their late mother-in-law Diana, Princess of Wales.

The pair are frequently given permission to wear select pieces from the royal collection, as well as their own. Basically, they own a shed-load of bling.

However, it turns out that the Duchesses are fairly restricted in what jewels they can wear at specific times during the day. Etiquette teacher Myka Meier has given us the lowdown.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by @the_royalfamilies on

“Other jewels are worn pre-6pm,” Meier told news.com.au, which explains why the duo are normally only seen sporting stones like pearls and topaz, or minimalist precious metal pieces during the day as well as their engagement rings.

The Duchesses are meant to avoid looking "flashy" before the evening time, for some reason. 

“Before 6pm, you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires," explains Meier.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@princess.diana.forever) on

"At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance.”

Considering their lifestyle is fairly different to our own, we don't think not wearing jewels while the sun is up will suggest that they're just like us.

James Middleton has confirmed his engagement to girlfriend Alizee Thevenet. The businessman proposed in the Lake District this week.

He took to Instagram to reveal the joyous news. James posted a photo of him and Alizee, who look as loved up as ever.

He captioned the snap, “She said OUI.”

News of the couple’s engagement was reported yesterday, but James waited until today to comment.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s brother has been dating Alizee for over a year. They just moved in together in West London in September.

Alizee had no idea who James was when they first met. She was unaware of his connection to the royal family until a friend told her before their first date.

Alizee’s father said his daughter is ‘deliriously happy’ with James.

Huge congratulations to the happy couple.

You can have your chance to stay in a property beside Prince William and Kate Middleton's country house in west Norfolk, and it's cheaper than a one-bedroom flat in London.

The Sandringham Estate listing have one catch; tenants must be cat-free and vetted, instead of a first-come first-served basis.

The house next door to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in West Norfolk is up for rent for just £700 per month, as Metro reports

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@royaltyeurope_kids_fashion_) on

The Sandringham Estate rents out an array of properties in the area, including 20 Cherry Tree. The cottaged terrace has two bedrooms across from Amner Hall.

The property has a huge amount of green garden space and parking, but its famous neighbours will most likely be the main draw.

The website points out that they prefer to rent their properties to people who "live and work locally," though they'll consider "those moving to the area."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by  (@rosy_____72) on

The letting adds, "Properties are not let on a first-come, first-served basis, but rather on which prospective tenant is best suited to the property."

They have a very strict no cat policy, but dogs will be "considered". The area has only 29 houses and a population of roughly 63 people. 

Amner Hall was a wedding gift to Prince William and Kate from The Queen, with about £1.5 million spent upgrading the mansion before they moved in.

Anmer has a small population but a wide variety of amenities including; a social club offering film nights, quiz evenings and barbeques, an active Bowls Club and a Women’s Institute and a 14th century church; St Mary the Virgin.

Most of the homes in the village were lived in by those employed at Amner Hall and the Royal estate.

If you're interested in applying for the property and having William and Kate nearby, you can do so via the Sandringham Estate website.
