It is a happy 31st birthday indeed for the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, who will be spending the day celebrating in a low-key fashion with husband Prince William at their home in Anglesey.
Kate, who is confirmed to be around the 12 week mark and about to enter her second trimester, will hopefully begin reaping the benfits of being in the middle stages of pregnancy. If Kate is 12 weeks pregnant, we have calculated that the royal baby will be due mid-July.
The Duchess suffered from a serious bout of hyperemesis gravidarum, so will be glad to be moving into what is sometimes referred to as the ‘blooming’ phase of pregnancy.
So, what can mum-to-be Kate expect as a birthday gift from her adoring hubby? A source told the Evening Standard: “William has gathered together various property details from some high-end retail estates which he will give to her on her birthday on January 9.”
“They’ve talked about getting a place where they can get away from it all,” the source continued, “and now William has narrowed down the list to a few incredible places in Hampshire and Buckinghamshire around the £5 million mark.”
Hopefully William also had a read of our gifts for mums-to-be roundup? How did you celebrate your birthday, whilst pregnant? Tell us below to start a discussion…
Happy birthday, Kate!
