Kate has cancelled her birthday plans, following in the footsteps of the Queen.
In the midst of the Omicron spread, KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, will have a shortened birthday to “set an example.”
Due to Omicron fears, Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, has reportedly decided to cancel plans for her 40th birthday party and instead celebrate with “just family and close friends.”
Kate and the rest of the royal family had a low-key Christmas and will do the same for her birthday on January 9th.
The Queen also canceled plans for a traditional Christmas celebration at Sandringham, leaving the Cambridges to host Kate’s family, the Middletons, at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
On the Royally US podcast, royal expert Jonathan Sacerdoti discussed the Duchess’ birthday plans with Christina Garibaldi and Christine Ross.
“We have someone to compare it to,” he explained.
We saw how Meghan Markle handled herself at her 40th birthday party, and we’re wondering if Catherine will follow suit.
“Of course, Meghan did that video where she announced her new initiative to help people re-enter the workforce after many people had lost jobs with COVID through mentoring.”
“I don’t think Duchess Catherine will do anything similar.”
We’ve been told that we’ll see something much more low-key.
“Her birthday is on January 9th, and due to the COVID pandemic, we’re going to have to cut it short.”
“I mean, here in the UK, the numbers are back up again,” he continued.
There’s a variant called Omicron.
There is no lockdown in place, but there is some opposition to large gatherings.
“It’s something that some people may not believe is the best course of action.
And, as is customary, the Royal Family will want to set an example for others.
“So, even for such a significant birthday as her 40th, she’s opting for something more low-key in order to set a good example.”
“She was in lockdown with William and their kids last year.”
She’ll even miss out on a Westminster Abbey tradition of ringing the bells on senior royals’ birthdays.
“They’ve stopped doing it except for the Queen’s and Prince Charles’ birthdays, and it appears to be a cost-cutting measure.”
Catherine, on the other hand, will not be.
