The Duchess of Cambridge, who turned 39 last week, revealed that she celebrated a "very different" birthday this year. According to Daily Mail, Kate Middleton also expressed that her thoughts are with the workers who have been working tirelessly on the front line of the pandemic. It is believed that she spent her special day with her family at their Norfolk home of Anmer Hall. It is the same place where the Cambridges spent Christmas last year after the Queen decided to have a quiet festive period at Windsor Castle.
Duchess Middleton received several heartfelt wishes on her birthday, including that of the Queen, the Prince of Wales, and the Duchess of Cornwall. However, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who don't have social media accounts, are yet to convey their wishes publicly—something the Cambridges had done for the couple last year. A day before Kate's 38th birthday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sent shock waves through the nation after announcing their wish to step down from their royal roles and become financially independent.
Nonetheless, Kate through the Cambridges' Twitter page thanked everyone for their kind and generous wishes. Thank you for your kind wishes on The Duchess' birthday. Birthdays have been very different in recent months, and our thoughts continue to be with all those working on the front line at this hugely challenging time, read the post that was accompanied by a photograph of Kate donning a face mask and waving. The picture is said to have been taken when Prince William and she were on a three-day tour of the country in December.
Even the Twitter account of the Clarence House shared a post that read: Happy Birthday to The Duchess of Cambridge! Alongside this was a picture of Kate, which was clicked during her visit to Battersea Park in September. There she met many mothers and learned how they were helping each other out during the health crisis. Wishing The Duchess of Cambridge a very happy birthday today! tweeted the Buckingham Palace along with two photos of Kate.

In light of the lockdown, Kate's birthday celebration in 2020 was rather quiet and private as compared to her 38th birthday bash at the Kensington Palace, reports Hello Magazine. That being said, she definitely got the opportunity to spend a lot of time with her husband William and their three children: Prince George, 7, Princess Charlotte, 5, and Prince Louis, 2. Kate was born to Carole and Michael Middleton in 1982 at the Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. She is the eldest of three siblings, followed by Pippa and James Middleton.
The Duchess of Sussex grew up in Bucklebury and even spent a few years in Amman, Jordan, during her early childhood, as her father worked for British Airways. She attended the exclusive, private Marlborough College in Wiltshire, where she was part-boarded. Eventually, she met her future husband Prince William at the University of St Andrews in Scotland, from where she graduated in history of art with a 2:1, in 2001. After dating each other for seven years, they announced their engagement in 2010 and tied the knot in April 2011 at Westminster Abbey. The royal pair are set to celebrate their 10th marriage anniversary this year. Currently, she serves as a patron for 19 charities and organizations. Kate also has a charity that is focused on helping children, particularly with their mental health, by giving them the best possible start to life.
