Kate Middleton is marking two special occasions today


KATE MIDDLETON is marking two special occasions today as she celebrates her husband William’s birthday as well as her parent’s wedding anniversary.

Carole met flight dispatcher Michael while she was working as a flight attendant for British Airways.

The pair married on June 21, 1980, in Buckinghamshire, before welcoming Kate in 1982, followed by Pippa Middleton in 1983, and their son James Middleton in 1987.

William has previously spoken about his fondness for his in-laws.

During a trip to Scotland last year where he met first responders, one guest said they had not seen their in-laws for a year due to lockdowns and the pandemic. William joked: “Some people are quite happy they haven’t seen their in-laws for a year.” After some laughter, he added: “I love my in-laws.”

The future King marked his birthday by releasing three official photos via Kensington Palace, which showed William selling The Big Issue.

Like his mother Princess Diana, William is passionate about helping the homeless and eradicating homelessness as an issue.

Writing in a special edition of The Big Issue, he penned: “I count myself extremely lucky to have a role that allows me to meet people from all walks of life, and to understand their full story – whatever it may be.

He added: “I hope to bring George, Charlotte and Louis to see the fantastic organisations doing inspiring work to support those most in need – just as my mother did for me.”

It has been reported that Prince William plans on holding a joint birthday bash with wife Kate after her plans were cancelled amid surging Covid rates.

The Duke of Cambridge has been given the go ahead to throw the party at the Queen’s Windsor Castle home or Sandringham Estate later this summer after agreeing the couple should “celebrate their landmark birthdays in style”, royal sources have revealed to the Mirror.

But the 96-year-old may be unable to attend following her ongoing mobility problems that have seen her having to cancel a number of public appearances.

In a royal first, William will not have his birthday marked by the flying of Union flags on government buildings to mark the birthdays of senior royals.

It emerged yesterday that The Queen and the Prince of Wales will now be the only royals whose birthdays will be marked in such a way.
