Kate's 30th Birthday, party plans, send Kate a card and childhood photos.

Can you all believe Kate is turning 30 on Monday? I for one cannot. I've been following Kate's style and her relationship with William since the tender age of twelve, when Kate was a student at St. Andrews University. It's incredible to think how far they've come and I anticipate it will be another wonderful year for the Duchess. It's also a good time to look back on Kate's younger years.

Kate looking adorable aged six.

Kate attended St Andrew's prep school in pangbourne aged seven.

Fifteen year old Kate excelled at sport.

Kate studied science and art for her A levels.

Kate studied History of art at St Andrews where she met a very special guy :)

The Daily Mail have several more photographs in their article here.

We are interested to know how Kate will celebrate her birthday. According to Grazia, party planner Pippa and Prince Harry have some interesting ideas including an 80's bash. The party is set to include cocktails and karaoke. 
Royal reporter Richard Palmer heard Kate is planning a very low key celebration which is truthfully what I expected. Possibly a dinner with family and close friends? I would be more inclined to believe that it will be low key. However Kate chooses to celebrate I hope she has a wonderful time.

It's not too late to personally wish Duchess Kate a Happy Birthday, you may address you card too

It's going to be an interesting week, Sunday night William and Kate are attending the premiere of 'War Horse' and I expect Kate will be announcing which charities she wishes to support tomorrow. I will post as soon as news comes in. Hoping for new photos then :)

  1. Your blog is my absolute favorite. I am looking forward to all your posts in this new year. I can't wait to see what she wears Sunday night. Your new header is great. I think that black velvet dress is her best look ever after her wedding gown, of course.:)

  2. Thank you both so much, The black favourite is my all time favourite too!

  3. I love your blog! Awesome header, that black McQueen dress is my new favorite too. Just stunning.

    I'm sure Pippa and Harry will do an awesome job with Kate's birthday party. I'll be the same age as Kate for 3 days (my b-day is on Fri)! LOL

  4. My boyfriend is a web designer and made the header, I love it too. I really wanted the black McQueen to feature.

    Looking forward to hearing about Kate's charities tomorrow!

  5. Why do you think she will announce them tomorrow?
    and which special guy did she meet?You mean william?

  6. Yes William :)

    I heard from someone very reliable that they are due to be released tomorrow.

  7. you mean someone said it publicly or its a private source close to you?

  8. A newspaper leaked the charities Kate had chosen but immediately had to remove the article as there is an embargo. So I can't be certain but I expect we will hear either late tonight or tomorrow.

  9. Love the older pics of her. Makes me remember, deep down, she's really just one of us. And how cool is that?? :)

  10. Alyssia - These charities are just the start and I do feel excellent choices, Kate's childhood pics are adorable :)

  11. What I love about Kate is that she is always 'ladylike' in her presentation. I know that is an old-fashioned word and I am not an old feashioned person but I hate the trashy way a lot of young women choose to dress.....super tight, super short, lots of 'tanned' skin showing. It looks so uncomfortable too. Michelle Williams is another public figure who manages always to look pretty, modern and feminine.
