Revealed: Kate cuts back her 40th birthday plans to a ‘smaller affair with just family and close friends’ instead of a big party due to Covid risk

Next Sunday will be a landmark birthday for the Duchess of Cambridge.

But the celebrations for Kate’s 40th birthday will be muted – like her Christmas – due to the Covid risk, The Mail on Sunday understands.

Instead of a big party, the Duchess is expected to have a much smaller affair with just family and close friends.

Kensington Palace will mark the milestone occasion by releasing a new picture of the Duchess, who is herself a keen photographer.

Kate and William – who on Friday unveiled a photograph of themselves on the way to last year’s James Bond premiere to coincide with New Year’s Eve – missed out on the traditional Royal Family Christmas celebrations after the Queen was forced to cancel her plans to host the festivities at Sandringham.

Due to fears of the Omicron Covid variant, a smaller lunch was held at Windsor Castle while the Cambridges hosted Kate’s family at Anmer Hall, their country retreat on the Sandringham estate

A source said: ‘There are likely to be low-key celebrations for the Duchess. She didn’t want anything flashy anyway – that’s not exactly her thing – but particularly given the current climate anything is likely to be scaled down.’
