Kate Middleton reportedly received an unexpected birthday present from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on her 39th birthday. The Duchess of Cambridge had a quite birthday last weekend with her family at their home in Norfolk.
Gifts for Kate Middleton
National lockdown restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic did not let Kate Middleton celebrate her birthday in a grand way. She spent time with her family and husband Prince William to have a cosy birthday celebration at home. However, a surprise gift from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry changed the mood. The couple took the time to send over some birthday gifts to the Duchess despite the great physical distance between them and showed great affection. Speaking to US magazine, a ‘source’ did not provide any details of the gifts. But the source clearly mentioned, “It was a nice surprise. Kate wasn’t expecting anything from the couple.” Kate Middleton was taken aback by the delivery.
Husband Prince William, meanwhile, is reported to gift the Duchess a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings in her birthday.
Despite their move last year, the way these couples try to get in touch shows the connectivity they share. Even over Christmas, the two couples are said to have connected via video and phone calls and even sent gifts to one another. Royal expert Kate Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight: “It was an opportunity in an otherwise very busy and chaotic year for both of the families to come together and connect, albeit virtually.”
She added the two brothers’ relationship is now “much better than it was” and that the two “speak relatively regularly”. However, she did not forget to mention that the brothers were on “different paths” in life. On the other hand, while Prince Harry is currently getting used to with a life outside of the royal family, Prince William remained the full-time senior royals along with his wife Kate Middleton. As Prince Philip will turn 100 in June, the brother could get back together for the occasion.
