Kate Middleton turns 31 today, but how will the Duchess blow out her 31 candles?!
St. James Palace has revealed that the future queen will celebrate her birthday with royal hubby, Prince William, "privately" at their North Wales home.
Oh, poo! We would've loved to have seen Kate open presents!
We can't blame her, though!! She's going to need all the rest she can get because this time next year she'll be running around with a rambunctious heir to take care of!!
