Kate Middleton & Her Royal Baby Bump Celebrate Her Birthday "Privately"

kate-middle-31-birthday-private.jpg

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.

The subdued day is most likely due to stress and illness after Kate was hospitalized last month for pregnancy sickness and lost one of her nurses to suicide.

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!!

SIGHting

Filed under: SIGHtingKate Middleton

Kate Middleton grocery shopping alone at a supermarket near Anglesey, North Wales, which is where her husband Prince William is based as a search and rescue pilot!

Although she was followed by two bodyguards and had another one waiting outside, a witness explained:

"She was very much shopping alone and insisted on doing everything."

What a girl! Glad to hear that she's not letting being one of the most famous people in the world currently get to her head!

Keep it up, lady!

Newly-Married Duchess Catherine Taking Some Time Away From The Public Eye!

kate-middleton-to-live-private-life-for-two-years

We don't blame her for wanting to take a bit of a break! The last few months must have been so STRESSFUL!

Now that Kate Middleton has married into the Royal Family as the Duchess of Cambridge, sources close to the new bridge have revealed that she has no immediate plans to become a full-time royal, and will most likely hold off for about two years, because she wants to focus on being a normal wife to her husband, Prince William!

Apparently, much like the Queen, who lived in Malta as a Newlywed for two years when Prince Philip was based there with the Navy, Kate wants to take some time away from the public eye and take on a 'supporting role' as an 'ordinary RAF wife' while the couple live in a rented farmhouse in North Wales, and pursue 'other interests.'

The insider explains:

"The couple will do things as a pair after their marriage and for the foreseeable future. Catherine will not be conducting any solo engagements. The number of engagements she does with William will remain pretty level. Prince William has a full-time job he has to work round and that is his priority. He is committed to it for at least another two years so nothing much will change in the immediate future, apart from the fact that he and Catherine will take part in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations next year. He is already committed to a number of charitable patronages and Catherine will, initially at least, support him in that as his wife. She will, in time, become associated with her own charities but this won’t happen immediately as she wants to explore the fields that interest her first. Catherine wants to enjoy her time with William as an RAF wife. It’s so rare that someone in her position gets the chance to live as a normal wife and she intends to make the most of it."

Agreed!

We imagine it's got to be a lot to marry into the Royal Family, and we're thrilled that she has the opportunity to get used to it privately before she's expected to jump into the public eye.

Enjoy this time, gurl, and best of luck adjusting to married life!

We think you two are going to be very happy together!

Kate Middleton Causes A Fascinator Frenzy

kate-middleton-causes-sales-of-fascinators-to-increase.jpg

Kate Middleton is only a princess-to-be, but when it comes to setting trends she's the queen!

Ever since the future Royal stepped out in North Wales wearing a velvet fascinator accented with pheasant feathers, sales for similar headpieces have soared.

UK retailer Peacocks reported a 95% sales increase since the February 24th public appearance.

The store's head of accessories said of the sudden surge:

The appeal of our new princess is turning the nation into Kate watchers. Fascinator sales were definitely on the wane, however we're now looking forward to frou frou feathered creations being back for the summer and we're expecting sales to rise and rise."

Fascinating.

Ha!

Hogs enjoy the snow

What adorable little large piggies!

Kuni pigs, Horace Spot and Hector Hog, enjoy the snow in North Wales, while the rest of the country suffers from complications due to the extreme weather.

While some might think they have a face only a mother could love, we think they are two cute pigs!
