They posted a photo of Kate during her visit to Cyprus in December 2018 with a short message: “Thank you everyone for all your lovely messages on The Duchess of Cambridge’s birthday.”

And it’s not just royal fans who have been sharing their tributes to Kate, several of her patronages have also sent her sweet messages, including East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices charity and Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
The Queen’s official twitter account @RoyalFamily also recognised Kate’s charity work: “The Duchess undertakes royal duties in support of The Queen, both in the UK & overseas – and devotes her time to supporting charitable causes & organisations, several of which are centred around providing children with the best possible start in life.”

While the Duchess usually celebrates her birthday in private with her family, that didn’t stop one member of the public from asking her husband William how she was spending her day.
The Duke of Cambridge attended his first official engagement of 2019 on Wednesday morning, visiting London’s Air Ambulance.
At a tea party, William was presented with a homemade birthday card for wife Kate by three youngsters and one guest couldn’t resist asking what her plans were for the day.
Clearly not wanting to give anything away, he responded with: “Now that would be telling,” which provoked laughter from everyone.
Kate and William were last spotted in public together on January 6, attending a church service in Sandringham with the Queen. Kate wore a repeat blue Catherine Walker coat with a polka dot dress, heels and a Jane Taylor headband.
The Duchess of Cambridge will undertake her first duty of the year on Tuesday 15 January, when she will visit the King Henry’s Walk Garden in Islington to see how the project brings people together through gardening and food growing.
