What on earth do you gift a woman who has everything? That must have been Prince William's internal dilemma leading up to wife Kate Middleton's 37th birthday on Jan. 9. The heir to the British throne has an impressive track record for gifting his wife with exquisite and one-of-a-kind pieces for her birthday celebrations.
The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly received a pearl and garnet rose-gold Victorian ring from Wills while they were dating.
Royal experts noted that William’s birthstone is the pearl while Kate’s is the garnet, therefore a great deal of consideration would have gone into designing this ring.
He later gave her a pair of green amethyst earrings by Kiki McDonough, one of her favourite jewellery designers. Another of William's gifts was a Ballon Bleu de Cartier watch.
While royal fans will have to wait and see what Wills gifted Kate, if her past presents are anything to go by its going to be a doozy.
The Duchess reportedly spent her birthday in a low-key way, opting to spend it with her children Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 9-months, at their Kensington Palace home.
Vanity Fair reports the Duchess of Cambridge chose a rather special event, a tea party at Kensington Palace with Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
“Kate’s not into big birthday celebrations, but George and Charlotte adore birthday cake, so there will be a special tea party at the Palace with candles and presents,” a source told the publication.
Kate's last big birthday celebration was over six years ago, when the Duchess turned 31.
But since George's birth, Kate has celebrated her birthday privately in the comfort of her home.
A source told E! News that last year Kate spent her 36th birthday "privately with William and the children. It's just a quiet celebration at home. No big party."
