Kate Middleton will turn 32 on January 9 but how will the Duchess of Cambridge be celebrating her big day? In the past the royal has sneaked away on a romantic getaway with husband Prince William or gone partying with sister Pippa but as a new mother, it sounds like this year's celebrations could be a more low key affair.
The Duchess normally surrounds herself with friends and family for her big day, preferring to celebrate quietly especially with her big day coming just a couple of weeks after the hectic royal Christmas at Sandringham.
Hello! magazine report that Kate will most likely spend her 32nd enjoying her new home at Kensington Palace with William and their six-month-old son Prince George. With the Duke of Cambridge starting his ten week agricultural course at Cambridge University this week, he's got a busy few days leading up to his wife's birthday.
In past years though, William has gone all out with thoughtful gifts for Kate, presenting her with pearl earrings and a romantic break in Scotland back in 2009.

Back when the couple were just dating, William surprised his girlfriend with a romantic candle-lit supper in a remote log cabin on the royal Balmoral estate in Scotland. Kate's birthday fell just before the prince was due to begin an intensive phase of military training, making sure the pair enjoyed some quality time together before a long period apart.
