Forty is the new [insert your favorite age here, which might as well be 40]. Especially if you’re a stylish royal, like Prince William and Kate Middleton, who both hit four decades of Being on Earth this year.
Kate’s birthday was in January and Wills’s in June, but they’ll have a joint bash later this summer, according to a new report in The Mirror. The royal family will neither confirm nor deny rumors of a party, but from what we’re hearing, it’s going to be a good one. Tea and crumpets anyone?
Here’s everything we know about the big bash:
Who is hosting? The Queen, duh. The party will be held either at Windsor Castle or Her Majesty’s Sandringham Estate.
Who is coming? Senior members of the royal family are expected to attend, but QE2 herself will make a day-of decision because of her “mobility issues” (she is, speaking of birthdays, 96 years old, after all). We don’t expect Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to attend, but you just know Meghan is going to send a gift, and it’s going to be, like, organic bamboo toothbrushes or something.

What about flags? Oh, my God, I am so glad you asked! Traditionally the Union Jack has been flown on government buildings to mark the birthdays of senior royals, because monarchies are weird. However, that rule was changed at the beginning of this year, and now the flags only need to be flown for Queen Elizabeth II’s and Prince Charles’s birthdays. The Mirror speculates that this rule change was to eliminate the possibility of having to honour the disgraced Prince Andrew. Which isn’t Prince William’s fault, but it’s probably fine that the flags won’t be flown in his honor because, again, monarchies…that’s crazy!!
What’s the theme? No idea, but wouldn’t it be funny if it was “sports”? LOL. I’m LOL’ing just thinking about that. L. O. L.
