Princess Kate’s bittersweet birthday week

On Monday, January 9, the Princess of Wales will turn 41, but the royal family will also be preparing for revelations in Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare.

Catherine celebrated the holiday season in Norfolk with her young family before spending Christmas at Sandringham with King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla.

Prince William and Catherine’s youngest child, Prince Louis, 4, made his debut while the royal family was out in full force for the Christmas Day walk to church.

The family of five also visited Santa at Lapland UK during the holiday season, and William reportedly gave his wife an exciting date by taking an Aston Martin DBX707 for a weekend test drive.

While Catherine usually spends her birthday privately and Kensington Palace released three very special portraits to commemorate her milestone 40th last year, her brother-in-law’s book is probably causing some concern.

Additionally, Prince Harry spoke with Tom Bradby of ITV1 and Anderson Cooper of CBS; both of these interviews will air the evening before Catherine’s birthday. His book will be published the following day, on January 10.

The Duke appears prepared to discuss his tense relationship with his father, King Charles, and brother, William.

“I want a family, not an institution”, Harry declares in the ITV1 interview, adding, “I would like to get my father back and I would like to have my brother back.”

The 38-year-old also says, “It never needed to be this way,” in reference to “the leaking and the planting” of information.

They believe that keeping us in some way as the bad guys is preferable, he continued. “They have shown utterly no willingness to make amends.”
