What Kate did

Well can you believe it, your birthday gets hijacked by Will and Kate. Tsk, since when has an engagement been front page news. Whilst the eyes of the world were on the great pretender Kate, whom henceforth is to be referred to as Catherine. The real Katherine who is still being called Kate amongst other things set about an ordinary commoners birthday.

Firstly she dropped off a young pup off at school and went for a swim outdoors. It truly was parky. Not a pap insight Kate ran the risk of 4x4 land and went for a brunch in the Surrey hinterland of Cobham at Carluccios, predictable but useful for guaranteed food pleasure.

Whilst she was receiving calls she declined to comment on anything and choose merely to glance coyly at the camera in case she opened her commoners mouth.

Eggs Florentine yummy

followed by almond croissant in true weighty Kate style

Waity Kate ( for the bill ) has no comment ref Will but would have quite like to have stopped the man at the next table going on and on about it, especially the line 'you heard it here first'

After an afternoons work, it was back to the palace, sorry house and time to bring out the birthday crown jewels, well they are delightful jewels in Kate's world.

A glorious booty

behold the magnificence of Dior

even more magnificence to behold

The admiration of the birthday haul was interrupted by the return home of her prince charming, bearing....well no gifts, merely a grazed knee, a hole in his Paul Smith suit trousers and swearing more than the entire band of Take That in a documentary.

Sighing, Princess Kate glanced at her sparkly engagement ring of many years and served up the dinner and a large glass of red for the wounded soldier.
