In November they will welcome 20 years of marriage and Catherine already has plans for the big day.

"I will raise my mask and let my husband passionately kiss me, then I will put it firmly back on," she told People magazine before confirming the coronavirus pandemic has put the kibosh on any grand plans. 

"We won't be doing any great big party," she added. "Not that I'm a big party fan anyway. It would be nice to get all our friends together in one space, but we're not doing that until we're completely out of the woods."
