Prince George's 2nd birthday: Kate plans low-key party at Anmer Hall

hellomagazine.com

The Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, is planning a low-key celebration in honour of Prince George's second birthday on Wednesday. The family will mark the occasion at Prince William and Kate's Norfolk home, Anmer Hall.

While Kate has reportedly done most of the planning herself and will host the celebrations, it is not known if Prince William will be able to attend. The 33-year-old is only a week into his new role as a pilot with the East Anglian Air Ambulance so he may have to work a shift.

Kate is planning a family celebration for Prince George's 2nd birthday

George's great-grandmother the Queen will once again be guest of honour at the party, as she was at his first birthday celebrations at Kensington Palace.

Other guests expect to visit include Michael and Carole Middleton along with George's aunt and uncle Pippa and James Middleton. His other uncle Prince Harry will unfortunately miss out on the celebrations because he is in Africa as part of his three-month trip to work on conservation projects.

Official photos were released to mark Prince George's first birthday

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are also unable to attend the party as they are on an official visit to the West Country. They are reportedly planning to spend time with George and his baby sister Princess Charlotte towards the end of the week.

Royal fans will be hoping to see more official photos of George released for his special day. For his first birthday, photos were published in which the youngster showed off his walking skills for the first time as well as paying a visit to the Natural History Museum with his proud parents.

The Royal Mint will also release a limited edition commemorative £5 coin featuring the legend of St George and the dragon for George's second birthday. Just 7,500 sterling silver coins have been minted, and have been given the seal of approval from his parents, the Queen and the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
