Prince William made a big romantic gesture to Kate Middleton to celebrate Valentine’s Day on Monday. The couple have been married for eight years, but the Duke of Cambridge, 39, still knows how to surprise Middleton, 40. Their children – Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3 – are also said to have joined in the Valentine’s Day fun.
‘William surprised Kate with a huge box of 50 roses on Valentine’s Day,’ source says We Weekly Wednesday. “He hand-wrote the most romantic message on her card, congratulating her on being such a wonderful wife and mother.” Their children also gave their parents the handmade Valentine’s Day cards they made at school.
Since William and Middleton recently celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary, the two aren’t interested in planning an “extravagant” Valentine’s Day, the insider says. We Weekly. “William and Kate are homebodies, so their date nights tend to be chilly,” the source continued. “They watch Netflix and documentaries when the kids are in bed, order takeout, play Scrabble and enjoy a few glasses of wine. For them, it’s the simple things in life that matter.”
The Duke and Duchess don’t have much time for themselves to celebrate Valentine’s Day. Middleton’s next big project is a short trip to Denmark later this month to find out more about what’s being done there in the area of early childhood learning, a cause close to his heart. It was also reported last week that the Duke and Duchess would travel to the Bahamas, Jamaica and Belize next month to strengthen ties between Queen Elizabeth II and Caribbean countries. The trip will focus on William’s environmental causes, including a stop at a coral farm in the Bahamas that won one of William’s first Earthshot awards last year, reports The telegraph.
Prince Charles made headlines last week when Clarence House confirmed William’s father had tested positive for COVID-19 for a second time. Charles’ wife, Camila Parker Bowles, also later tested positive. Concern has increased this time since the prince met his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, 95, just two days before he tested positive. The news came at an important time for the Royal Family, as the Queen celebrated her 70th Ascension Day on February 6. She is the first British monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee in history. Entertainment is planned until June.
When the Queen released a statement on the 70th anniversary of her birth, she said she hoped the Duchess of Cornwall would be called Queen Consort when Charles became King. “When, in due time, my son Charles becomes king, I know that you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and I sincerely hope that, when the time comes, Camilla will be known as the Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service,” the Queen wrote at the time.
