Who can believe that Princess Charlotte will be turning five on Saturday! It doesn’t seem like five years since we were celebrating the birth of William and Catherine’s second child.
Well she is and although the country is currently in lockdown and members of The Royal Family are isolating at various residences, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are arranging the biggest Zoom birthday party with cakes, games and even an appearance from The Queen.
Every parent whose child has had a birthday during lockdown will know the struggles of trying to keep their children entertained on their special day and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are no exception.
The family are spending lockdown at Anmer Hall in Norfolk and William and Kate were keen to ensure Charlotte had “all the fun of a birthday” on Saturday, despite the unprecedented circumstances that COVID-19 has produced.
According to The Sun, “The family has arranged a Zoom party for her so she can speak to family and friends. Then, they have put together a full plan that will give her all the fun of a birthday – including cake and games – despite the extraordinary circumstances we are faced with. Her great-grandmother will be joining the family call on the big day. As far as Charlotte is concerned, the important part is that her whole family are by her side to say: Happy Birthday.”
Anmer Hall is on the 20,000 acre Sandringham Estate and has meant the family has been able to enjoy long walks and picnics while still remaining isolated.
Prince Philip, who is isolating with The Queen at Windsor Castle, is also expected to join the Zoom call.
