The mother-of-three has decided to throw a celebratory bash at her £4.7million Bucklebury mansion instead of jetting off on holiday this year.
Carole wrote in her Party Pieces newsletter: “Is it just me or has January flown by? Which means it is nearly my birthday. I often go away on holiday for my birthday, but this year I am bringing the sunshine to me by throwing a party featuring lots of bright and bold colours. If you’ve got a birthday coming up soon, take a look at my edit for inspiration.”
The Middleton matriarch offered further insight into what birthday bashes look like at her home, enthusing: “I love decorating with fabric bunting, as it’s great to have a decoration that can be used year after year!”
Princess Kate and Prince William’s children George, nine, Charlotte, seven, and Louis, four, will likely be reunited with Pippa’s children Arthur, four, Grace, one, and the newest addition to the family, baby Rose, at the party.
Carole and her husband Michael Middleton live in the village of Bucklebury, Berkshire, which is less than an hour’s drive from Wales’ new abode Adelaide Cottage.
The seven-bedroom, grade II-listed Georgian property has ample space for the upcoming festivities, including a drawing room, a library, and 18 acres of land.
