Kate Middleton's Birthday Present From Prince William Revealed?

Kate Middleton celebrates her 31st birthday on Wednesday 9 January, but after surprising her with an adorable puppy named Lupo last year, Prince William AKA the Duke will have to work hard to do better this year. We heard through the grapevine that Wills may have something very special hidden under his present-buying hat... a house!

It's rumoured that Wills is splashing out on a £5 million pad in the Home Counties, where pregnant Kate can relax away from prying eyes.

For her 30th, Kate's sis Pippa reportedly planned an all-swinging all-dancing eighties-themed shindig for the Princess, though it's thought to be a much more laid back affair this year... Being pregnant is the best excuse to put her Royal feet up.
