British royal traditions that should be present on Kate Middleton’s birthday
However, this practice is being changed in 2022 in a bid to save money during the UK’s cost of living crisis. At the time of the decision, representatives of Westminster Abbey said that “the Abbey’s bells can be heard before services and during church celebrations.”
“Due to the financial challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic for the Abbey, and in consultation with Buckingham Palace, the bell will only ring for the birthdays of HM The Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales,” they said.
In celebration of her 41st birthday, Kate Middleton is looking forward to some peace and quiet at home with close friends and family.
