Kate Middleton has thanked fans as she received “kind wishes” on her 39th birthday.

The Duchess of Cambridge said her birthday, like many others, has been “very different” due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kate, who recently beat Meghan Markle and Holly Willoughby as the UK’s most stylish fashion icon of 2020, shared her gratitude on her and husband Prince William’s joint Instagram account Kensington Royal.

The post shows the Duchess wearing a stunning white and blue floral face mask along with navy blue gloves and a coat of the same colour with a cream jumper underneath.

Meanwhile Prince Harry and Meghan Markle do not have a public Instagram account, since they stepped down from their roles as senior royals, and therefore haven’t shared a public message to Kate.
