... but at least Char­lotte had a 4th birth­day to re­mem­ber

Daily Mail - - Life - By Re­becca English Royal Correspond­ent

WIL­LIAM and Kate threw a ‘rowdy’ party for Princess Char­lotte’s fourth birth­day at Kens­ing­ton Palace yes­ter­day.

Ear­lier in the day, the Duke of Cam­bridge had said he was ex­pect­ing ‘lots of chil­dren’ to turn up for the cel­e­bra­tions.

He re­vealed the plans to ac­claimed chil­dren’s writer Ju­lia Don­ald­son, author of The Gruf­falo and Room On The Broom, as he made her a CBE dur­ing a Buckingham Palace in­vesti­ture cer­e­mony yes­ter­day. The for­mer Chil­dren’s Lau­re­ate said she chat­ted to the duke about the party for Char­lotte, pic­tured, and her book The Gruf­falo, which was pub­lished 20 years ago.

‘He said it’s his daugh­ter’s birth­day to­day and he loves the book,’ Mrs Don­ald­son said af­ter meet­ing Wil­liam.

‘He reads my sto­ries to his chil­dren, and he said he was go­ing to have quite a rowdy party – he’s got a lot of chil­dren (com­ing).’
