Kate Middleton has a ridiculously cute birthday tradition with her three kids

Trine Jensen-Burke

As a mum, one of my very favourite things to do, is create little family traditions that I hope my children will love, cherish and want to recreate when they one day are all grown and have children of their own.

And it seems this is one thing Kate Middleton and I have in common.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 37, recently revealed in a documentary that she herself has a bit of an adorable birthday tradition for her three young children, and really you guys, this is so cute.

During the BBC special A Berry Royal Christmas, the mum-of-three revealed to celebrity baker Mary Berry that she usually stayed up late to make a cake before each child’s special day.

In the special, Kate and Prince William were joined by Berry, 84, to prepare food as a “thank you” to those who volunteered with their charity organisations over the course of the year.

Speaking about her birthday baking, Kate says:

“It’s become a bit of a tradition that I stay up until midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and icing and I make far too much,” the royal mama could reveal.

“But I love it.”

Kate and her husband, Prince William, have three children together: Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 19 months.
