Kate Middleton stays up until midnight on her children’s birthdays for a sweet tradition

What pieceful birthday that the royal children have.

On Sunday, Kate Middleton and Prince William’s youngest child, son Prince Louis, turned five – and it’s a birthday that’s marked in sweet tradition, with her mother likely staying until midnight for a very special reason.

In 2019, Middleton revealed that she likes to bake her own cakes for her children on their birthdays and usually stays up until she is 12 to do so.

“I love baking the cake,” she admitted during a 2019 BBC Christmas special called “A Berry Royal Christmas,” where she teamed up with expert baker Mary Berry to prepare festive dishes for those who work with their various charities.

“It’s become a bit of a tradition that I stay up until midnight with ridiculous amounts of cake mix and frosting and overdo it,” Middleton said at the time. “But I love this.”

The Post has contacted representatives of the royal family for further comment.

In honor of his fifth birthday, Middleton and her husband have posted some rare photos of Prince Louie on their official Instagram page. The images were captured by accomplished portrait photographer Millie Pilkington.

In the first photo, Middleton is seen pushing the prince in a wheelbarrow, as he smiled happily, dressed in a blue jacquard-print jumper and matching dark blue shorts.

The other shot was a close-up of the little one’s face, as he smiled at the camera.

“Someone turns 5 tomorrow… 🎂 🥳,” the royals wrote in the caption of the post. “A very happy birthday to Prince Louis.”

And Prince Louis isn’t the only royal to have a spring birthday – on May 2, Princess Charlotte turns 8 and may also have a special cake baked by her mum.

The Princess’ birthday comes days before the coronation ceremony for her grandfather, King Charles, which is scheduled for Saturday, May 6, at Westminster Abbey.

The ceremony will mark the official transfer of the title and powers to the king, following the death of Queen Elizabeth II last September.

The star-studded event will feature performances from Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli and Katy Perry.

First lady Jill Biden will also be present.

It was announced earlier this month that Prince Harry would attend – but without his wife, Meghan Markle. Her appearance will be the first in the UK alongside the family since her explosive memoir, titled ‘Spare’, came out in January.

In the book, he claimed his stepmother, Camilla, the Queen Consort, “leaked stories” to British tabloids to “maintain her image”.

On Friday, The Telegraph reported that Markle allegedly sent a letter to King Charles about issues of racism in the royal family following his 2021 interview with Oprah.

The outlet claimed this was one of the reasons Markle would not be present at the royal coronation.

Markle’s team denied the letters were the reason for her absence in a statement to the Post.
