Carole Middleton shares childhood photo of daughter Catherine

Carole Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s mother, turned 67 on Monday, and her company tweeted a lovely family photo to commemorate the occasion.

Party Pieces shared a nice vintage photo of the entrepreneur and her three children, Kate, Pippa, and James Middleton, on Instagram.

Carole is seen beaming at the camera in this black and white photograph from 1989, with party bags and accessories put out on a table in front of her. Kate, the eldest daughter and future queen, is shown blowing a celebration horn next to her mother while wearing a jumper, a collared shirt, and a paper hat.

Pippa, the middle kid, is also shown with a party horn, lifting her hands in the air behind Carole, while James, the two-year-old, looks adorable in a polka dot cap.

The Instagram caption read: “Happiest of Birthdays to the party planner extraordinaire! We hope you have the most magical day.”


Instagram birthday tribute to Carole


Carole celebrated the 30th anniversary of her business, which began in the family’s garden shed, by posting the photo on the Party Pieces website in 2017.
The Middletons grew the company from a modest start-up unit to a warehouse at Child’s Court Farm in Reading, where it has resided since 1995.

The wonderful birthday message to Carole was accidentally posted a day early on Sunday, and the post was quickly erased.

It comes after the Duchess of Cambridge celebrated her 40th birthday on January 9th, with Kensington Palace releasing three new photos of her to commemorate the event.
