The Duke of Cambridge was given permission to throw a party at a house at Queen Windsor Castle or the Sandringham estate later this summer after agreeing that the couple should “celebrate their significant birthdays in style”, royal sources revealed.
The future king will turn 40 tomorrow – Tuesday.
Like older members of the royal family, including the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Queen can attend the celebrations of William and Kate, in keeping with the royal tradition of celebrating the milestones of the decade for older family members.
However, the 96-year-old monarch, who has been suffering from growing mobility problems in recent months, will not confirm until the day of the party, a source from the palace confirmed.

Historically, lavish celebrations have been organized to celebrate several family members together.
One such extravagant royal party was held in June 2000 at Windsor Castle to celebrate the 40th birthday of Prince Andrew, 50th Princess Anne, 70th Princess Margaret and 18th Prince William.
First royal, William will not have his birthday marked by waving Union flags on government buildings to mark the birthdays of senior members of the royal family, following the expulsion of Prince Andrew from royal office following his involvement in a sexual abuse scandal.
Today, it turned out that the Queen and the Prince of Wales will be the only members of the royal family whose birthdays will be celebrated in such a way.
Andrew was removed from the list on the government website, but also the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Royal Princess.
Royal sources said the decision was made to spare Andrew any embarrassment after he was forced to pay £ 12 million to deal with a civil case of sexual assault in the US in February.
The Duke of York (62) was forced to leave public life due to his friendship with billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
Guidelines on certain days when the Union flag must be flown on British government buildings seem to have changed on February 11 this year.
It was just four days before Andrew reached his out-of-court settlement with his prosecutor Virginia Giuffre, a month after the Queen stripped him of his military patronage and he gave up his Highness style, and a week before his 62nd birthday.

His 60. 2020 caused heated controversy after the private secretary sent notes to the permanent secretary of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Self-Government in which he reminded them to fly the flag in his honor.
The government later said it would not be necessary.
He said of the Cambridges Kensington Palace’s joint birthday party: “We are not commenting on private plans.”
