Duchess ‘very jolly’ on NYE

Duchess of Cambridge

The Duchess of Cambridge is reportedly celebrating the New Year at a low-key affair with her sister Pippa.

The 31-year-old British royal was spotted out with her sister Pippa Middleton at a mutual friend’s home in Bucklebury, England Tuesday night.

And according to onlookers Duchess Catherine appeared happy to be celebrating the approach of 2014 with close loved ones.

"Kate looked incredible. She was very jolly and very happy,” an eyewitness told People magazine.

"The thing that really strikes you is that she is just so normal and smiley. There are no lights on Kate here, so she can be totally relaxed and herself."

Catherine gave birth to her first child with husband Prince William, a son named George, in July.

She was apparently glowing at the party and everyone was blown away by her beauty.

"[She] has really got her figure back. If anything she actually looks better now than before she had Prince George,” the eyewitness recalled.

"I came away from the party thinking, 'She looks really happy.' Kate really is glowing and full of life."

Catherine spent the holidays with the royal family this year at Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham estate.

William reportedly planned some fun activities for the guests which were inspired by his wife.

“Christmas in previous years has been formal and duty-filled. Timetables and instructions were even handed out to guests! But Wills’ Christmas with the Middletons last year made him realise how much more enjoyable the festive period could be and he’s been campaigning with Kate to bring that informal flavour to the royal fold,” a source explained to a British magazine recently.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
