According to a source that spoke with Closer Weekly, the birthday party is not entirely canceled, and the royal parents will hold "something smaller with immediate family."
Kate and Prince William visited the NHS 111 on March 20 to thank the staff for their efforts, and Prince William reached out to the people of the UK with words of encouragement during a video two days before.
With their movements being watched "avidly" by netizens and the press alike, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams told Express that Prince William and Kate have a "considerable responsibility" resting on their shoulders during this time.
Following government instruction to self-quarantine since Prime Minister Boris Johnson enforced a lockdown in England, the senior members of the royal family are all at their respective residences of choice.
Kate and Prince William reportedly opted to leave their residence in Kensington Palace and stay at their Anmer Hall estate in Sandringham during the lockdown, while Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth went to Windsor Castle.
Camilla Parker Bowles and Prince Charles are residing at his Balmoral estate in Scotland, and the 71-year-old royal is the first in the family to have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Prince Charles will stay in self-isolation for the next two weeks, and while Camilla also got tested, her results came back negative. According to Prince Charles' doctors, he "remains in good health" after experiencing mild symptoms of the respiratory disease.
Prince William and Kate will also get to spend extra time with their oldest two children Charlotte and George, since their school, Thomas's Battersea, reportedly switched to online learning until the end of term, which ends on March 26.
On Sunday, Kate and Prince William also made sure to celebrate Mother's Day in the UK with a special message to their followers, and never-seen-before pictures.
Reaching out to all families, whether they are apart or together during this "difficult time," the royal couple wanted them to know that "we are thinking of you all."
