A group of friends that included longtime pals Thomas van Straubenzee, David Jardine Paterson and Prince Harry were there to celebrate as well, indulging in a home-cooked dinner at a rented house in the evening. As Eonline.com reports, Kate did the shopping for the meal herself that day (though we're not certain about who took charge of the pots and pans).
