Kate Middleton Birthday: Prince William May Surprise The Duchess Of Cambridge With A House

It's going to be quite the birthday for Kate Middleton, if Royal reports are true.

According to insider sources, Prince William will be buying the Duchess of Cambridge a house — yes, a house — in honour of her 31st birthday on Wednesday, January 9.

PerezHilton.com quotes insiders as saying: "They've talked about getting a place where they can get away from it all. And now Wills has narrowed down the list to a few incredible places in Hampshire and Buckinghamshire around the £5 million mark."

It's a gift that would be a massive step up from the one the Duke of Cambridge bestowed upon Kate last year: Lupo, their pet cocker spaniel.

And what of a Royal birthday celebration? Marie Claire is reporting Kate would like to celebrate with a small family lunch or dinner. This will be Kate's last birthday bash before becoming a mom. Quotes the magazine: "Wills and the Middleton family are planning a very quiet do, but there'll be a 'surprise element', which could be one of two things."
