Prince William's 30th Birthday Party Is Sure to Be Royal (and British)

Celebrate the prince's birthday with tea, chocolate biscuit cake, and Disney

Missed the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee a few weeks ago? No need to worry. There might just be another reason for you to use all of those leftover British paper plates and bags of tea. Prince William turns 30 years old today, giving everybody another excuse to party it up British style.

Since this is actually a birthday, there must be cake. Now, if you were planning on celebrating the queen’s birthday, you could feature a portrait cake of the queen. However, what is stopping you from creating a birthday dessert in the prince’s likeness? Just kidding. Your guests will be just as excited to see the prince’s favorite chocolate cake after dinner.

When planning activities for all of your partygoers, choose fantasy over tradition. Skip the typical British birthday party games. Instead, opt for a Disney princess movie marathon. Show your guests Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Aladdin. Hum along to "Someday My Prince Will Come." Start brainstorming ways you can follow in Kate Middleton’s footsteps. After all, this is a birthday party for the real-life Prince Charming.
