Now magazine has revealed some significant details about Prince George's birthday party. It is reported Kate Middleton and Prince William are expected to keep the celebrations "low-key."

'If the christening was anything to go by, it will be a small, low-key celebration, similar to what their friends would throw for their children's first birthdays," revealed royal biographer Marcia Moody.

According to Moody, Kate Middleton and Prince William will most probably host a "tea party with lots of cake."

As for the birthday cake, it is reportedly most likely to come from Kate Middleton's brother James' cake company. Unlike her mother, Kate Middleton wouldn't be baking the first birthday cake for her son and may order a "specially decorated" treat from James' Nice Cakes.
