Princess Charlotte will spend her fifth birthday in isolation next Saturday, but will enjoy a video call with the royal family, a source has claimed.
The daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who is currently isolating in Norfolk with her family, is likely to chat over the phone with her great-grandmother The Queen and other loved ones on her special day, a source told the Sun.
In spite of the extraordinary circumstances around her birthday this year, Kate Middleton and Prince William have reportedly planned a fun day for their daughter’s birthday on their Anmer Hall home.
And the young royal does not seem to mind that her celebrations might be a bit different this year, as she is reportedly told to only be concerned about whether everyone would be united to wish her ‘Happy Birthday.’

‘The family has arranged a Zoom party for her, so she can speak to family and friends. Then, they have put together a full plan that will give her all the fun of a birthday – including cake and games – despite the extraordinary circumstances we are faced with,’ a source said.
‘Her great-grandmother will be joining the family call on the big day. As far as Charlotte is concerned, the important part is that her whole family are by her side to say: “Happy Birthday”.’
The source went on to say that the young princess, who is used to tablets and video calls, will not be fazed by spending her birthday in isolation.
It is hoped Prince Philip, 98, currently isolating with the Queen at Windsor Castle, will be able to join the call.

The source went on to say that the Duke of Edinburgh had taken a special interest in his great-granddaughter due to their shared ‘mischievous’ streak.
The two are said to have enjoyed a lot of time together, as Anmer Hall is close to the Sandringham Estate, where Philip has been staying since retiring in 2017.

Taken at Anmer Hall, their Norfolk home, this month by his doting mother Kate, they show that Louis is growing up fast.
Gone are the little wisps of baby hair and chubby face we have been used to seeing.
Instead he is now a proper cheeky little boy, full of life just like his brother, Prince George, six, and sister.

Prince William, 37, Kate Middleton, 38, Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, are bunking down at the spacious country mansion, and the Cambridge children are said to be enjoying roaming the acres of land.
William and Kate, whose main residence is Kensington Palace headed to their 10-bedroom country mansion on Saturday 28 March, announcing they were launching a £5million scheme today to support the nation’s mental health at a time of high anxiety during the lockdown.
Spacious Anmer Hall, with its 20,000 estate, is a perfect playground for the Cambridge children.
A source said the royal children were spending their time outdoors, whether it was bird or insect watching, climbing on their climbing wall or dipping their toes in the estate’s swimming pool.
