Duchess Catherine and Prince William
Duchess Catherine is planning a huge bash for Prince William's 30th birthday.
The British royal - who turned 30 in January - has held a series of meetings with her husband's closest pals in order to arrange a party he will never forget, sources have told entertainmentwise.com.
Prince William will reach the milestone age on June 21, and although details of the bash are being kept under wraps, Catherine Is said to be ''pulling out all the stops''.
The Duchess of Cambridge - previously Kate Middleton - has already sorted out one of the presents for William, a royal portrait of herself.
Catherine posed for the canvas artwork - which was painted by royal artist Nicky Philipps, who has also painted William and Prince Harry in the past- on four separate occasions while her husband was away on a six-week tour of duty in the Falklands earlier this year.
A source said: 'Most couples wouldn't think a picture of a loved one would be a great present, but this is a big deal.
'It's the first portrait Catherine has sat for, which is a huge thing for the royals.'
William's father, Prince Charles, is thought to be paying for the present, and the duchess is said to have plenty more gifts 'up her sleeve' for her husband's birthday.
