The 29-year-old will marry Britain’s Prince William at Westminster Abbey in London on April 29. In order to celebrate her last few weeks as a single girl, Kate’s sister Pippa is planning a weekend of fun for Kate and her closest friends in the last week of March.
Fifteen guests have been invited to the party, including several of William’s female cousins. Socialites Rose Astor and Emilia d’Erlanger, who are set to be Kate’s bridesmaids, will also attend.
“Kate was desperate to have a hen do, but a boozy night out on the town was never really an option – plus, that’s not really her style,” a source told Grazia.
Pippa is believed to have chosen one of the British royal family’s country homes – either Balmoral Castle in Scotland or Frogmore House in England – for the exclusive event.
On the first day, staff from Kate’s favourite London salon will travel to the secret location to treat guests to manicures and pedicures. A dinner, disco and karaoke have been planned for the second day, followed by a more formal lunch on the final day.
“The second night will start with a three-course dinner followed by dancing. Kate has apparently asked for her favourite DJ, Sam Young, and a karaoke machine,” the source added. “The next day will be more formal, with Kate’s mother Carole and William’s cousins Zara Phillips, along with Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie joining the hens for lunch.”
During the bachelorette party, Kate will be presented with a gold bracelet featuring a charm selected by each guest.
