There have been a number of events in the run-up to his actual birthday. But, the big day itself is being marked with a huge celebration at Buckingham Palace.
Prince Charles’ birthday is on November 14 and it’s a big one as he’s turning 70.
However, while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be in attendance, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are going to miss this one.
Prince William and Kate Middleton are due to attend an official engagement in Barnsley at a Centrepoint hostel. That hostel provides emergency accommodation for young adults and teenagers in need.
Princess Diana was a patron of this charity.

When Princess Diana was the part of the royal family, she was the patron of this charity. And so, this makes it very important for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to attend the engagement.

William became a patron of the charity in the year 2015. He has previously spoken about how it is a “selfless service”. And it is also the first charity he ever wanted to work with.
A spokesperson for the Kensington Palace commented on the clash in schedules.
The spokesperson said that it’s a working day as usual for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate. So unfortunately, the royal couple will be missing Prince Charles’ birthday bash this year.
A statement obtained by The Sun says:-

“As it is a normal working day, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have official engagements during the daytime. They will be visiting important projects in South Yorkshire”.
“These were of course cleared with the Clarence House. It was done to make sure they didn’t clash with any birthday celebrations”.
We’re sure they will have their own private family celebration aside from the big bash at the palace.
