When you're the Duchess of Cambridge, nothing is out of reach - including an audience with Adele.
Kate Middleton will celebrate her 34th birthday next month and preparations are already underway for the impressive bash. Oscar-winning singer Adele is set to perform at the royal party on January 9 at their home in Norfolk, Amner Hall.

"She asked her personal assistance to contact Adele's management team in the hope she'd be available for a private performance to celebrate Kate's birthday. Kate isn't into big birthdays, but is having a small soiree for close family and friends and is desperate to have Adele sing an acoustic version of her new material, plus a few of her old hits."
Adele is said to be "honoured" to be asked and is changing her schedule to accommodate the request. She has also made no secret of her desire to spend time with Britain's royal family.
"I'd love a night out with Prince Harry, he seems like a right laugh. I love Kate Middleton, she's brilliant. And I love William."
It's not the first time the young royals have been treated to VIP performances by stars - Ellie Goulding sang Your Song for their first dance at their 2011 wedding and Prince William sang with Taylor Swift and Jon Bon Jovi at a charity gala in 2013.
With a family of multi-millionaire party planners at her disposal, the Duchess' birthday bash is shaping up to be a memorable one.
