Our streets were something of a ghost town last Halloween as we battled a second wave of Covid-19. Traditional parties and dressing up were strictly a family affair if they happened at all, but with this year’s Halloween falling on a weekend at the end of half term, we might just see full-on fright night celebrations across the country.
And according to Royal Expert and Author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story Duncan Larcombe, one thing we can be sure of is that the Cambridges will be taking part in the fun.
“We know the royals love dressing up and throwing a good party and I think it would be fair to assume that the Cambridges will go to town at Halloween,” he says.
“Kate Middleton obviously has fond memories of Halloween nights and parties with her parents and family. There’s a photo of her dressed in a witchy outfit in her twenties so she’s kept the tradition going and no doubt she’s passed that love of dressing up to her kids.

“Prince William is known to like dressing up too. He had a huge fancy dress party at Windsor Castle for his 21st and the royals in general like to throw a good family party. They’re no strangers to making their own family fun.
“George, Charlotte and Louis’ grandmother, Carole Middleton, is an expert at parties as she runs her own party supplies website – Party Pieces. She’s credited with organising several birthday celebrations for her grandchildren, including a football-themed one for George’s sixth birthday.
“You can’t really imagine a family like the Middletons not marking Halloween. I wouldn’t be surprised if Kate has got everything she needs for a family party from her mum’s website.”
Granny Carole certainly has plenty of Halloween ideas on her Party Pieces website, including dressing up outfits, decorations and accessories.
There’s an eye-catching spider tiara, which might be perfect for insect-loving six-year-old Charlotte.
And how about a knight’s costume and shield for eight-year-old heir to the throne George or a swashbuckling pirate outfit for three-year-old Louis.
Maybe Kate will choose the giant cascade spider decoration, which retails at £15.99 and present food for the kids from Carole’s on-trend Skeleton Sharing Board, which costs £17.99.
Two years ago, Kate was spotted in Sainsbury’s near the family’s Norfolk home Anmer Hall browsing Halloween outfits for the children. So might the family leave London’s Kensington Palace and head to Norfolk this half term?

“Even before Covid, it looked like Anmer Hall was the Cambridges’ main family home and where they like to spend most of their time so I think they’re likely to head there again,” says Duncan.
“You can understand it. Kensington Palace where they live in term time is a tourist attraction and while they’ve got some privacy they can’t just wander off to the park with the kids.
“The video they released of themselves out with their wellies, running on the beach, toasting marshmallows, that’s their real life and the life they love so I think they’ll always take every opportunity to spend time there.
“Hopefully, they’ll get a chance to have some Halloween fun this half term along with the rest of us this year.”
