The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
William and Kate love welcoming in the new year with a cozy country house party. Even before she was married, Kate — along with her family — booked a holiday home in Scotland to celebrate the occasion, while she and William celebrated their first post-wedding new year in the Middleton's back garden. Kate's sister Pippa once hired a luxurious tipi-style "kata" that's usually used by reindeer herders. This one, however, is fancier, complete with a dance floor and big enough to fit 100 guests. William and Kate often spend NYE with the Middleton's, although in 2012 when Kate was in the early stages of her pregnancy with Prince George, William was on Search and Rescue duty and was called out in the early hours of the morning to look for a man who had been swept into the sea just after midnight. Meanwhile, Kate was in Berkshire with her family.
