3 Stars, Including Kate Middleton, Who Partied Hard On New Year’s Eve

Posted by Katie F. on January 2nd, 2012

This was Prince William and Kate Middleton’s first New Year together as a married couple and they made sure to celebrate. Will and Kate were expected to spend New Year’s Eve with Prince Charles and his wife Camilla in Scotland, but instead attended a party in Kate’s parents’ backyard. The whole affair was planned by Kate’s sister Pippa, who works for an events company in London. It wasn’t just a regular party though – it took place in a teepee. Pippa decided to set up the tent, which is typically used by nomadic herders for shelter from snow, just as it is becoming a popular party venue in Britain. Attendees called it a “canvas palace” and it came fully equipped with lighting, a dance floor, and seating for over 100 people. As for Will’s brother Prince Harry, he decided to spend the night at a nightclub at a Swiss ski resort.

They may not have been in a teepee, but most other stars partied on New Year’s Eve too. Here’s how some other celebrities rung in 2012.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry partied at Soho House in West Hollywood. Perry was in a private room with a group of friends. Witnesses said she seemed to be in a “great mood” and she spent the night dancing and talking to a guy.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga performed several songs for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. She helped New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg drop the ball and then kissed him at midnight. Gaga called the whole night  “a dream come true.”
