What does the most wonderful time of the year look like when you’re a royal? Pretty laid-back—at least, that’s how sources say Kate Middleton and Prince William are planning to celebrate the holidays with their kids. According to insiders who spoke to Us Weekly, the Cambridge parents are focused on making Christmas all about “family and giving back,” but they’ve also got a few surprises for Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis up their very regal sleeves.
The source says that while Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be out of town, Kate Middleton and Co. are heading up to Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham estate to welcome Santa as a family. “The way Kate sees it, it’s particularly important for all the royals to reunite and have fun this Christmas, especially after such a turbulent few months,” the source said.
“The kids can barely sleep, they’re so excited. Like every year, they’re going to leave a mince pie out for Santa,” the source continued, adding that the royal children “love dancing to Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas [Is You].’”
And their presents sound pretty great, too. Middleton and Prince William aren’t going anything too flashy, according to reports. Princess Charlotte reportedly asked for a pony, but her dad thinks she might be too young and is going with “a toy riding center” instead. “And George is really into tennis and has asked for a new racket,” the source said, adding they’ll also get play cooking sets “because they love making a mess in the kitchen!”
There’s one extra thing they’ll enjoy, as well: sugar. The sources say they’ve been sneaking treats from the Christmas tree, and that’s OK with their mom and dad: “Kate knows, but since it’s Christmas she lets them get away with having a few more sugary treats than usual.” Sounds like a super-cozy, fun time for everyone.
