It could be a very merry – and very busy – Christmas for Prince William, Kate Middleton and their children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis this year. According to Okay! magazine, an expert reveals that they are pretty much like us on holiday (minus the whole prince and princess thing). And like so many others, the royal family may be splitting their time among loved ones by splitting their Christmas celebration into three separate occasions in December.
Royal Family expert and author That’s what Duncan Larcombe suggests Prince William and Middleton are likely to take time to see each of their families – including an intimate celebration for their own immediate family, a reunion with Prince William’s royal side and another visit to Middleton’s family. “I think we’re looking at three Christmas Eves gathered for one for William and Kate and their children,” Larcombe told Okay!. “There will be Christmas on their own with their children, the more formal celebrations in Sandringham with Williams’ family and then time with Kate’s family, the Middletons.”

Although the term “royal” may be associated by some with abundance or wealth, Larcombe is convinced that Prince William and Middleton will not spoil Prince George, Princess Charlotte or Prince Louis, just because they could hold more Christmas celebrations. “But something we know for sure about William and Kate is that they want their children to feel normal, and so they certainly will not shower them with expensive gifts, that’s for sure,” he said. “They will not let them be spoiled.” However, it is still a tradition that the children of the royal family are showered with gifts from the public during the holiday season. “There are protocols for what happens to these gifts and the children will be protected from them,” Larcombe said.
We are sure that the children will not mind enjoying more Christmas festivities this year – but what they can expect at each of the three Christmas gatherings is a little different. “The Sandringham Christmas is quite formal and traditional, and the royals do not usually go for lavish gifts,” Larcombe remarked about the royal family’s Christmas affair at the Sandringham Estate. As for Prince William and Middleton’s private Christmas celebration, it sounds like a simple and quiet moment in their own residence in Norfolk, England. “I think William and Kate will make their own traditions by holding a small family Christmas and presents under the Christmas tree in Anmer,” he said. And as for Middleton’s side of the family, the expert is sure that time will be set aside shortly after Christmas takes place. “I’m told they’ll definitely see their other grandparents, Middletons, possibly for the New Year, either in Anmer, or they can go to Carole and Michael’s home in Berkshire,” Larcombe said.
