Kate Middleton Reveals That Prince George and Princess Charlotte Broke a Royal Christmas Tradition

  • Kate Middleton attended the royal family’s annual Christmas Day service in Sandringham this week, accompanied by Prince William, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle.
  • While Princess Charlotte and Prince George weren’t present at the church service, Kate was seen a few days prior doing some last-minute shopping with her two eldest children.
  • Speaking to a member of the crowd outside the church in Sandringham, Kate apparently revealed that George and Charlotte had broken one of the royal family’s Christmas traditions this year.

Kate Middleton looked stunning in a festive red coat on Christmas Day as she attended the royal family’s traditional church service this week. But missing from the festivities were Kate and Prince William’s children—Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis.

But according to The Mirror, the Duchess of Cambridge discussed her kids as she spoke to fans who’d come out to greet the royals. Apparently, Kate revealed to a member of the crowd that Prince George and Princess Charlotte got “up very early” on Christmas Day. Despite the fact that the royal family is well-known to have a tradition of opening their presents on Christmas Eve, it certainly sounds as though the little royals were up early to unwrap some gifts, presumably from Santa.
