A royal Christmas to remember! Even if they couldn’t spend the day with Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William And Duchess Kate they spent an unforgettable holiday with their children.

An insider tells exclusively Us Weekly that Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, woke up at 5am to see what Santa left under the tree for them.

“While Kate and William avoid over-indulging children, they let the rule slip at Christmas,” says the source.

The boys enjoyed their gifts for outdoor use, including a camping kit for George – complete with a tent, walkie talkie, and flashlight – and a climbing frame for Louis, the insider adds. Charlotte, meanwhile, has received a baby video camera that she adores. All three brothers enthusiastically unwrapped various games and books on Christmas morning as well.

The Duke of Cambridge, 39, made sure his wife, also 39, didn’t feel left out. “After a busy year, William wanted to make this Christmas even more special for Kate and surprised her with a beautiful bracelet,” explains the source.

Since the queen, 95, decided to stay at Windsor Castle for the holidays amid the most recent surge in COVID-19 cases, the family has not been involved in her usual family relationship in Sandringham. Instead, they held their quiet celebration at their country home, Anmer Hall, in Norfolk, England, and the Duchess of Cambridge threw a homemade party.

“Kate cooked a traditional Christmas feast for lunch: turkey, stuffing, pigs in the blankets, ham, roast potatoes and all the trimmings,” says the insider. We. The mother of three even “used her creative skills to decorate the table with candles, evergreen branches and cones as centerpieces”.

The younger royals helped their mom with dessert. “The kids helped Kate make a chocolate Christmas log and apple pie for dessert, but the highlight was creating a gingerbread house, topped with their favorite sweets,” says the source.

Traditional English Christmas “crackers” were present, with the whole family popping poppers in search of confetti, paper crowns and other novelties. Kids loved reading the jokes that stood next to the confetti, notes the insider.

The Cambridge also had the chance to video chat with the queen, Prince Charles and a few other royal relatives, who delighted the children.

After Christmas, the family celebrated Boxing Day on Sunday 26 December. It was a great day of play for William and George, who, as football fans, were disappointed that their favorite team, Aston Villa, had lost to Chelsea. “But they didn’t let that spoil the celebrations!” the source says.
