It's safe to say Kate Middleton and Prince William's kids — Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3 — are excited for Christmas. However, royal expert Katie Nicholl believes the pair won't go over-the-top when purchasing presents.
"George enjoys his iPad at school, both he and Charlotte are quite tech-savvy and, like most children, there probably are technical gadgets and such like on their wish list," she noted. "I'm sure they're not going to want for anything, but when it comes to technology and screens, they are careful not to spoil them with extravagant gifting."
Nicholl added, "If it is something that happens to be a computer game or something like that then they are cautious of screen time so it could be a more practical gift."
Meanwhile, Duncan Larcombe believes the three kiddos will have three different celebrations. "I think we’re looking at three Christmases rolled into one for William and Kate and their children," he said. "There will be Christmas on their own with their kids, the more formal celebrations at Sandringham with William’s family and then time with Kate’s family, the Middletons."
“I’m told that they’re definitely seeing their other grandparents, the Middletons, possibly for the New Year, either at Anmer or they may go to Carole and Michael’s home in Berkshire," Larcombe continued. "The Middletons will want to make Christmas as special as they can, especially after last year when coronavirus restrictions meant they didn’t get to see their grandchildren."
However, Kate, 39, doesn't want to go overboard.
"But something we know for sure about William and Kate is that they want their children to feel normal and so they certainly won’t be lavishing them with expensive gifts. That’s for certain," he noted. "They won’t let them be spoiled.”
Despite Queen Elizabeth's hectic year, she is looking forward to being around her brood. "This year, more than ever, it is incredibly important to Her Majesty to be surrounded by her loved ones," a source spilled to The Mirror. "After being forced to cancel a host of engagements, the family get-together will be the perfect tonic."
