It seems like Prince William and Kate Middleton's children, Prince George, 8, Princess Charlotte, 6, and Prince Louis, 3, are gearing up to celebrate the holidays — and they can hardly wait for December 25 to come around!
“On Christmas Eve, the Cambridges have a family ritual where they leave a glass of cherry, mince pie and shortbread cookies for Father Christmas,” an insider told Life & Style. “Last year the children were too excited to sleep the night before Christmas, and I’m sure it’ll be the same this year!”
Additionally, the family goes all out with their decor, as they buy “a huge Christmas tree and decorate it together as a family,” the source dished. “George, Charlotte and Louis are super creative and made their own ornaments to hang on the tree, including stars, angels and mini snowmen.”
“There are beautiful garlands covered in pine cones on the staircase at Anmer Hall, a stunning reef hanging on the door and a four-wick, supersized Jo Malone candle on the coffee table, so the house always smells so nice,” the insider added of the environment.
Of course, Kate, 39, loves to assist her tots when they make "window snowflakes" for their bedrooms, and of course, they hang up their "embroidered" stockings.
When it comes to presents, the couple don't like to go too crazy with 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," expert Katie Nicholl 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."
