Carole Middleton, Kate Middleton’s mother, has revealed what was one of her children’s favorite toys while growing up-hinting at the fact that it would be the perfect Christmas gifts for her four grandchildren, Kate’s three Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis and Pippa’s one child, Arthur.
Carole, who herself has three children, Kate Middleton, Pippa Middleton and James Middleton, shared a message on her Party Pieces Instagram account this week, accompanied with a photo of the perfect stocking filter.
The 65-year-old wrote: “I find that the smallest present can be the one that gives the most enjoyment and entertainment to children. I remember that when they were young, my children found flexi-figures like these totally absorbing.
“A good choice of stocking fillers can give one extra time, undisturbed in bed on Christmas Day. Invaluable!”
As of yet, it is still unknown whether Carole and her husband Michael Middleton will be able to spend Christmas Day with their grandchildren, due to the current government restrictions.
Prince William and Kate also have not confirmed where they will be spending the holiday season. The couple usually takes their children and goes to their Norfolk country home, Anmer Hall, which is located close to the Sandringham Estate, where the Queen spends her Christmas, giving them the chance to spend some festive time with her.
But, this year things are a bit different, as the Queen and her husband Prince Philip have decided to remain in Windsor for Christmas. So that opens the door for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to decide to spend Christmas with Kate’s parents as part of their bubble.
If so this, this will mark the third time that William and Kate have missed Christmas at Sandringham, which they did in 2012 and 2016, both times joining the Middletons at their home in Bucklebury.
Carole has previously given some insight into what her family Christmas might look like this year, during the still on-going global pandemic.
In another message shared on the Party Pieces Instagram, she explained: “We may not be able to get together but, after a year like 2020, we need to remember what’s really important this Christmas.
“For me, what really matters is that my family feels connected. I normally let my grandchildren help me decorate the tree.
“This year, I’ll ask them by video call to decide which decoration should go where. It may need to be tastefully rearranged later…!”
