Carole Middleton has revealed a special family Christmas tradition that Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis will take part in at her home.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s mother, who lives in Berkshire with her husband Michael, took to Instagram and posted an image of a light-up tree topper. She wrote: “Once again this year we plan to have two Christmas trees: one for the children to decorate and one which I do myself. My beloved tree-top angel is looking a little worse for wear after years of service so it’s time to invest in something new. This Light Up Gold Star will bring an extra twinkle to proceedings.”
Carole also plans to make her grandchildren laugh this year with a few novelty Christmas decorations, including a pair of festive Nordic gnomes.
“I’m going to need a few of these cheeky chaps this December, to hide around the house and make my grandchildren laugh,” Carole wrote on Instagram. “As much as I love immaculate decorations, we can’t be too serious at Christmas!”
Carole Middleton has also previously written about how Christmas Eve is a ‘special occasion in her family’ after hinting at Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis’ excitement over a visit from Santa Claus.
Meanwhile, Prince William and Kate 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.
If they decide to spend the holiday with the Middleton’s it 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.
