Covid-19 means this Christmas will definitely not be the same with families separated and quarantined. But despite the physical distance, Carole Middleton said it was still important for her family to feel “connected”.
Duchess Kate’s mom, Carole has revealed that she will decorate her Christmas tree over Zoom with her four grandchildren, because of travel and visiting restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic, she has revealed.
Carole shared the insight in a ‘winter message’ to followers of her celebration company Party Pieces. The picture, which was posted to the company’s Instagram account, saw the grandmother dressed in a sleek black velvet top, silver trousers combined with black heels.
“We may not be able to get together but, after a year like 2020, we need to remember what’s really important this Christmas,” Kate Middleton’s mom, who is also grandmother to 2-year-old Arthur wrote.
“For me, what really matters is that my family feels connected,” wrote Carole, 65. “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…!”
“Curating our Christmas ranges gave me some joy and escapism, and I hope they help you feel the same. From alternative advent calendars to Christmas decorations and stocking fillers, Party Pieces has everything you need for this festive season, which we hope is a safe and happy one for all.
Last year, in her first-ever interview with The Telegraph, Carole Middleton revealed that each year she gives her grandchildren their own Christmas tree to decorate.
She told that she loves the festive time of year and she likes to have as many trees around the house as possible, including in the grandchildrens’ rooms: “so that they can decorate it themselves.”
