Somehow, Christmas is only 5 days away. With the festive season approaching fast, people are getting in the festive mood by rewatching their favorite Christmas movies. And the royal family are no different, with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge love settling down on the sofa for a good festive flick with their three children. When asked which movie is his go-to for watching when they need to get in the Christmas spirit, Prince William recently revealed it to be Elf, the 2003 classic.
During his appearance on the Radio Marsden podcast, the Duke of Cambridge revealed how he and his wife Kate, and their three children, love to spend the Christmas season. “It’s very funny and I keep watching it every Christmas, it still makes me laugh,” he said of the hit Will Ferrell movie, where he plays the titular elf Buddy.
When asked about other Christmas favorites, Prince William said that he loves listening to Feliz Navidad by Jose Feliciano. I mean you cant avoid it so might as well enjoy it.
One of the more important questions, and a vital part of the festive experience is the food, with Prince William also putting it pretty high on his list when it comes to Christmas. “Food is quite important to me at Christmas. I do tend to eat a lot at Christmas,” he admitted. “There’s always a tiny little bit of space left in my stomach somewhere for a bit more turkey or sausage or, you know, a bit of wine.”
When asked about what he would do if he were in charge of Christmas for the day, the royal simply replied: “Bring everyone together to have a big party.”
“There would definitely be no COVID,” he added.
The royal family, especially William and Kate, have been quite busy leading up to Christmas, so the festive break will be welcome. The Cambridge family will most likely be joining the Queen at her Sandringham Estate for Christmas, as the royal family have been gathering there for Christmas since the 1980s, with only last year being an exception.
“I think generally for me, bringing the family together at Christmas time is always lovely because we’re quite spread out doing our things a lot of the time during the year, and so we get very few moments to come together,” Prince William added.
This will also mark the first-ever Christmas without Prince Philip in over 50 years, as he sadly passed away in April this year. No doubt the other royal family members will be there for the Queen for this, trying to make it easier for the monarch. Something that the royal family have been reported to do during Christmas is play board games, but Prince William reveals that it often ends in a fair few family tiffs. “Usually everyone gets very cross about [playing] because they lose,” he laughed.
