What does one gift the Queen for Christmas? It seems Kate has worked out the answer.
In an interview for 2016 ITV documentary Our Queen at Ninety, Kate revealed she shuns the shops for her grandmother-in-law and instead makes something.
Prince William’s wife made a chutney using her own grandmother’s recipe.

Kate and William have revealed where they will be sending Princess Charlotte to nursery next year at the same time as sharing their Christmas card.
Kensington Palace tweeted: “Their Royal Highnesses have also announed this morning that Princess Charlotte will attend the Willcocks Nursery School in London from January 2018”.
Sharing the nursery’s reaction, they continued: “The Willcocks Nursery School have said: ‘We are delighted that The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen the Willcocks Nursery School for Princess Charlotte. We look forward to welcoming Charlotte to our nursery in January.'”

Princess Charlotte looks strikingly similar to one other member of the Royal Family in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s family Christmas card.
It has been noted on social media Charlotte looks very much like a young Queen Elizabeth in the picture.
Both share the same cheeky grin and chubby cheeks, with a similar eye shape too.

2018 will be a huge year for the Royal Family, with Kate giving birth in April and Prince Harry marrying girlfriend Meghan Markle in May.
But while Kate and William will attend, not all of their children are likely to. Royal weddings tend to feature children as attendants, so Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, would be a pageboy and Charlotte a flower girl.
But there would be no such role for a tiny baby – and Kate is unlikely to bring her newborn for one particular reason.
As the child may not have been seen in public much yet, Kate will not want to take attention from Harry and Meghan on their special day.

Kate and William are very traditional parents, it has been revealed, and have a no iPad policy for their children.
According to US Weekly, Princess Charlotte and Prince George are encouraged to play with classic toys and spend plenty of time in the fresh air.
The source said: “Neither like the idea of putting an iPad on in front of the kids.
“As two people who grew up without gadgets for entertainment, they’re firm believers in toys, outdoor play and encouraging an active imagination.”

If the couple do follow the trend, there is one particular name they may choose with a very royal background.
The most popular baby names for 2018 for both boys and girls have been predicted by Babygaga, and one of those on the girl’s list would make a perfect choice.
Since the couple have chosen classic British names so far, they are likely to do the same again, and this name is one of the most famous British names available.

Kate and William have not yet released the name of their third child, but there could be one big clue as to what it will be.
A survey conducted by Emma’s Diary has revealed a notable trend in names for 2018.
They found names ending with the letter ‘a’ show a strong trend for 2018, with almost 50 per cent of the names chosen by those surveyed, ending with the letter ‘a’.

Could the Cambridge family Christmas card reveal the gender of Kate Middleton’s baby?
All of the family were dressed in blue for the photograph, rather than a neutral colour.
The blue shade the Kate and William chose is also not particularly festive – did they choose it because it cleverly reveals the gender of their baby?
