Prince Louis, four, is set to join the family’s traditional Christmas Day walk to church for the first time.
Every Christmas senior Royal Family members get together for the annual Christmas Day walk to the St Mary Magdalene Church service in Sandringham.
However, this year younger members of the Firm are expected to make appearances as well.
Prince Louis, four, is tipped to join the annual walkabout for the first time.
The youngest Wales child captured the nation’s heart with his antics at the jubilee celebrations in June.

The snaps of him making faces and covering his ears went viral and were enjoyed worldwide.
The final decision about the important Sandringham milestone will not be made until the day itself, it has been reported.
The annual Christmas church service tradition dates back many decades.
The late Queen herself was once photographed as a young Princess heading to church with her parents, King George VI and the Queen Mother, and sister Princess Margaret.

Aside from a few years in the 1960s when the Royal Family spent the holidays at Windsor Castle, they always stayed at Sandringham House for Christmas and New Year’s, which means that come Christmas Day, they attended services at St Mary Magdalene, a church on the estate.
In recent years, the public have delighted in seeing the Prince and Princess of Wales along with Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven, smartly dressed for the special day.
The building dates back to the 1500s, and the interior has an interesting connection to the United States.
The silver pulpit, 17th-century Spanish processional cross, and decorated chancel were all gifts from Philadelphia department store magnate Rodman Wanamaker to Queen Alexandra, in tribute to King Edward VII.
In the early 1900s, Wanamaker also gifted another prized object to the Royal Family – a jewelled Bible.

According to People, the bible is “covered in brass and gold and decorated with 500 precious stones, including sapphires, emeralds, and white opals”.
Every year, royal fans line the path to the church during the Christmas service, hoping to catch a glimpse of their favourite Duke or Duchess as they walk in.
Following the service, the late Queen traditionally collected flowers from local children, who lined up for their moment with the monarch.
However, this year will be the first year the Firm is led by King Charles.
It is hoped the cheeky Prince Louis will give proceedings a lift, when he joins his siblings.
Charlotte was four when she took part in her first Christmas walkabout in 2019.
She stunned crowds by giving hugs to royal fans, including one who gave her an £1.50 inflatable flamingo toy.
