Royal Christmas: Four festive traditions George and Charlotte could take part in this year

3376

THE ROYAL Family has a host of Christmas traditions, just like any other family. Here are four of the royal Christmas traditions Prince George and Princess Charlotte could take part in this year.

Every year, the Royal Family spends Christmas with the Queen at her Norfolk estate of Sandringham.

And after missing out on a family Christmas last year due to Covid, it is likely Prince George and Princess Charlotte will get to visit their great-grandmother again for the festivities this year.

In previous years, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have joined their parents for the traditional Christmas Day church service, along with the customary meet and greet with well-wishers who line the route.

So this year we might expect to see the Cambridge children on their way to church again,

The Cambridge family Christmas card

Every year, members of the Royal Family delight fans by releasing a Christmas card often featuring a new picture of the royals.

Last year William, Kate, Charlotte, George and little Prince Louis posed by a wooded background for their family Christmas card, all dressed in cute jumpers.

So we might expect George and Charlotte to appear on their parents’ Christmas card again this year.

Decorating the Christmas tree

As the Queen’s great-grandchildren, Prince George and Princess Charlotte get to help decorate the monarch’s Christmas trees as a sweet festive activity.

During a documentary titled ‘The Queen’s Green Planet’ a few years ago, the Queen spoke to a senior castle attendant about her Christmas trees, stating her great-grandchildren always enjoy knocking ornaments off.

She said: “Yes, that is always the problem, is the children love knocking those off.

“Well my great-grandchildren do, anyway they enjoy themselves.Queen at Christmas

“And the great thing is to make them decorate it and they’re a bit more careful.”

The Royal Family take their Christmas trees very seriously, with several trees presented in the Queen’s residences across the UK over the festive season.

The wife of King George III, Queen Charlotte, is believed to have been the first person to introduce the Christmas tree to the Royal Family.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert later popularised the Christmas tree even further, encouraging people to bring the trees into their own homes during the festive period.

All children around the country will be looking forward to opening their Christmas presents on Christmas Day this year.

And luckily for George and Charlotte, they may get to open their presents a bit earlier than other children if they stay around their great-grandmother’s for Christmas.

The Royal Family open their Christmas presents on Christmas Eve, which is thought to be a tribute to the Royal Family’s German heritage.
