Oh, to be a fly on the wall in Kensington Palace to hear what the Cambridge kids want for Christmas!
According to insiders, Prince George (7), Princess Charlotte (5) and Prince Louis (2) are well into the festive spirit and have “already written their list for Santa”.
They are also apparently nagging their parents, William and Kate, to put up the Christmas tree - which no doubt would provide a good distraction from the recent loss of their family dog, Lupo.
According to the source, the kids are all developing distinct little personalities with George the calmest and Charlotte and Louis the feistiest.
“Charlotte and Louis both have a cheeky streak. Louis is more like Charlotte in personality than George,” the insider reveals.
The future king is apparently still obsessed with helicopters and planes – an interest he developed as a toddler – so that is no doubt high on his Christmas list.
But he has also developed a new interest in marine biology so a book or two on the subject may be on his Christmas list too. “He can't wait to be old enough to go diving,” the source says.
Active Charlotte loves her gymnastics but has also recently taken up kid’s yoga. “The kids at school do it and she’s teaching Louis downward dog and tree pose.”
Meanwhile, it appears the Cambridges may be spending Christmas with Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, for the first time since 2012.
While the family normally gathers at the queen’s beloved Sandringham Estate in Norfolk over the holidays, Covid-19 concerns may well mean the get-together is cancelled this year.
A Sandringham insider says staff have been told not to expect Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip back for Christmas.
If so, it will be the royal couple’s first Christmas away from Sandringham since 1987.
The royal couple will then in all likelihood remain at Windsor Castle where they’ve spent most of this year quarantining.
