Prince William reveals how his family will celebrate Christmas

The royal reveals what’s in store for his adorable family come Christmas time

Christmas is fast approaching, and it seems no one’s more excited for Santa to arrive than Prince George!

His doting dad, Prince William, has revealed that the cheeky two-year-old “will be bouncing around like a rabbit” during the festive holiday.

“If I get any sleep on Christmas Eve, it’ll be good,” he joked in a new interview with The Big Issue magazine.

Of course, this Christmas will be a new experience for William and wife Kate, as it will be their first with darling seven-month-old daughter Princess Charlotte.

“So that will be two children, one who suddenly appreciates Christmas, which could be quite challenging. But I’m looking forward to it,” William revealed.

This year, there are reports the family will host the Middletons at Anmer Hall rather than going to Sandringham House to celebrate with the Queen, as they have done in the past.

In previous years the family has also marked the occasion by going to church, and William indicated it will be much the same this time around. Afterwards, they’ll open presents – and that’s where the fun really starts for George!

“We’ll watch George try to tackle his presents as he tries to unwrap them. It’s a very different experience at Christmas, having a family of your own,” William said.

“It’d be nice if we got a white Christmas because we haven’t had one in many years.”
