Ever since getting married in 2011, Prince William and his wife Duchess Kate have made it a point to alternate where they spent Christmas. At times they would spend it with the Queen and on other occasions, they would go to Kate’s family, the Middletons.


However, a source has now revealed that the Royal couple will no longer go back and forth. They’ve allegedly decided to spend every Christmas with the Queen.

An insider shared:

“Moving forward, Kate and William will continue to do Sandringham every Christmas Eve and Day as opposed to alternating like they used to.”

The same source shared that the couple would “visit the Middleton in Berkshire later in the festive season.” This decision will be implemented starting this year.

The Royal couple didn’t make the choice easily but they took into account a very important factor. The insider explained: “With the queen and Philip’s advancing ages, skipping years isn’t an option anymore.”

The Queen turned 92 this year, while her husband Prince Philip got three years shy of 100 at the age of 97. His elderly state led him to make headlines in April when he underwent hip surgery.


His operations forced him to skip the family’s Easter service that same month. However, the following month he was well enough to attend Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s wedding.

Harry and his wife are also set to join the Royal Family at Sandringham House in Norfolk, England. Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, was, however, not formally invited for the festivities.


This year, Kate and William will spend their first Christmas together as a family of five. In April the Duchess gave birth to a baby boy, Prince Louis and she also shares Prince George, 5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, with her husband.

A Royal insider said:

“It’s important to them that their kids share childhood traditions like their school pals. They’re going all-out to make it extra special.”
