They might be heirs to the Kingdom, but these little children are just like any other and were so excited to get up early on Christmas Day to open their presents, and their mother candidly shared what it was like this year.


They might be heirs to the Kingdom, but these little children are just like any other and were so excited to get up early on Christmas Day to open their presents, and their mother candidly shared what it was like this year.

On December 25, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex took a walk outside St. Mary’s Magdalene church at Sandringham Estate, to meet the crowd gathered there to see the royals.

As Hello! reported, the public not only had the chance to see them but also chatted a little with the princes and their wives, and one woman used the opportunity to ask 36-year-old Kate Middleton how early her children woke up to their presents.


The question came from a 71-year-old retired seamstress named Jill Lee, who later shared the exclusive piece of news with the press. Read more on our Twitter account @amomama_usa

"I said to Kate 'were the children up early' and she said 'very early, but it was lovely to see their faces'."

2018 saw the arrival of two new members of the royal family, with 37-year-old Meghan Markle marrying into the family in May, and Middleton giving birth to Prince Louis, her third child, on April 23.


As much as rumors about some members of the family not getting along disrupt the peace at the Palace, there is no doubt that they have much to celebrate and thank, so the Queen has made sure to keep the Christmas spirits high for this season.

While a royal historian told the news outlet that the British royals follow the German tradition of exchanging presents on Christmas Eve, Middleton and Prince William’s older children wait for “Santa” and get their presents in the morning.

Middleton had previously shared that 5-year-old Prince George and 3-year-old Princess Charlotte were extremely excited about the holiday and were anxious for the big day to come as they kept singing Christmas songs and helping with the decorations.

“They’re getting excited for Christmas time because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and Christmas trees are going up. It’s very sweet,” Middleton said earlier in the month.

The mother-of-three hasn’t been shy to share details of the royals’ private life, recently revealing the sweet name George has for his father, as a royal fan told Express.

"Kate said that William was playing football with the children last night and one of them said, I think it was George, 'Are you playing football tomorrow, Pops?'" the anonymous source said.

George has been known to have a thing for nicknames. He calls his grandfather, Prince Charles, “Grandpa Wales,” and it was previously revealed that he calls the Queen “Gan-Gan.”
