Carole Middleton Reveals Christmas Gift Similar to What Kate Middleton Received as a Child
The Duchess of Cambridge’s mother, Carole Middleton, gave fans a glimpse into her daughter’s childhood holiday tradition as she revealed a Christmas gift similar to what Kate usually received as a child.
With the holidays fast approaching, Kate Middleton’s mother, Carole Middleton, has given fans an insight into what her daughter enjoyed about Christmas as a child. Recently, Carole shared a post on her company, Party Pieces, Instagram page.
The royal grandmother uploaded a photo of a mini-Santa Claus wooden stocking filler with white beards, gold buttons, and the trademark big black belt surrounded by other figurines in the background.

She concluded, urging people to make the best choice of stocking fillers and gain themselves some extra time in bed before the kids come around. She signed off affectionately, writing, “Yours, Carole.”
Although the ongoing pandemic alongside safety protocols implemented in the United Kingdom might stop the doting grandmother from seeing her grandchildren, she has openly spoken about the sweet memories and traditions they share.
Last month, the 65-year-old disclosed what her grandkids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and Arthur, love about the holiday. The businesswoman noted that the festive holiday was always memorable for her family.
She mentioned that the kids get excited for the arrival of Father Christmas and think up ways to give him something special. Previously, Carole shared her plans for this year’s holiday in a winter message.
She revealed that she would let her grandkids decorate her tree over a Zoom call. Usually, the little ones help her choose where to place ornaments on the tree, and this year, she plans to continue the tradition.
According to a source close to the lovely couple, the prospect of a younger sibling for their 2-year-old son, Arthur, is particularly thrilling given the difficult circumstances that this year has brought.
