It looks like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle aren’t the only people breaking royal protocol and traditions with all of their hand holding and dark black nail polish these days. As a matter of fact, Kate Middleton recently revealed that her own two children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, broke royal tradition at Queen Elizabeth’s Sandringham Estate during the holiday break.
According to Britain’s Express, because the British royal family is of German descent, they follow many German traditions during the Christmas holiday. While kids from all over the world often open their presents on Christmas morning, German kids open their presents on Christmas Eve with the family, which is exactly what the royals do, too.
Apparently, Prince George and Princess Charlotte couldn’t even wait until Christmas Eve to open up their gifts. The Duchess of Cambridge told royal fans outside of Sandringham church that her children were so excited to open their gifts, that they did so on Christmas Eve morning. George and Charlotte couldn’t wait until their afternoon tea to find out what they were getting for Christmas this year!
Of course, this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Even Prince William said on the record that he thinks his children get too many toys each year. Either way, it’s great to see that Prince George and Princess Charlotte get excited about the holidays just like so many other little kids their age. They might be royals, but they look forward to getting all of the latest toys and gadgets each year, too!
