Duchess Kate, Prince William Enjoy First Christmas with Prince George

Kate Middleton and her husband Prince William are celebrating Christmas with other members of the royal family this year, including their son Prince George.

On Christmas morning, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a traditional service at St. Mary Magdalene Church alongside Queen Elizabeth II.

Other members of the royal family Prince Harry, the Duke of York and the Duke of Edinburgh also arrived at the church at Sandringham, as did heavily pregnant Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall.

However, the crowd gathered outside of the church was disappointed to learn that the newest member of the royal family, five-month-old Prince George, was not in attendance.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge decided that their first-born was too young this year- the child was born in July.

Former Kensington Palace chef Darren McGrady confirmed the royal parents' decision to Us magazine.

"The younger royals didn't go [to church on Christmas] when they were tiny," said McGrady.

Moreover, onlookers in the crowd that welcomed the royals outside of the church revealed answers to questions about Prince George.

"[The Duchess] told me he was having a lovely day but was more interested in the wrapping paper than the presents," said Cicely Howard, according to Mail Online.

Another fan revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge fielded many other questions about George as Christmas morning went on.

"There were lots of questions about George and where he is," said Ellen Parker, according to Mail Online. "They said he is well at home."

Yet another onlooker believed the royals had left Prince George at home because of the chilly temperatures.

Nevertheless, Prince William told the crowd more about his son's first Christmas.

"We've had a good morning with George and I can't wait until next year when he's bigger," the proud father said.

It is believed that the after church, the royals head home for a buffet complete with two turkeys and a flaming Christmas pudding, according to People.

Then, the royals will gather in the saloon for the queen's televised Christmas address before enjoying a three-course meal and a chocolate Yule log.
