Prince George will soon be celebrating his first Christmas with his royal family, and new details of what the newest royal can expect have been released. He will be spending the actual holiday with family at the estate of great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, but will likely be joined by his grandparents from mother Kate Middleton's side of the family.
William, Kate, and George will head to the estate of Sandringham on Christmas Eve to join the rest of their family. They will likely attend church together and the men will likely go hunting on the bountiful estate. Presents will be exchanged on Christmas Eve, per tradition, and attend church on Christmas Day before greeting all those gathered outside the church.
"Legend has it that, despite having enough money to afford luxury gifts, the royal family instead gives each other joke presents. Perhaps Prince George will get something funny from his relatives. I also think he will be inundated with gifts from the public, just as he was when he was born. He is one lucky little prince!" ABC News contributor Victoria Murphy said.
Then it will be off to bed for the young prince, as his parents and grandparents attend a formal black-tie dinner.
While many have suggested that Kate's parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, have been invited to Sandringham, at least one royal observer does not believe that to be the case.
"I think this is extremely unlikely," Murphy argued. "Royal Christmas is steeped in tradition, and there is absolutely no precedent for in-laws being invited for Christmas. William and Kate spent last Christmas with her family, and I think this year they will see the Middletons at a different point over the festive period, and probably for New Year's."
It's unknown whether George will be brought out to the public or walk to the church with his family or ride in the car with Queen Elizabeth, but it's certain that everyone will be clamoring to see how George has grown and changed.
