Prince George And Princess Charlotte Start A New Christmas Tradition Regardless Of Queen Elizabeth's Wishes

December 27, 2018

Christmas is a time full of decade-long traditions- especially if you’re a member of a Royal family.

This year, all eyes were the British Royal Family. 2018 might have been dubbed one of the most sensational years for the Royal Family after two weddings, two babies, and another one on the way.

One of the most exciting moments of the family’s year was when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge became parents to their second son, Prince Louis. Prince Louis made for a family of five for the Cambridge Family, and it also allowed Prince George,5, and Princess Charlotte, 3, to be big siblings.

As a family of five, Christmas would surely look a little different for the Cambridge Family. Especially since this Prince George and Princess Charlotte were older.

For the last several decades, the Royal Family spends Christmas Morning at Sandringham for a Christmas morning church service. While they oldest Cambridge siblings didn’t debut at the traditional Christmas church service, Kate Middleton confirmed that they did start their own tradition.

According to the Mirror, the Royal Family follows the German tradition of opening gifts on Christmas Eve, rather than on Christmas morning. This is because of Queen Elizabeth’s German heritage.

But this year, Prince George and Princess Charlotte decided that they would start their own traditions! The Mirror shared that Kate told a fan outside of the church on Christmas morning that Prince George and Princess Charlotte broke that holiday tradition this year by getting "up very early” to open their gifts.

To be completely honest, we're surprised that this didn’t happen sooner! Will their early morning rising become a new tradition? We can’t imagine them sleeping in anytime soon, especially on Christmas!
