As the Queen is set to welcome her family for a traditional Christmas gathering at her Sandringham estate for the first time since the start of the pandemic, Prince William, Kate Middleton and their three children will undoubtedly spend parts of their Christmas there. However, royal expert Duncan Larcombe revealed to OK! that the Cambridges have a busy schedule for the end of the year that includes three Christmases.
Mr Larcombe said: “I think we’re looking at three Christmases rolled into one for William and Kate and their children.
“There will be Christmas on their own with their kids, the more formal celebrations at Sandringham with William’s family and then time with Kate’s family, the Middletons.”
Three Christmas celebrations will probably come with more presents to unwrap for Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.
But according to the royal expert, the presents they will get from their royal relatives are only the tip of the iceberg.
Kate’s children reportedly receive a massive amount of presents sent from fans.
Duncan Larcombe said: “But you’ve got to remember that with their profile, the children will be sent hundreds of presents from members of the public, as they are every year.
“In fact, William and Kate have to shield the children from being absolutely inundated with gifts from just about everyone.
“Let’s not forget that George is a future king and plenty of people want to give him and his siblings presents at Christmas.

The Christmas time Kate and William are to spend with the Queen is rumoured to be filled with simple gifts.
Mr Larcombe added: “The Sandringham Christmas is quite formal and traditional and the royals don’t tend to go in for lavish presents.
“Between royals, it’s always token gestures or jokey presents, there’s never anything of any real value.
“They don’t go mad for gift giving either and tend to give each other one present.”
According to biographer Brian Hoey, Prince Harry allegedly tested the boundaries of the Queen’s sense of humour and got her a shower cap with the slogan “Ain’t Life a B****” written on it.
The Queen reportedly liked her present very much.
