Kate Middleton and Prince William ‘to spend Christmas in Norfolk with Duchess’ family’

Kate Middleton and Prince William, both 39, are gearing up to spend Christmas in Norfolk with some of the Middleton family, according to reports.

They will be joined by their three children Prince George, eight, Princess Charlotte, six, and Prince Louis, three, for a festive family occasion after Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was unfortunately forced to change her plans recently.

Royal reporter Richard Palmer shared the news on Twitter after "confirming" he’d been told the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's new festivities.

“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be spending Christmas in Norfolk and will be joined by some members of the Middleton family, royal sources have confirmed,” the journalist posted.

Royal fans shared their thoughts in the comments, with some writing their approval over Kate having the opportunity to spend Christmas Day with her biological family rather than William’s for a change.

One person wrote: “I’m very happy Kate will spend this Xmas with her family. She hasn’t done this since 2016.

"And it’s even more special bc I’m sure Alizee and James will be with them too."

Another person said they “could have guessed that”.

Others were disappointed at the idea of not being able to see the Cambridges engage in the Queen’s annual Christmas Day walk and church visit on the Sandringham estate.

“And I was expecting to see pictures on Christmas Day,” one follower shared alongside a teary emoji.

It comes amid reports that Her Majesty The Queen will be spending Christmas with her son Prince Charles and his wife Camilla instead this year.

The Royal family initially had grand plans for the entire clan to unite on December 25, but were sadly scuppered due to the escalating risk of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

While Royal fans may not get to see Kate's beautiful Christmas style on the big day this year, they can still get excited for the Duchess's televised carol service on Christmas Eve.

The heartwarming programme, which has already been filmed inside Westminster Abbey, is called Royal Carols: Together at Christmas and is a tribute to the service men and women and others who have worked and given a lot throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

The special programme will feature interviews and festive activities with the Duchess as she prepares for the carol concert, along with special performances from the likes of X Factor winner Leona Lewis.
