A Morbid Anatomy Flea Market sounds like an event more suited to Halloween than Christmas but this seasonal gathering offers an intriguing batch of wares for shoppers with, shall we say, unusual tastes. Although it's not the funnest thing for the children, it is tradition. According to People , the viewing is usually followed by doing puzzles or going outside to play.
While the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made it very clear that they will split their Christmas traditions with both the royal family and the Middleton family, going to mass on Christmas is something they will not miss - but the location may change. When the family doesn't spend the day with the rest of the royals, they go to Kate's family's church in Berkshire instead , as they did in They also hand out candy canes at this church, so it's a win-win for the royal children.
Despite the fact that Prince William and Kate Middleton don't always attend this service with their children, the rest of the royal family and their children attend mass at the church of St. Mary Magdalene in Norfolk every Christmas morning. They wake up early and have a private service first, so the queen can take communion, and then they go to the public service at 11 a. For the second ceremony, the whole family walks to the church together - led by Prince Charles - except for the queen, who is driven. Like most families, the royal family exchanges gifts every year , but they do it on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas Day.
While at Sandringham House in Norfolk, all of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the queen finish decorating the tree before opening their presents. When it comes to the adults - think Prince William, Prince Harry, the queen, etc. The kids, however, get more gifts that aren't prank presents. Plus, the children open gifts from their parents and other side of the family on Christmas once their mass and lunch feast are over. While Princess Charlotte wasn't around at the time, she's now old enough to join in on the Santa visit herself as a pre-Christmas treat, and maybe even Prince Louis will be there.

This tradition is currently for the little ones' parents, especially Prince William and Prince Harry, but we have a feeling Prince George will get in on the action soon. Each year on Christmas Eve, the two brothers have a soccer match with friends, family, and staff from Sandringham, and, of course, they aren't on the same team. OK, this might be more fun for the parents, but every year there are royal portraits taken around Christmas - like Prince George's adorable pictures back in - and then Christmas cards are sent out from each royal family.
It's just so freaking cute.
As Lady Louise proves here, royal children love participating in traditional British holiday fun. The sponsors helped make this event a super success. You are commenting using your WordPress. You are commenting using your Google account.
