Kate Middleton, 39, and Prince William, 39, and their three children are expected to spend Christmas with the Queen Sandringham this year, even though they haven't spent the festive period with the Middleton since 2016.

And while the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as well as Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis usually spend Christmas with the rest of the Royal Family, the Middleton's are still very involved with their grandchildren throughout the lead up to the big day.

In fact, Carole Middleton has recently just how far she goes to make sure George, Charlotte and Louis are featured in their preparations.

Carole, 66, is the owner of a party supplies business, and it is on the company's Instagram page where she revealed her festive tradition.

The wife of Michael Middleton revealed in a post that she always buys two Christmas trees – one for the children to decorate, and another which she dresses herself.

She wrote: "Once again this year we plan to have two Christmas trees: one for the children to decorate and one which I do myself."

Carole has previously revealed that she is a huge fan of Christmas, and starts to plan her festive period as soon as Halloween ends.

Speaking to The Telegraph in 2018, Kate's mum said: "I start planning Christmas soon after Hallowe’en.

"I’m a big list-maker and I try to get everyone involved."

Sadly, her daughter, son-in-law and beloved grandchildren will not be spending the special day at her home and will instead be spending time with the Royal Family in Sandringham.

The Duchess of Cambridge has only spent two Christmas Days with her side of the family twice since she married William, first in 2012 and then in 2016.

While a huge sacrifice, royal experts have said the move from Kate and William shows that "now more than ever", they are "putting duty before self".
