Kate Middleton and Prince William’s Christmas In Berkshire

Reportedly, it is the royal couple’s first Christmas away from the royal family’s celebrations in Sandringham since the birth of their two kids Prince George and Princess Charlotte. However, it is the second time for the Duke and Duchess celebrating Christmas with the Middleton family. It was during Middleton’s first pregnancy that they spent time in Bucklebury as the Duchess faced acute morning sickness.

Prince William has always said that he wants to celebrate Christmas with both the royal family as well as the Middletons. Stay tuned for more updates on Kate Middleton and Prince William.
